According to his foster mom Maxx is a sweetheart! A very loving and playful boy. ! He is quite the lap dog and enjoys napping next toy you while you sit on the couch. He’ll even try to climb into a chair to be next to you. He loves to play tug of war with a rope toy and enjoys chasing sticks you throw and chewing on them! He is very food motivated and enjoys treats. Maxx is pretty quiet and rarely barks; he does whine softly when he needs to go outside. He is very calm about having a bath.
Maxx is crate trained and housebroken and walks nicely on leash. He enjoys meeting new people likes the company of other dogs. He can get very excited when playing and just needs to be reminded to calm down. Maxx is still learning proper manners and commands and will sometimes just up in excitement or quickly snatch a treat but his foster family is working on correcting these behaviors.
The perfect forever family for Maxx is one that has the time and energy to continue his training. Doggie siblings of similar energy and play style welcome. Children middle school age or older.
