Max's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Max's Story...
04-15-08 Max is a collie mix with an unknown in the mix, possibly black lab. He weighs 58 lbs., is 10+ years old, already neutered, vaccinated, on preventatives. Max is housebroken, walks well on the leash, rides nicely in a vehicle, has lived with older children.

Max is an owner surrender, an example of "Life happens!" in these challenging economic times.

Max has been scheduled for a dental. With his age, it will be a light sedative. The benefits of a dental outweigh the risks. Bacteria from nasty teeth enter the kidneys, affecting adversely the heart & lungs.

We will be evaluating Max for the next few days or weeks. Having been a beloved family pet it may take Max some time to settle into the rescue routine.
ChicoMan (on our Adoptable pg., in foster care) is still having a challenge of adjustment to pack life after a lifetime as an only fur-child. He has taught us much.

Lucky Max! He has a Fairy DogMother who will help us care for him.
Old black dogs are generally the last to be adopted at a shelter & the first to be put down.
Max may live out his days here in tribute to all the old black ones that are not as fortunate as he is to land in a senior rescue. Our goal is always to find a fur-ever home. In lieu of that, we offer them a soft pillow until it's their time to become Angel Dogs/Pups, Bridge Kids.

Tom T Hall - Old dogs & children & watermelon wine!
Max is just an old dog, failing eyesight, diminished hearing, gets around rather lively on a warm day. He loves lying in the sun, soaking up the rays.
Doc did find what appears to be fatty tumors, nothing to warrant surgery at his age.

Max had a massage & bath with Polly's Precious Paws. Paula called our attention to several of the tumors on his body, some appear fatty, others appear attached.
We will have him checked out again when his dental is done.

04-19 Max is adjusting slowly. He ate his full breakfast, perfect house manners. He finds thick soft pillows to lie upon. He has also found a large Kuranda dog bed much to his liking.
He is learning to co-exist with the small dogs. He totally ignores the resident cat which suits T.C. (Top Cat) just fine!


The adoption fee ranges from $150 to $300.
The fee is based upon veterinary care, age & size of dog.
The higher adoption fee on the younger small dogs helps care for the older dogs that take longer to find fur-ever homes.
Senior citizens and disabled receive a discount.
We also offer a discount to those in uniform keeping us safe.
Land of the free because of the brave.

Our adoption process begins with the e-mail or phone call to us. Please be prepared to furnish your complete name, address, telephone number, your veterinarian contact information & at least two personal references. We will then call you to ask a series of questions.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Max, a Cole Camp Collie/Labrador Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Collie/Labrador Retriever for sale in Cole Camp, or seeking a Collie/Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Cole Camp.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Cole Camp already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Cole Camp breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Collie/Labrador Retriever breeders who help with Collie/Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Cole Camp paves the way for another one to be saved.
