Facts about Maxwell

  • Breed: German Shepherd Dog Mix
  • Color: Black - With Tan, Yellow Or Fawn
  • Age: Puppy
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Male
Maxwell is a happy black and tan male German Shepherd puppy who is about 9 months old. He was a backyard dog so did not get much training but is starting his obedience now. He is getting used to being an indoor dog, and is good in his crate. He likes the male and female GSDs in his foster home and is learning how to get his share of cuddles from his foster parents. Maxwell rides well in a car and likes to play. With a little TLC Maxwell is going to blossom into the wonderful dog he was born to be.

Like all puppies he needs owners who are home enough, and have the time, energy, strength, and patience to guide him through his chewing, digging, and mouthing stages (which can last until they are 2-3 years old), and who will provide regular exercise, socialization and training so he will grow up to be a mannerly adult dog. All puppies bark incessantly, dig, and destroy things if they are left alone for long periods of time, and thus, need to be with owners who do not leave them alone for long hours. Priority will be given to families with experience raising German Shepherd Dog or similar puppies.

If you are interested in meeting/adopting Maxwell, please fill out our adoption questionnaire which you can find at

Maxwell is neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, and comes with a collar, all included in adoption fee.

About Second Chance German Shepherd Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Second Chance German Shepherd Rescue is a non-profit, volunteer-run, foster-based German Shepherd Dog rescue serving the greater Bay Area and Sacramento/Roseville regions of Northern California. Our primary focus is rescuing German Shepherd Dogs from life threatening situations in overcrowded shelters where they are in danger of being put to sleep. We adopt our dogs into loving, responsible permanent homes. German Shepherd Dogs in our care are spayed or neutered, and receive basic veterinary care while they await placement in their permanent homes. We work with area shelters and other rescue groups to develop a network of support for German Shepherd Dogs in need.
