Male Pit bull mix Approx 1 year old Good with dogs Good with kids NO CATS PlEASE! Max was taken in by a Good Samaritan in Hartford after he found himself homeless and in very bad shape. He had demodectic mange and a raging ear infection. She has been taking care of him since the summer while we got him the medical attention he required. She's done a GREAT job with him. She has taught him his basic commands and has done everything our vet needed her to do to ensure a successful recovery. When we met her and Max at the vet recently we couldn't believe how wonderful he looked! He has now been cleared for neuter on 12/8. Max's caretaker is not supposed to have Max where she lives as there is a one dog limit, but thankfully her landlord has been very understanding allowing her to care for him until we can find a new foster home or an adopter. Max is about a year old and he is great with kids and dogs, he is NOT a fan of cats. If you are interested in fostering or adopting Max please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. He cannot be adopted until he is neutered but there is an option to "foster-to-adopt". Email us to learn more!
