This sweet boy is a bundle of energy and always happy. Max is only 9 months old and still very much acts like a puppy. We believe him to be a Jack Russell Terrier and Cattle Dog mix - two breeds that need to burn energy and have a job to do. Because of this, we are looking for a specific home.
CATS - Max is playful with cats and does not retaliate if they swat him. He would chase one that runs though (playing) so a home with a dog-friendly cat or no cats is best.
DOGS - Max currently lives in a home with two large dogs. A submissive male and dominant female. While he likes playing with other dogs, he is a resource guarder when inside (food, bones, etc) so he would do best in a home with no other dogs - but having dog friends to play with outside the home.
IDEAL ADOPTER - Max would thrive with an adopter that wants to do training. His foster mom thinks he would be a phenomenal agility dog, running partner, and adventure sidekick.
KIDS - At this time we are looking for a home with no kids under ten - at least until Max learns some better manners - he is mouthy and a jumper!
We know Max has the potential to be a great dog- He is smart. Trainable. And loves people. He just needs the right people to get him there. Could that be you!?

All Kalamazoo Animal Rescue dogs & puppies are spayed or neutered prior to adoption. Dogs have been heartworm tested and if appropriate (age and time of year) all dogs and puppies are given heartworm preventative. All are given medication to rid them of roundworms and checked and treated for fleas & ear mites, if needed. Dogs and puppies are given distemper vaccines and depending on how long the pet has been in foster care, additional distemper vaccine(s) may be necessary and the expense will be incurred by the adopter. Any canine over 4 months of age is brought current on the Rabies vaccine. Additional vet care may have been provided depending on the particular animal's needs. Dogs are individually priced as above.
It is in the best interest of pooch and owner to enroll in an obedience class soon after adoption. After all, you have a lot to learn about your new friend. Both PetSmart and the Kalamazoo Dog Training Club offer a discount to owners with newly adopted dogs. Enroll before any behavior problems start - you won't regret it!
