🎸 MAX 🎸

Border Collie cross (possibly some hound and/or Heeler), approx. 9 months old, 35 lbs.

Max is a sweet soul, craving a patient and caring home to belong to. He is a bit skittish, but super intelligent, and wants to please. Max will benefit from solid obedience training to help build confidence as he grows into an adult.

To Max, life is uncertain and new. He gets car sick when going on outings, but he loves exploring, so the upset tummy is something he may eventually overcome when the reward is fun out doing new things.

This boy is extremely loving and tends to be a bit “mouthy” when excited. It seems as if everything goes in his mouth…fingers, toes, bones, dog toys. He can be a bit possessive of the couch and gets jealous easily. With training and established boundaries Max may not show this insecurity for long. Even so, we recommend a passive fur-sibling or life as an only dog. (Again, he’s young and can learn to overcome these insecurities and quirks with the positive guidance of a solid pack leader.

A home with NO CATS is a good home for Max. He will give chase. Small children or toddlers may not be a good fit for him as he could become excited and jump on them or knock them down unintentionally.

Max loves being outside or cuddling with his people. He does NOT like being in the crate.

Sweet Max will be a work in progress until he’s found his groove with the family of his dreams. Once he knows he’s part of the family, you’ll be showered with his unconditional love and affection. He’s a true sweetheart.

Qualifying applicants will be contacted by our Adoption Coordinator with next steps and an opportunity to set up a Meet & Greet.

Our process is NOT a “first come, first served” process. Our team carefully reviews and interviews applicants for the best possible fit for each adoptable pet, and potential family. We look forward to facilitating a positive and solid adoption for all of our adoptees and their future families.

Adoption fees help cover the costs of Transport, Distemper/Parvo Boosters, Rabies shot, Microchip, and Spay/Neuters, as well the dog comes with a collar, harness and leash. You will also receive a PetSmart puppy packet with 100.00's of dollars of savings, you get a FREE bag of food, 30 min private training session with a certified dog trainer as well as a free checkup at Banfield.

Submitting an application in no way guarantees you a dog as we receive several applications and will choose the best home for the dog.

Must live within 30 miles of Eugene!! If you live outside the 30 mile area, still send an email as some time, we can make special arrangements.

Wiggly Tails Dog Rescue is proud to rescue dogs in urgent need and to also assist local owners who can no longer care for their small breed dog. All our dogs are up to date on their shots and spay or neutered. We do require a foster or adoption application for those interested and will visit your home for a meet and greet before releasing the dog to you.
