"Max (Maxie or Max-a-million) is a happy, prancing, playful, athletic little man. He loves people but he loves ‘his’ person best. He is a master cuddler and wants to be by your side, whether that is cuddling on the couch, playing tug-of-war, playing a game of fetch or hanging out while you work or do other things around the house. Once he’s had his walk and/or some play time, he settles down and curls up on a comfy bed to chill while you do your thing.
He is completely house-trained. He has had no accidents at all. His current routine is to get up first thing in the morning and go for a walk (20 to 30 mins) where he does his business and sniffs all the sniffs. He gets an afternoon walk and an evening walk. Each time we come home we take him out for a pee.
Max has done extremely well meeting other dogs. He does all the proper dog meeting techniques and then moves on his way. He does well with our two pups (a male and female), but he is not interested in playing with them or sleeping together – he’s a people dog.
He is great on leash and loves to prance along at a good clip (you will get your steps in and may work up a little sweat as well!). He ignores other dogs when he's out for a walk.
He is very athletic. He can jump up to great heights and loves to chase balls and play fetch and tug-of war. He would love a companion who wants to play with him and give him the exercise he needs. He would be great at agility or disc dog!
He has shown that he is shy in certain ways. He is shy of going into bathrooms but has gotten over that fairly well. He is a brave and curious little guy. He is also shy around toddlers. He has not been around cats. He is good in the car. He doesn’t bark except when his furry foster brother and sister bark, although he has barked a little when one of us comes home. He may bark in the future once he is in his forever home.
Max is a great little guy that will make someone very happy. He wants a devoted life companion that will treasure him and give him the exercise and love he craves, and he will give back in spades!"
