Meet Max, a 3 year old good looking guy! He's a large boy with energy to go on outings, walks or runs and play ball. Max needs a home where he gets daily exercise with an owner who enjoys spending time with him.
Max is house and crate trained but he'd really prefer an owner who enjoys him being by his side during the day. He knows many commands and is eager to please with positive reinforcement.
He needs work on self control when people knock on the door but this is a natural, protective trait in a German Shepherd dog. This means he does need an experienced handler to make sure Max knows he's not in charge.

Ideally an only dog
Medium Energy Level
Max is a gentle, sweet dog who likes tummy rubs and training. He does have some separation anxiety when his owners are out of sight.
Unfortunately, it is in the family’s and Max’s best interest to re-home Max because they do not feel they have enough time or experience to help him be the best dog he can be.
The ideal home for Max would have someone home most of the day to enjoy this very attentive and protective dog as their constant companion. Remember every dog needs daily exercise, patience and love.
Apply if you think you could meet Max's needs and provide him a forever home.
