Hi I’m Max I have many versions of my name but Max is the simplest. I am a TDU (Therapy Dogs United) certified therapy dog. My human partner is Kelsey Yeats-Fleegel and together we make up an animal assisted therapy team! I was adopted at about 6 months old from a rescue organization in Minnesota. I was born in South Dakota had a really rough start to life but between my foster mom and my furever mom I have been given a great life and I try to give that back to others.

My humans thought that I would be a mixed breed, however the DNA test came back 100% border collie. I am a mix of most of the boarder collies including the “rare” types. For instance, I have merle, and I’m short hair instead of long, and if you look at my tail in the sunlight, its actually red. My genetics make me super smart, and helped me be easy to train, and my unique life experiences make me a great therapy dog! I have some human siblings, a dog brother, and two cat sisters so I am good at getting along with people and fur friends in all kinds of situations. This has helped my fur mom and partner out since she works with a lot of teens and kids. We are willing to see just about anyone!
