Max's Info...

Max's Story...
Hi, I’m Max! I’m adorable (just look at my photos) and I’m around 3 or 4 years old and weigh 8lbs. They think I might be a mix of Yorkie and Maltese or Pomeranian but not sure. I am Heart Worm Positive, but that alright because brighter days has me on a treatment plan, so all I need to do is stick with it and in just a few short months I will be 100% healthy again!...stupid TX mosquitos!
I traveled to Colorado from Houston about 3 weeks ago. Voted ‘Mr. Personality’ back at the shelter. I am funny, like to entertain, have lots of energy, love to give kisses, and love going for walks. I also enjoy entertaining myself if you provide a couple of toys! By the way, my coat is growing out so I should be a little fluffier soon!

I would love to be adopted by someone with a fenced back yard and looking for a young adult dog. Just think, you won’t have to go through the puppy stages of whining and chewing furniture. I rarely bark except for when my next door neighbor’s dog is outside. We like to do a little doggie-talk. I am also 90% potty-trained (outside potty) and love to “sit and stay” when you offer treats. Because of my high IQ, I should be easy to train for other commands. I would be great with kids or with just loving adults. I think the best way to play is with my mouth, which I am learning is not always the best. Sometimes I just get so excited I nipple on everything and everybody to say hi. Because of this older kids would probably be best, it's all in good fun, but may be too much for young kids.

I do have long springy legs, so I would LOVE to go for hikes in the CO mountains, I hear they are a blast to adventure and I am sure I could hold my own going up a down, even with my little size! I also have a ton of energy so it would be great to get my energy out daily.

Having been recently adopted by a very nice older lady, she is having to make several trips out-of-state due to a family illness and thinks boarding me or leaving me with a stranger would not be fair. I have a microchip, booster shots, deworming, and neutered and can provide my medical records if you’d like. I would make a GREAT Christmas gift!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Max, a Boulder Maltese/Pomeranian dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Maltese/Pomeranian for sale in Boulder, or seeking a Maltese/Pomeranian dog from a breeder in Boulder.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Boulder already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Boulder breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Maltese/Pomeranian breeders who help with Maltese/Pomeranian rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Boulder paves the way for another one to be saved.
