Adoptable Dog Max
Adoptable Dog Max is the dog that gets excited to see you, every time he sees you. Even if it’s only been minutes since you were last in his eyesight, he gets excited like you haven’t been home in hours.
He is extremely food motivated and seems to be on a see-food diet, he sees it, he eats it. Be sure to keep your trash can lid closed around this guy or he’s likely to snoop around for a few extra treats!
Loves to Walk – Doesn’t Like Storms
Max loves to go on walks, as soon as you get his leash out he can’t contain his excitement! He’s amazing on the leash, doesn’t bother with other dogs, critters, or people walking near us. He doesn’t pull on the leash and has a real “Sunday stroll” pace about him.
Although he doesn’t show signs of separation anxiety, he does not like rain or thunderstorms. He tries to hide and shakes in distress.
This boy does great with his foster brothers and has a nonchalant attitude about meeting new dogs or people. He can be a bit food aggressive, growling at them when they get near the food bowl, but it’s something we’re working on and is common for a rescue as they become adjusted to new surroundings.
Max doesn’t play much but seems to enjoy when his foster brothers play with each other, as he sits on the sidelines watching and wagging his tail. He’s good in the car and likes to hang his head out of the window.
There were some times in the beginning where Max would growl a little to let someone know he was uneasy, and he doesn’t like to be picked up or pulled on. Of course, who does? He needs some patient loving care to adjust and learn he is safe with new people, and it’s wise to get “permission” before picking up any dog, especially seniors.
He’s potty trained and will let you know with a bark when he needs to go outside. Speaking of barking, this guy has the cutest bark. It’s very hound dog-ish and sounds like he’s howling. Also, at times he loves “talking”, grunting or groaning at you to get your attention. He’s not an excessive barker though, only when communicating.
Max would love a home where he can cuddle up to you on the couch or in a dog bed all day long. He dreams of a home with a nice sunny spot where he can lounge outside, soaking up the rays. Max would be the perfect companion for an older person or someone with a pretty laid-back lifestyle.

If you believe you could provide a safe and loving forever home for this dog, please fill out an application with the dogs’ name on it.
*Be advised, we have a couple of volunteers processing hundreds of applications. We are unable to call everyone back as we do not have ANY employees. Our dedicated volunteers and foster parents will check references of the applications that appear to be a good match. At that time, if you are chosen, we will contact you to arrange a home visit.
The adoption fee helps to cover costs, as each dog is fully vetted, and treated, as needed to prepare them to move forward in their new life. You pay no fee unless you are chosen to adopt.
