Maxx adores his people so much that he wants to be with them all the time. In Dogtown, he lives in a kitchen so he can be as close as possible to his caregivers.
Born in 2009, Maxx suffers from separation anxiety and gets nervous during storms. When he is afraid, he has a tendency to try to run away, so he'll need a secure enclosure. He can be pretty picky with his doggie friends, and it's best for him to steer clear of small dogs and cats. Maxx is currently a staff-only dog at the Sanctuary because of an isolated bite incident in the past. He has not shown any aggression before or since. He is looking for an understanding person who is willing to spend lots of time with him and help him feel safe. If you'd like to be there for Maxx, he would love to meet you.
