Adoptable Dog of the Week- Max

Do you dream of a companion who will never be too tired for playing or long walks? Our Adoptable Dog of the Week is Max, a 5 years old Shepherd mix from Oakville, Washington. He is neutered, current on his vaccinations, and housetrained. The Magnificent Max, as his rescuers lovingly call him, needs an adult only home- he gets along with other dogs, though.

Max’s Tale

It’s been too long since Max came into the shelter! This puppy “trapped” inside of the body of an adult dog just haven’t been so lucky as to meet his purrfect hooman yet. He is very energetic and goofy- 80+ lbs of pure puppy love that can knock you over for a snuggle! Kidding aside, despite being a big boy, Max is not ruff- he’s tolerant and kind. He loves his family and wants to be close to them as much as possible.

However, the Magnificent Max is not a good match for busy pawrents that live in a condo. He needs an experienced adopter who could help him burn off his excess energy in a productive way. Max requires plenty of room to run around and play, ideally with an active owner that would take him on hikes or play fetch in a big backyard.

Max is housetrained, but still needs a bit of work to be the “goodest” boy of al- for instance, he’s a bit too vocal for some people, and can be too excited on a leash. Nothing a little love and patience can’t fix! In fact, Max is quite smart and a quick learner too, and with his energy levels in the mix, his rescuers think he would be a perfect candidate for dog sports. He is not a good match for families with young kids owing to his size and excitability but would do well in a family that already has a dog of similar size that wouldn’t mind Max’s puppy-like energy.

If you think Max sounds like a perfect canine companion for you, contact Misspits Rescue for more information.
