Max’s owners had three dogs, including Max, and made the decision to rehome two of the dogs with the intention of then being able to provide a good life to one dog, Max. Unfortunately, with a one-year old child, another baby expected, and work, the couple is not in a position to provide Max with the attention and care that they would like him to have. Therefore, Max, who is four-years old and weighs approximately twenty pounds, is in need of a new home. His current owners have requested that an adoptive home have a fenced yard and the companionship of another small dog; a retired or work-at-home adopter without a resident dog would also be considered.
When left alone, Max is accustomed to staying in a “dog” room, but is also crate trained. Regarding housetraining, he is housetrained to potty outside and has also used doggy pee pads (if used, he might need a refresher course on the doggy pee pads!). Some housetraining accidents do occur and Italian Greyhound Place will be glad to provide housetraining information. Max is not accustomed to a leash (has never been walked on one) and will need to be acclimated to loose-leash walking and, if desired, information on this will be provided. Max travels nicely by car.
Although he enjoys being active, Max is also very affectionate and enjoys cuddling with his people. He has lived with two other dogs and a young child, but has not been exposed to cats or many other dogs.
If you are interested in welcoming Max to your home, please contact Italian Greyhound Place.
