found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, not good with kids, not good with dogs, and good with cats.
Smaller than a bread box, and cute as a bug, Max is also a very intrepid and accepting dog who, despite a complete change in his life situation, has adjusted with remarkable good grace.
Max did not expect to find himself in foster care, nor did he understand what parted him from his former human, but we have done our best to assure him that both he and she will be cared for, and that he need not worry.
Fortunately, although Max appears to be a fragile slip of a thing, he is actually a sturdy, curious, and even occasionally mischievous fellow who is not likely to be vanquished easily. Still, he does require a bit of reassurance and comfort as he navigates an entirely new life style from the one to which he was accustomed, which did not include a multiple dog household, cats, and often, visitors. In fact, he probably would be happier in a quieter setting where he could once again enjoy singular importance.
But we are cheered by his stability, and by his capacity to accept new things.
When Max becomes too stimulated or overwhelmed, he expresses his dismay with a growl, which we respect, especially since growling has replaced his former nipping behavior. This need for creating boundaries and exerting control is expressed less and less by Max, and in its place, we are seeing a dapper, playful, and incredibly endearing little entity emerge. We are proud of this progress.
Max is very responsive, with open and direct eye contact. He is housetrained, non-destructive, and fluent in the commands "come" and "sit".
An extremely tactile dog, Max loves to be held and petted. He rides grandly in a car, and although a bit mistrustful of new people at first, he is quickly befriended. His favorite toy is a squeaky carrot, which he takes everywhere with him.
Max will need continuing gentle guidance and reassurance, and respect for the times when he just needs to go sit quietly and process all the loss and changes he has experienced. But what he has to offer in return is an extraordinary measure of devotion and companionship. He would reward a committed and understanding adopter with a bond of depth, a lifetime of trust, and all the love in his heart.
