No visitors for Maximus ☹
Max was first surrendered to the shelter in December 2016. He lost his home and his family when they chose to move without him. After spending a full YEAR at the shelter, last December he was finally adopted..but unfortunately it was only for a very short time. Max was returned back to the shelter only a couple of months later.
Max's obstacle is that he can sometimes be nervous around people, so he needs an experienced adopter who can give him lots of structure, training, and help him be confident - especially around strangers. Max is one of over 100 dogs in a very busy shelter so he needs help being noticed. He is dog-friendly and even passed his cat test.
▫ Maximus is about 3 years old lab/pit mix, appx 60 lbs
▫Playful with other dogs
▫️ Passed his cat test! Max may be able to live with a cat with slow intro
▫️ Max knows lots of commands, he is smart.
▫️ Approved for a home with kids 17+
▫️ Can sometimes be nervous around people, so needs an experienced owner who can give him lots of structure, training, and help him stay comfortable especially around strangers
▫️ A meet and greet at the shelter is REQUIRED with all household members and dogs
