Hi, I'm Max! You can watch me star in my very own adoption video by clicking here!
I am a super sweet and goofy boy and I love to keep my tail wagging. I am a 6 year old Shepherd mix with the softest fur! My foster parents say I should be able to get around more easily if I lost some weight so they have me on a diet, which is okay because I still get to eat some of my favorite veggies like cauliflower! I would love to have a forever home where you can take me on a few walks a day to help me continue on my 2019 weight loss goal. My foster mom says I am perfect on a leash! I am six years young, neutered and up to date on all my shots too!
A few more great things about Max:
-Great in the car
-Does great in a crate, but behaves well alone in the foster's house and does not need to be crated.
-He knows basic commands, including sit, down, stay and 'go crate'.
-Good with dogs he has met and lives with three others in his foster home.
-Is good with the cats in his foster home after a short (1 week) adjustment period of trying to find out what they were by casually following them around trying to sniff them.
-Is very affectionate! Everyone who has met him loves his laid back disposition.
Max is a native of the Turks and Caicos Islands (TCI) and a Potcake, which is a mixed breed prevalent there and known as a shepherd type stray. OPH partners with the TCI SPCA to find homes for these dogs in the States! I have a guardian angel that thinks I am very special and has sponsored me.
Max's best forever home match would be an owner genuinely interested in being his rock who is willing to continuing to follow the training his foster family has provided as well as continued diet and exercise until he reaches his target goal and then continuing a healthy weight. Max seeks a forever home where he will be loved and cared for properly and in turn he will love you and be your loyal buddy. Max's ideal weight is about 70 pounds and he is working hard to slim down. Max is neutered and up to date on shots.
