This sweetheart is the very handsome Max! He is around 8 years old and is a gorgeous, glamorous Collie Cross who has been waiting at Dogs Trust’s Merseyside rehoming centre for a few months now. He came to Dogs Trust from a loving home, but his beloved owner’s health was sadly failing. Please share Max’s page to help him find a new loving home!
Max is such an adorable boy who loves to watch TV, particularly nature documentaries, cuddled up to his favourite human. He likes to take his time to get to know new people, but once he knows and loves you, he will have such a strong bond and will trust you completely. You will have a wonderfully devoted friend in Max!
Max is a sensitive boy and he likes to have a safe place of his own in the home where he can feel relaxed and calm. He needs to have a child-free home and he also needs a home where he is the only pet.
Because he is an insecure little soul and gets anxious about things he isn’t familiar with, Max worries greatly when he goes outside as he anticipates that dogs and people he doesn’t know will approach him. For this reason, Max’s ideal home will be in the countryside in a peaceful area without too much traffic, and where he can have walks in quiet places.
Max loves a good run and he also enjoys having a roll around on the ground. If he gets the chance, cheeky Max will particularly enjoy rolling around in mud! He likes to play with toys too, but he needs quite robust ones as he does enjoy tearing toys apart.
Max needs dedicated, sympathetic owners, but he is by no means a monster. He just needs a home with people who will be patient and will understand that it’s just that Max worries about unfamiliar things. In the right home, and given plenty of time and space to slowly settle, Max is going to make someone a fabulous, devoted companion.
Max would be ideal for someone who wants to spend plenty of time with their dog and have them as a true best friend. He loves to be cuddled and he enjoys spending time snuggled up to you. He’s not an ‘old’ oldie though and he still enjoys running around, playing games and using his brain. He’s a clever boy and will enjoy learning new things. He is perfectly housetrained too.
Max’s new people will need to visit him a few times before taking him home, so that he can gradually get to know his new folks. And once he goes home, he will need to be allowed plenty of time to settle in and get used to his new surroundings. To help Max find his ideal home, Dogs Trust are rehoming him under their Shared Adoption Scheme which means that any future veterinary bills for Max will be paid for by Dogs Trust.
Max is waiting for a sensible, sympathetic and experienced dog-lover to see his photos, fall in love with his beautiful little face and think “I can help Max: I’m the person he’s waiting for”.
