Introducing MAXINE, aka Maxi, a 2-3 year old, 24 pound mixed breed dog who looks like she could be a Belgian Malinois (Shepherd) mixed with a Chihuahua.
This little sweetheart will steal your heart. Initially shy when she meets you once you hold her in your arms she will always want to stay there. Maxi loves to run around the yard and play with her foster mom and the foster dogs, big or small. She is a very sweet and gentle little girl. Maxi is a great little guard dog who will alert you when someone approaches the yard or home. She is completely housebroken and has been fine the 10-11 hours left alone and is also crate trained. She does not like to be crated but will tolerate it. Maxi likes to stand on her two legs in order to lean on you and loves when you bend down to give her a hug and kiss. She is a great dog and her foster mom and dogs love her very much.
Maxi was rescued by A Caring Place - All Breed Dog Rescue when she was out of time at animal control in rural Illinois. Maxi was found running loose as a stray, along with another dog. She appears to have been running loose for a while because she has been initially afraid of most people. Maxine is going to need a special adopter who will give her the time to acclimate and adjust to their household/family, and the love and kindness she didn't receive prior to rescue.
This dog has been examined by a licensed veterinarian, tested for Heartworm Disease as well as tick-born diseases (negative), inoculated against Rabies, Distemper, and Kennel Cough, plus dewormed, spayed, and microchipped. ADOPTION APPLICATIONS are available for online completion and submission through our website's home page - www.acaringplacehs.org
