**** TO BE KILLED - 5/24/2018 ****
"A BIG DOG PERSONALITY WRAPPED IN AN ADORABLE SMALL DOG BODY." A volunteer writes: Talk about living life to the Max! He may look like a tiny puppy but Max is as confident as they come and he's ready to take on the world with a big smile, a flurry of tail wags and a whole lotta happy energy. #Action is this guy's middle name and he practically flies downstairs in his excitement over going for a walk yet once he's free in the yard, rather than get all zoomy as you'd expect, that cute freckled nose settles right down to methodically sniffing every surface it can reach. He's not interested in the toys I offer but politely shows off his 'sit' for some reward treats softly nibbled from my hand & seems to be quite house trained too. In #playgroup with the ladies Max is a good-natured bundle of fun, greeting new #pups politely then bouncing around once they solicit his attention and he has no problem passing his #barking neighbors in the kennel area either. #Max does become 'over amorous' at times so he'll need some training (and neutering) to help conquer this bad habit but he's a very friendly boy & his heart is always in the right place, even when other parts of him are not. A big #dog personality wrapped in an adorable small dog body, Max is one of a kind in every way. Welcome him into your life today .

Max is displaying an extreme stress response to the shelter environment. While he remains social with his care takers, he has been very difficult to handle both in and out of his kennel. We are recommending placement with a New Hope Partner.
