Dog Of The Week: Maxwell
Maxwell is loving and friendly boy when he knows you. He is a shy boy who needs a little extra time to get to know new people but when he does he is very sweet, loving, fun and loyal. Maxwell enjoys going for his walks in the woods where he can explore all things new and playing with his toys. He is house-trained.
Maxwell is looking for a quiet adult home with owners who are patient and will allow him time to settle into a new routine and to continue his training. He needs his confidence built up but once he is settled he will be a fun and loving companion.
Maxwell really enjoys running around off lead having fun chasing after his toys. He is yet to master brining the toy back but with lots of encouragement he is starting to do it. Maxwell is great wee chap who will make a delightful pet.

Below are videos for four of our 'unusual suspects', six wonderful collies who are all a little bit different from the usual - for example, some are very relaxed about being home alone, and others could spend time in a cosy outdoor kennel. You can read about them all in more detail on our blog, or give us a ring to find out more: 01506 873 459.
3 year old Collie Cassie loves her walks; she is a very outdoorsy dog. She is happiest around water - she splashes in it, digs in it and fishes for stones She would be great fun for someone who loves long walks in the country side.
Cassie is worried by strangers and dogs but is very obedient and keen to learn new behaviours. She loves when we play with her but is also happy lazing around most of the day. She needs an adult only home and would prefer to be the only pet.
Distinguishing Feature: Cassie would be happy living outside in a cosy den and she's relaxed about being home alone.
