Maximus is a 4 month old Border Collie mix given up to a shelter in Virginia. He is active, playful and may be too much for small kids. He loves other dogs. Please read our PUPPY POLICY BELOW before emailing.


  • Puppies will not be crated long hours each day (over 6).
  • We prefer puppies to go to homes with older children (over 8 yrs).
  • We require that you use a crate when the puppy is being housebroken and trained.
  • We only adopt our animals as inside pets, let outside to go potty and play on nice days. We want our animals to be part of their new family.
  • Once you pick a puppy that you like, you will need to fill out an adoption application. Multiple applications on a Puppy may be accepted.
  • An application does not guarantee you will get the puppy selected.
  • We will do a house visit and you will need to sign a contract.
  • If the puppy is to be a second pet, we will “test” the puppy in your home for
  • compatibility with the pets you already have.

ADOPTION FEE FOR PUPPIES IS $250. All pups are spayed/neutered, current on vaccinations, microchipped and wormed.
