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...
Max was surrendered to us from a family who wasn't able to care for him any more. He is a super sweet dog, who enjoys affection and cuddles. We believe he is a border terrier mix, and about 4 years old. Max weighs approx 40 pounds. Max's fosters feel that he needs a home with a fenced yard. Another dog in the home would be nice... though not absolutely necessary. Max loves to spend time with other dogs, enjoys the dog park, but does not yet have recall skills. Max is good with cats... he wants to snuggle them. Max is a very sweet dog who aims to please, so with some time and consistency, he will be well-trained. Max loves car rides and walks. He pulls a bit on leash, but this is getting better with practice.
Max lived with several children in the past. He did growl at a child in his foster home, but warmed up to her after a bit (and with the help of treats)...this was on the day that he was moved from his home, and crated in a car for almost 4 hours, so we figure it was stress-related.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Max, a Barrie Border Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Border Terrier for sale in Barrie, or seeking a Border Terrier dog from a breeder in Barrie.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Barrie 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 Barrie 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 Border Terrier breeders who help with Border Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Barrie paves the way for another one to be saved.
