Maisy



Maisy Moo is a 45-lb two-year-old fun-loving border collie mix seeking an active home. This confident, enthusiastic girl has such a happy personality with a silly side that will leave you laughing. Maisy is fully housebroken and kennel trained and will go to her kennel when asked. She has learned that the kennel is her quiet place and will go there to lay down during the day.  She absolutely loves to play ball, tug and run beside you.


Maisy is doing well with positive reinforcement and nothing in life is free training in her foster home. She knows sit, down, wait, wave, and stay.  She is progressing nicely with her leash skills and has also begun learning some fun new tricks.  She is still very much a puppy at times and needs to learn what behavior is appropriate. She would do best in a home with an experienced handler who can make a commitment to her training. 


Maisy does well with other dogs and would do well in a home with a young or playful dog.  She can be a little overzealous when first introduced and has a fairly energetic play style, but she responds well to other dogs’ cues and quickly learns how to accommodate their boundaries. She has had multiple play dates with variety of other dogs, and she is just eager to have a friend and play. Maisy does will with the cats in her foster home, while she hasn’t become best friends she doesn’t bother them, 


Maisy is a high energy dog  and is looking for a family excited to meet her physical and mental needs.  With her long legs, toy drive, speed and agility plus her eagerness to learn new tricks, she has the potential to be a great sports dog prospect or wonderful running and hiking partner. If you’re looking for a beautiful, enthusiastic partner for your adventures during the day and belly-rubbing cuddles at night, Maisy Moo might be your perfect girl!

Maisy was an outside farm dog prior to entering MOKAN.  She had a history of running through her underground electric fence when she became bored.  As a result she needs a traditional above ground fence to keep her safe while she stretches her legs.  She has been learning that it is good to stay close to her people but she will need lots of love and reinforcement. 


Maisy is being fostered in the Kansas City area

Havoc

Havoc is an 8 month old Border Collie or close mix.  He came to us with a badly broken leg that sadly required amputation.  But he doesn't let that slow him down!  Havoc does everything a 4 legged dog can do-he runs, jumps, climbs, get on furniture, uses stairs and keeps up with the rest of the dogs in his foster home.  We usually don't even notice that he's missing a leg!


Havoc loves attention and will spend all day with you if you let him.  He loves to cuddle and be petted.  He also enjoys toys-chewing and shredding to be exact! He is also very food motivated. 


Havoc is good with cats and other dogs.  He may be a little protective of his toys at first but quickly warms up and will play with other dogs if they are interested.  He would be happy as an only dog but would also enjoy a playmate.


He is crate trained-but sometimes will bark in the morning if he gets up before us.  He is mostly housebroken.  Sometimes he enjoys hanging out in the back yard but will bark when he is ready to come back in.  He knows how to sit (most of the time) and kennel on command.  He is used to walking on a leash. 


Havoc is about 35 lbs and will be a great family pet or companion.
Havoc will need a standard above ground fence to keep him safe. He is being fostered in Springfield, MO.

Buddy

Meet Buddy he is a two year old, 32 pound smooth coat border collie.  Buddy came to Mokan from a very nice woman who found him dragging a large chain. After having him checked for a chip and unable to locate his owner, she decided to take him in and care for him while waiting for a spot in rescue to open.

He is a medium/high drive dog that could be a working/herding guy, although he has not been instinct tested.  With his small size and speed he could easily excel at agility or another dog sport.

He also could adjust to a less rural life if he was given some consistent daily exercise or activity. He’s going to need a job to do. Buddy is learning to live on 3 acres currently where he can run and play with his foster brothers and sisters.  Buddy would love an active family that will take him on hikes and include him in family activities.

The biggest challenge with this is that Buddy has an interest in cars.  We are working with him to not chase after cars and are making progress.  Due to this Buddy must have a standard fenced yard to keep him safe. You can tell that Buddy didn’t have much exposure to cars and city activity as he is hyper alert on car rides and when we go into Petco or Ace Hardware where he can get out and meet everyone.  Buddy loves to do this. He is very happy to be on the receiving end of any attention from people.  

Buddy has had to adjust to being in a home with multiple dogs.   He has a tendency to be a bit of a bully and may nip the face of other dogs until he is given a growl or a nip back.  Buddy is a quick learner and he is getting better at reading dog cues and backing off.  He would hog all the attention if he could. Buddy has become a good playmate to my 5 year female bc.  

Buddy knows some basic commands and has shown no resource guarding. He is getting really good with the “come” command and is getting better every day with our off leash activities.  He also is decent with leash walking.  

He is used to being crated at night and in my absence and he may carry on for a few minutes, but then settles down.  Buddy had not had much inside experiences and he has quickly learned housetraining and has only had a couple of accidents and his marking has completely resolved. 

He has become interested in toys and he especially likes the squeaky ones or the ones that are of interest to my other dogs!   Buddy has been around a lot of people in our house and he relishes that excitement.  He is pretty easy to redirect and I don’t worry at all about him with new people.  If you love the border collie energy and bright personality and high trainability, you will want to consider this guy.  He is fun and funny and a little quirky. 

Buddy is being fostered in Columbia, MO.

Kensa

Kensa is an energetic, strikingly beautiful, tri-color smooth-coat Border Collie.  She is likely approximately 1-2 years old.  Kensa was found with a collar and invisible fence collar (no tags and no chip) and was delivered to a vet clinic, where she stayed for a few weeks.  After no owner claimed her, she was turned over to Mo-Kan.

Kensa adores people and is extremely affectionate.  She will melt your heart the first time you meet her.  She will look at you with her adoring eyes, lean her head into you, and once you start petting her, she’ll beg you to be hers forever.  She is wonderful with children, and lays down for belly rubs from them. 

She is happiest when she is going for a walk, when catching a ball or Frisbee, and when playing with toys (while “talking” to her toys with happy grumbles and rumbles).  She will also cheerfully accompany you on a jog if you are a runner.

She is completely housebroken.  She has learned to crate on command and once in is calm and comfortable. She sleeps through the night quietly in her crate as well. 

 In just a very short time, Kensa has learned sit and down, and is quickly improving on heel, stay and come.  She is a quick learner when there are no distractions, and we are working on keeping her attention with distractions as well. 

 She is timid of new situations, but will accept new things once she has time to observe.  She can get overwhelmed at times by a jumble of new sights and sounds, but a little quiet time will renew her.  Patience and training are key in helping Kensa to get over some of the anxiety she has with new situations. She is anxious with thunderstorms, but copes quite well if given a quiet place during the storm.

 She was initally afraid of baths, but now she is becoming more accepting of them.

 Kensa is very energetic and intelligent.  She would thrive in a family wanting to support a high level of exercise and training to keep her mind occupied.  She would also likely excel in a variety of dog sports.

 Due to Kensa’s exuberance in play, the best fit for Kensa would  be with a balanced dog about her size that likes to play or she would do great as an only dog. She tends to play too rough with small dogs.

 Kensa respects cats if the cat is dog-savvy and knows how to deliver the “don’t touch me” vibe (a barn cat “trained” Kensa in about 10 seconds simply with a “death stare”… Kensa now steers clear).  She was initially very timid of horses, but after just a couple visits to the barn, she is far more relaxed (though maintains a safe and respectful distance from the horses). 

 Kensa can’t wait to find her forever family.  When she does, I guarantee she will shower you with endless affection.

 Kensa is being fostered in the Wichita, KS area.  She will need a standard upbove ground fenced yard to keep her safe.
