 the Home page to start your search for available dogs!  Thank you!

Maxwell's Silver Hammer (aka MAX) is a 3.5-to-4-month-old BC mix who is excited about finding his forever home. MAX has the most adorable markings & a sparkling blue eye. He is very friendly with people & other dogs, & he has been exposed to cats & other animals on the small farm where he is fostering. MAX is good with being handed & being held, & he gives gentle kisses. He loves to play with tug toys & balls, & he is very treat-motivated, so he will be fun to train.  He also loves to play in the sprinkler!! MAX will sit for a treat, & is very quick to learn new behaviors.  He sleeps in a puppy pen at night with his sister Penny Lane, & he eats his meals in a crate. He is working on housebreaking.

MAX is micro-chipped, current on vaccines, worming & flea/tick & heartworm prevention. As a condition of puppy adoption, he will need to be altered by his new owner when he reaches approximately 6 months (specific time to be determined by your vet). In addition to the adoption fee, puppy adoption requires a $100 spay/neuter deposit. Upon our receiving the spay/neuter certificate from you, the deposit is refunded.

MAX is being fostered in Colusa in Colusa County, California.
