I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
For those who doesn't know me, I had lived my whole life on chain. Yep, I WAS a chained dog. There is a story behind all of this but now let's talk about today and the future. I am currently being treated for my nasty heartworms. So I am not yet available but the foundation is taking in applications. When I am ready, I will just amaze you, you would not believe I was a chained dog. I am the most friendliest, kindest, sweetest and loving soul you will ever meet! My foster family has other pets in the house and I do great around them. Cats and dogs. I also love kids at any ages. I am house trained and crate trained to your surprise because you wouldn't think a chained dog would be. I want to go out and explore the world. My foster mom thinks I deserve to travel and check out new things. SO will my big blocky head fit kindly and gentle on your chest for me to lay on? I am gentle Max with a big heart to give that I never gave before. Can you give me my home? Are you my family? I think so!! So what are you waiting for? Go fill out that application!! I will be waiting for you!
