Maxter is a 2 year old Rottie/Shepherd mix. He had a rough start in life and just arrived in a foster home after several weeks in a boarding kennel. So far we’ve learned that he is a big, heart-stealing, teddy bear of a dog with a constantly wagging tail. He loves car rides and meeting new people.
In the short time at his foster home, he has shown that he responds to his name, knows sit and shake, quickly learned down, and almost has roll over figured out. He’ll do most anything for a treat, which he takes very nicely. He walks well on leash. He loves, loves, loves to engage the other dogs in the house in play (even the reluctant one) and will sneak up on the bed for a cuddle. He’s enjoying the company and care of the older kids there too. Because of his size and energey level, he'd do best in a forever home with older (over 10) kids who are dog savvy and larger dogs.
Maxter Is NOT good with cats.
If you open your heart and home to this special boy, you’ll be rewarded with a special, loyal friend who will love you forever!
