Isn’t he the cutest Santa Paws helper you’ve ever seen? Our Adoptable Dog of the Week is Maxim, a 4 years old Australian Shepherd mix from Baltimore, Maryland. This adorable pooch is neutered, up to date on his vaccinations, heartworm negative, and microchipped. Maxim gets along with other dogs but needs an adult-only home.

Maxim’s Tale

It’s hard to believe that a cutie pie such as Maxim is not spending the holidays with a furever family of his own! This charming fella is not only a looker, but he also has a wonderful personality. He can be a bit shy once you first meet him, but if you come armed with yummy treats, you’ll have a new best friend in no time! In addition to delicious snacks, Maxim loves going on walks (he’s a dream on a leash!) and getting belly rubs from his hoomans.

Owing to his Australian Shepherd genes, Maxim is quite the smarty pants. He’s well trained and knows basic commands such as sit, down and stay. Also, he’s fully housebroken so there won’t be any potty accidents to worry about. Of course, with a patient new owner and a few treats to coax him, there’s no saying what other fun tricks Maxim could learn!

When it comes to his preferred family setting, Maxim needs a calm, adult-only home, where he’d get to be the pampered baby of the household. He does get along great with other well-mannered pooches, so having a furry roommate could be an option for him. As long as he gets a lot of love from his hoomans, this pooch will be content in his new home.

If you think you have what it takes to make Maxim one lucky pooch, contact Maryland Animal Sanctuary & Rescue Organization for more information on how to adopt him.
