Max came to HSS as an OR after his owner passed away. He is 8 years old, 17 inches, thin at 27 pounds, is now UTD, neutered, heartworm/fecal negative.
An update from Max's foster mom: Max originally was an only dog living with 2 family members. He didn't see a lot time outside or on a leash. Max has been living with 5 other dogs since coming to HSS. He came into his foster home, made friends and began playing immediately.
Max is a lover boy and wants to be close on a regular basis. He doesn't give a lot of kisses but he leans in for petting. Just when you aren't looking he is next to you, wagging his tail.
He has recently discovered toys and can play alone or with the other dogs. If you leave a squeaky toy out at night, you may just be woken up by the squeak in the middle of the night.
Max is currently working on learning basic commands. He is also learning to walk well on a leash, which only required a little guidance. Occasionally he hesitates at the entry way of a door, especially if the texture of the flooring changes.
He is not much of a barker and hasn't ever gotten on furniture. If he were to be put up there, I'm sure he wouldn't mind.
Max is looking for a home that will show him attention and love. He has a joyful personality that I believe is only beginning to shine. Will you be the one to give him that special home?
