Max was rescued from the Wildomar Shelter where he was owner surrendered...he was scared and a little shy and had terribly rotten teeth.  After we rescued him, we did a full anesthetic dental and fully vetted Max.  He has beautiful teeth now and uses them like a shark when you give him a treat!  (we're working on that ;)  The shelter thought max was only about 10, but after researching his existing microchip, we found out that he had been microchipped back in 2002!  And that's assuming he was a puppy then.  For his age, you would never guess he was that old.  Max "runs" about and follows you everywhere.  There is no way you can get through a door without him there right next to you.  His tail is ALWAYS going as well.  Max has one of the sweetest temperaments I've seen with other dogs.  He doesn't like to have his head or mouth restrained, but I believe that's from previous bad experiences.  He loves to lay next to your bed on a pillow or dog bed and he's fully house-trained.  Max is just a wonderful little soul and if we didn't have to place him to help others, we would keep him in a heartbeat.  He's just a really special soul.  Max is up to date on all vaccinations (including Rabies), microchipped and neutered and has had his full dental and blood work.  His blood work did reveal that he might be in the beginning stages of kidney disease; however, we have had him on a special kidney diet that you can make at home since we got the results back.  He has no symptoms of kidney failure at this time and we hope to keep it that way.  For more information, please call (951) 609-0765 or email us at greendogfoundation@gmail.com.

Our Adoption Process...

Adult dogs require a $300 adoption fee. This covers their spay or neuter, vaccinations (including Rabies), and microchipping as well as anything else that the dog may need to bring him or her to the healthiest state possible before adoption (i.e. dental cleaning, tumor removal, rounds of antibiotics, etc.)
