After a short time in a caring foster home, Max is like a new dog. His foster dad says, “Max is a completely different pup… we call him wiggle butt because when he wags his tail in glee his whole body moves like a shark.”
Max is happy, loves his toys and food, and is an awesome watchdog. No hearing aid need here. Max hears an unfamiliar sound in the night or someone comes to the front door, he’s on top it – but not to a fault.
He may be a senior, but he’s not ready for retirement any time soon. Max is active and playful. He still has plenty of vim and vigor left in him. He enjoys going for walks and palling around with his foster sibling. So far his favorite things are chewing on a big bone and exploring his temporary home looking for cozy spots to snuggle up in. His foster dad says, “He seems like he may have been crate trained since he finds places in our house and makes them his hiding places. They’re always in corners near beds.”
Max is skittish; he doesn’t like loud noises or fast movements. He cowers a lot, but his foster family is working with him. They’ve noticed in the short time he’s been with them that Max is getting braver and trying new things. See, you can teach an old dog new tricks!
Max will melt your heart. His big brown eyes are saying, “Can you be my forever family?” Max needs a loving home with a family willing to give him the attention he deserves. Could that be you?
