“Do you know what’s a sick deal? Friendship.” – Schmidt (Max Greenfield), New Girl

Welcome Max! Max is just under a year old, and will be around around 40 pounds as an adult. Max is a pretty talkative pup, and is a fun and quirky guy once he gets to know you!

This guy is fully potty trained and kennel trained! Max will even run into his kennel on command, and immediately runs to his kennel when he hears Foster Mom start to get his food ready. He may try to talk you into letting him back out of his kennel if he thinks that there’s a party going on without him, but otherwise stays pretty quiet and relaxes while Foster Mom is gone. He both super food motivated and eager to learn, which makes him a perfect dog to train. Max has already mastered a few commands with Foster Mom, and has incredible recall for her – if she calls for him at the dog park, he’ll immediately stop and run to her side! 

Max has made great strides in becoming more confident being out in the world! He still needs extra time to warm up to new people, but once you’re his friend he’s your friend for life. Max has even made friends with some local children who earned his trust by being slow and respectful of him. His shyness especially melts away when with his favorite people, and he lets Foster Mom do whatever she wants – trim his nails, bathe him, use him as extra weight for body workouts, you name it. While most dogs would want some space after that, Max will come running back to her to try to get more attention – he absolutely loves to be snuggled up next to his person.

Max currently lives with multiple dogs of all sizes, and does well with them! He is a frequent dog-parker, and enjoys a good rough-housing session with his canine-friends. Max likes to talk to his friends when he plays, and overall enjoys being vocal about what’s going on in his head. Even though Max is down to clown with other dogs, he has shown great skills in changing his playing style for different dogs, like Foster Mom’s personal dog. He lets her chihuahua he lets stomp all over his head, and loves to play gently with her! Max can also entertain himself if his friends are busy, and will toss around his stuffed toys to keep himself busy! Once that is done, he’s ready to lay his head in Foster Mom’s lap and relax on the couch, or cuddle up close for bedtime.
