Max's Info...

I am up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Max's Story...
Covered in fleas and overheated Max was found discarded on the side of the road with his sister Mae. When his rescuers pulled over to gather him in he immediately ran into their laps. After a bath, some meds, and much needed food and water he felt like a new boy!

Max loves to greet people with a quick wag of the tail and puppy hop in his step. He quickly learned a few new commands and loves to be rewarded for his work! While he may still mistake the carpet for the grass or a shoe for a toy, he is making long strides everyday. Max is a natural companion and prefers company. He may cry a bit when he's left alone but is comfortable in his kennel once rewarded for going in. And he keeps it clean (never had an accident inside)! He is a bit shy around new dogs but warmed up quickly to his big foster sister.

Why Max is the dog for you -

He is super smart!
He wants to please and be given direction
He is a friendly, agreeable dog that likes everything!
He has learned three commands so far, and enjoys reinforcing them!
Above all, he is totally loveable!

Max is going to be somebody’s best friend, and he wants that someone to be you! Max is okay with everything you can think of, and simple a joy to be around! You want a dog that loves you and wants to be around you--and Max is that dog!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Max, a Houston Labrador Retriever/Pit Bull Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever/Pit Bull Terrier for sale in Houston, or seeking a Labrador Retriever/Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Houston.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Houston already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Houston breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Labrador Retriever/Pit Bull Terrier breeders who help with Labrador Retriever/Pit Bull Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Houston paves the way for another one to be saved.
