Max is about 1-1/2 to 2 years old and about 7 lbs. He is an affectionate, sweet boy. He has blossomed in foster care and has overcome most of his initial shyness at meeting new people. Max thrives in the company of other dogs. He has become play pals with a gentle Aussie and is currently in a foster home with two small dogs. Max has met several horses and was also good with them.
He would also do well with younger children as long as they treated him gently. Max absolutely loves his walks! He becomes so excited when he knows that he is going for a walk that he dances on his hind legs (he does the same at meal time!). He has boundless energy while on walks and is well-behaved on the leash.
At home, Max is a calm and happy dog who loves to cuddle. He'll win your heart when he climbs into your lap and takes a nap while you watch TV. He does not seem interested in playing with toys. He does like to sleep with his person at night and sleeps through the night with no problem.
Max would do best in a home with another dog (or dogs) or if his person were with him much of the time. He is a special little guy who deserves a stable and loving long-term home.
Max’s adoption fee is $250. He is being fostered in Martinez, CA.
