Max the Magnificent radiates the strength, intelligence, drive and powerful, unstoppable athleticism that is the German Shepherd ideal. With his glowing classic Shepherd looks, Max is an eager, drivey dog who wishes to share his joy in working with his handler. A ball, a Cuz, a tug-- and Max's eyes shine brilliantly with the eager intensity of drive. Muscles upon his muscles in his steely frame, Max launches after the ball-- perhaps too soon, but always with the dazzling power and intensity of a working dog being fulfilled. Max would eagerly thrill to a partnership with a handler who is a strong, natural leader who has experience appreciating and working with an intelligent, powerful drivey Shepherd. "Joy in work, devotion to duty and to master..." Max would bring all these to the table for a strong natural leader with Shepherd experience. Max can hardly wait-- could you be the one?


Max is a young boy, around 2 years old. He was very confused initially, after the loss of his family, but has adjusted well in his foster home. He was thin when he came to us: he has an excellent appetite and has gained quite a bit of weight. Max is powerful and energetic and has A LOT of drive, as a German Shepherd should. He ADORES Cuz balls and can chase them forever. He loves to show of his Cuz ball in the photos. Fetching with two Cuz balls is his favorite game. Max would do best in a home with a fenced-in yard where he can run and a new family that has experience with German Shepherds/working dogs.


Max initially displayed some resource guarding issues but is doing well after training (he was very thin and very hungry). His new family should be willing to continue working on this, if the need were to arise again. Max would like a job to do and a family that will enjoy teaching him new thing and training him. Max is looking for his forever home with a family that will love him forever.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Max, a Baltimore German Shepherd Dog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a German Shepherd Dog for sale in Baltimore, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog dog from a breeder in Baltimore.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Baltimore already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Baltimore breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even German Shepherd Dog breeders who help with German Shepherd Dog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Baltimore paves the way for another one to be saved.
