Poor Max was rescued after his owner moved out of town and left it with her ex. This guy was not very happy with having the dog and 'hated' him which lead to him beating poor Max, ultimately badly injuring his leg. His has a torn ACL that does not need surgery at this time. He is on anti-inflammatory meds and should be well soon. He can still walk but just needs a little more time and sometimes a little help getting onto the bed or couch for snuggles. Max is about 3 years old and he is 66 lbs.
Max is understandingly a shy little guy who is slowly coming out of his shell. He's warming up and already giving kisses. He loves to be right next to you and of course loves belly rubs.
His ideal home is a nice calm environment, at least for now, as he is still a little timid and sometimes loud noises startle him slightly. Lots of love and rubs. A decent size yard, or a few walks a day in an apartment. His back leg is still hurt so stairs would be an issue till it's healed. He doesn't chew so he can be left alone out of a crate.
Max would love a home where he will never be hurt again. Can you give him that?
