Meet MAX! MAX has a BIG personality and will needs an owner who can help allow all his best qualities shine! He’s medium-high energy and will need at least one good walk per day along with mental exercise. MAX needs help learning how to calm down on walks and in the home, he gets soooooo excited on walk and can get vocal, lunge and whine but it's stemming from frustration, overstimulation and excitement. He LOVES being social and the leash limits that! He needs a owner who will lead him into a better walking mindset. MAX can be pushy so will need someone who won’t give in to his beautiful puppy dog eyes. He is VERY smart which can work for or against you. He knows all his basic commands plus a couple extra but would still like to continue training to learn even more. He can get easily overexcited and is looking for good guidance versus things like "baby talk" that just amp him up. He's looking for someone to be his advocate and is willing to dedicate time to continued training/stimulation and will only allow people to meet him if they follow instructions. He is very affectionate with humans. He gets anxious when he's left home alone and not crated, crate training is essential with MAX since it helps him calm down. MAX loves his crate and will often go in there throughout the day for naps and has no issue going in there at night. He is incredibly dog social, he enjoys life in foster with a pack of 12 and has helped other dogs learn better social skills. He's very playful with dogs, listens to signals well and adjusts his play to the size of the dog. He hasn’t been tested with cats. MAX has spent most of his life with children but needs a dog-friendly family who all understand his cues! MAX will absolutely shine in the right home. He would LOVE a place outside of the city! If that’s you fill out an application to adopt now!
