61 lbs.

Crate Trained!!!


“Old dogs are like guardian angels with fur, watching over us with a wisdom that only comes from a lifetime of shared joy and sorrows.”

Welcome Max! This sweet guy is new to our program from the local shelter. He is around eight years old and weighs 61 pounds. We are so happy to have him and know you’ll love him too! 

Housebreaking, Crate-Training, and Commands

Max is both housebroken and crate trained! 

He hasn’t had a single accident in his foster home. He goes into his kennel when asked and immediately settles at night. When he thinks a party is happening without him during the day, he does get a little upset but eventually quiets down and is happy to hang out until he’s let back out. 

Behavior around other Dogs, Cats, and Kids

Max is a PERFECT dog’s dog! He loves to play and is pretty good at reading others’ social cues. He isn’t reactive and has been a joy to have around his foster canine siblings. 

He also has been great with children! He’s met children aged 1.5-12 and he has been great with all of them — especially given that they were respectful of him. 

Behavior around People

Max is a friendly guy. He may give a “hey, i’m here!” bark, but otherwise he’s excited to smell new friends and get pets from them. He is a pretty mellow guy but loves to get pets (but isn’t needy in any sense of the word). He loves to give little licks and it makes his foster mom’s heart so happy! 

Exercise Needs

True to the breed, Max is an active boy and age hasn’t slowed him down! He loves to go for walks and to run and to get his energy out with his favorite people. He will let you know that he’s antsy (pacing and whining) and that’s your cue to get moving! He even will take matters into his own hands and throw a ball around for himself if he’s got a ball. 

We’ve all become a bit smitten with Max and think you will, too! Contact us today!
