Adoption fee $400
Location: Houston area
My name is Maximus, but my friends call me Max. I have lived my young life in a home filled with love and a family who took excellent care of me, but due to their very busy work schedules which kept them away from home for extended hours everyday I was tearfully surrendered to SMRS. You see this is how much my owner loved me, they put my best interests first. I am now ready to search for my new forever home.
I am a healthy, young, loving boy who is potty trained, crate trained, no anxiety and I am not destructive. In addition to being downright handsome I am happy to tell you that I am good with all the numerous dogs in my foster home and I am even gentle enough for small size dogs and senior dogs too. I am good with children over 12 and I have even been cat tested and had a very positive, friendly attitude when meeting the fluffy tailed fur-friend. I would love a home with someone who doesn't work long hours and my hopes are high that SMRS can find that special someone for me.
A few words from my foster mom, she says I am perfect and a true joy to have in her home, no accidents, no barking and I sleep in my kennel at night without a peep. I would also be happy to be your bedtime snuggle buddy too! My days are spent playing, napping and socializing with my foster brothers and sisters and in the evening I am a lap warmer deluxe which will come in handy with the winter season on the horizon.
Are you ready to win the doggie lotto? If so, grab that adoption application and fill it out today. I promise...I am all you have ever dreamed of!
Update: Max had a bite incident in his adoptive home and was returned. We do not have all the facts, but since this was reported we will not place him in a home with young children.
