What is your name? Maxine.

How old are 
you? Eight years 

What’s your breed? A border collie

Where are you living at the moment? The Dogs Trust in West Calder.

Why are you there? I’m looking for a place to call home.

Where would you like to be? I am a pretty and people-friendly dog. I adore being fussed over and cuddled and love being around adults. I am scared of children and try to avoid them. Everyone describes me as very sweet and loving. I love to go for walks and to play fetching a ball. 
I’m great in the car and happy pottering in the garden.

What qualities do you need from your owners? I love to be the centre of attention but I’m not happy with other dogs around me. I would like a quieter home where I can be given lots of cuddles.

Anything else? Maxine is vaccinated, neutered, micro-chipped and comes with insurance and free behavioural advice for the rest of her life.
