Shaba and Max are 13 and 11 year old Cross-Breed. Shaba is a 13-year-old Crossbreed girl and her handsome son Max is 11. They are in an Oldies Club foster home in Newcastle upon Tyne, waiting for someone to offer them a lovely permanent home. Shaba and Max have been great with dogs visiting their foster home. They are just a little wary of barking dogs when out walking. We don’t know how they are with cats, but their foster carer says: “I have a lizard that wanders around the house, and 2 tortoises walking around the garden, and they are absolutely fine with them, after an initial curiosity and tentative sniffing they just ignore them“.
Shaba and Max are so gentle and friendly that their foster carer would have no concerns with them being around children of any age. They are very tolerant of her 2-year-old grandson and allow him to brush them and stroke them. They aren’t dogs that enjoy playing with a ball or toys though – they just want to be near you and be loved.
They are both happy to jump straight in the car. Max likes to sit up on the seat so he can see out of the window, wearing his seatbelt harness. Shaba tends to lie down but is quite happy to be in the car. Favourite pastimes are walks, being stroked and petted, and they both seem to enjoy being groomed and will sit quite patiently while being brushed.
They are both extremely placid but Max is slightly timid and jumps at loud noises, however he is not bothered at all by the hoover or other noise where he knows or can see the source of it. Shaba and Max’s ideal home is any loving, caring home where the family will be happy to pet them! Shaba and Max are neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, wormed and flea treated. Shaba has recently had a dental. They don’t have any current health issues and are fit for their ages.
