Maximus's Story: Maximus's owner took him in from a friend to join his own Patterdale. The family then got a Lurcher pup. Maximus also received in a visiting cocker spaniel and Patterdale. The 3 dogs have had fights and the family decided Maximus should be rehomed with reluctance. Maximus has lived with a young child and older child. Rescue Remedies offered a Rescue place saving his life. Maximus is neutered, chipped, and fully vaccinated. Maximus is in boarding kennels near Gatwick whilst awaiting his new family.

If you are interested in rehoming one of our dogs, please complete our ONLINE HOMING QUESTIONNAIRE. It is always the first step in our rehoming process. Upon application, you must be ready to take in your new dog within seven days. For more detailed information, please see our Homing Process.

Please support our work and help our long stay dogs: Our minimum adoption donation is £175. This supports our continuing rescue work and is non-refundable. We exist solely due to the goodwill and donations of our supporters and volunteers. Our dogs need supportive families who will offer them patience, time and tolerance whilst they settle in their new homes. Our Rescue offers all our dogs back-up for life.

Please note: Dog laws have changed, with zero public tolerance and prejudice against bull breeds and terriers. Our Rescue asks new owners to keep their dog on a lead in public spaces and manage and support its encounters with new dogs and people, so as not to place the dog's life at risk. Destruction and Control Orders are commonplace nowadays.
Maximus's progress through our Rescue is below.
We work with our dogs, who often reveal a different picture and positive skills as they build trust.
Original Referral information: Maximus's owners asked us as Patterdale Specists to help Maximus
Maximus came into us on the 1st September 2019

Maximus and his tennis ball!! We had some fun!
Maximus and his tennis ball!! We had some fun!
I took little Maximus out for the first time yesterday. He was very pleased to be heading out into the changeable weather and, once we had the leads on, off we trotted. Maximus is a typical busy terrier.. lots of sniffing and high energy walking. After a fairly long walk we went into the paddock and he enjoyed teasing me with his tennis ball and having a good run around. Maximus is a young boy who really deserves a home that can help him grow and enjoy his best terrier life.

I fell in love with this happy young boy as soon as he came in, just realised that my post disappeared ... so ...
Maximus is enthusiastic, intelligent, trainable, loves people, already knows some commands, is super company & really wants to please!
We had such fun in the paddock. He was so happy to come out with me, when I let him off the lead he bounded about briefly then had a good sniff about. Maximus watched me intently (one eye firmly in me whilst sniffing!) Every time I trotted off to try & hide, he rushed back over to me for praise & a quick stroke/body rub. He sat for a bit of sausage (I'm sure he has been taught that). Within 10 minutes he would lie down... and stay there while I dropped sausage rewards! Maximus was very gentle in taking treats. I didn't want to get him over excited but I threw a ball for him which he quickly retrieved. Happy for me to hold it, I wouldn't play tug with it. When I turned my back & ignored him, he dropped the ball. He sat and stayed briefly, while I slowly picked up & threw the ball again. I love that Maximus can be calm & really tries to please! Good boy Max! If a terrier family were prepared to train & love this active youngster, he'd be the best companion! Handsome too love4.gif
You can tickle my tummy, head, paws!

Love love love this boy . Every time I say his name I want to sing it...
what a great dog 🐕, very engaged.
He was very shouty coming out of the kennel block telling his kennel mates off as we left .
As soon as we got to the paddock he couldn’t wait to let off some steam and chase the balls .
After a run around off lead in the paddock we set off for our walk.
He absolutely loves his tennis balls , he carried it all the way and it definitely helps him passing other dogs . I guess it’s like his comfort blanket .
Thoroughly enjoyed my time with Maximus today....oh and I have to mention he loves water and has to make a point of walking through every single puddle he came across 😂

I took little Maximus out for the first time today. We had a lovely game of ball and then tug-of-war, in the paddock followed by a walk. He carried his little teddy the whole way round. He was easy to walk and behaved very well when we met other the dogs. He’s a lovely little character.
