Hi, my name is Max! I was rescued from a local humane society. I have some fearful tendencies that cause me to get upset, but I’m just trying to protect myself because I’m scared. I haven’t had a very stable life up till now so I growl if I feel threatened. My foster mom says that with the right family and maybe a little bit of training, I’ll feel more comfortable and less like I need to protect myself.
I really need a home with just adults or older, respectful children. If you have had other doxies in the past, well that’s a huge plus because I certainly exhibit lots of common doxie personality traits! I do like to cuddle, but I don’t love being picked up all that much. I would love a forever home where my new family is patient with me and respects my space, but also keeps me in line! I respond very well to a strong pack leader—in fact, my foster mom is shocked at how obedient I am! I come when called (most of the time), I sit, I get down when she tells me to, I take treats real gently, and in general, I aim to please! I respond well to firm commands but I get really scared if you yell at me or invade my space when I know you’re upset with me. Did I mention that I’m potty trained? What more could you ask for?!
I’d probably be happier as an only dog, but my foster mom thinks I would do okay with proper introduction/supervision as long as the other dogs in the household aren’t alpha. I don’t usually start things, but I won’t back down if someone else provokes me. I do pretty well with cats though, I just ignore them.
I also love burrowing (I am a doxie after all), and I adore squeaky toys. In fact, I might just squeak them until you make me stop. Then I’ll just roll around on the toy instead, I am a happy little guy and I am content to play all by myself!
If you would like to know a bit more about me, please contact my foster mom, Diane, at aadrpresident
=============== Information for all dogs/adopters ==============
If you have questions about this dog please feel free to contact the foster home at the email address listed above. They have the most up-to-date information concerning the dog and would be happy to answer any questions about the animal.
We welcome out of state and Canadian adoptions, but we will not ship any dog via cargo. You will have to make arrangements to pick up the dog or for them to go by ground transport. If you choose transporting by either volunteers through our organization or by paid transporter, there will be an additional $45 Fee added for the required Health Certificate.
We will not adopt into the state of CT, RI or MA due to strict laws regarding importation of dogs into those states. If you have an issue with this, you need to take this up with your legislatures.
We are now approved to adopt/foster in the state of NH but adopters will have to pay health certificate fee of $45.00 once to get the dog to our quarantine facility and another $50.00 fee to get the dog out of quarantine after two days.
To understand the adoption process through AADR, please visit the Adoption Information. Transportation options are outlined on that page in Step 3.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST IN A RESCUE.
Please don't let the distance stand in your way of finding your newest best friend. We have volunteers that will help your 'new friend' get up and down the East Coast or up and down the West Coast. We just can't get them from one Coast to the other but some day we hope to have enough volunteers to do that as well. For now, please look for dogs on your coast.
