My story

If you are looking for a playful older dog, Max is your boy. Max is a nine year old Labrador mix looking for a home for napping, spending some time outside, or just playing with his tennis balls. Max has shown his appreciation for water even in just a doggy pool but also enjoys water in nature.

Max's human cannot run out of tennis balls! He prefers to have two in his mouth with one between the paws. That is his doggy heaven. He will also play tug of war and keep away. He is a good fetcher. Sometimes he is ready for another throw and other times Max will drop it for you.

Max is looking for a home where he can get some activity but a nice place to enjoy the indoor weather, too. As a black dog, Max would appreciate a back yard pool. Apartment living would also be a good choice since Mac does sleep the day away while his humans away. Max’s foster works from home and reports Max is an easy going dog who does not interrupt her day but also knows when it is time for a break and when the clock says 5:00pm.

Additional adoption info

Many of our rescued dogs have a history of behavior issues and were in danger of being killed for behavior in a pound or shelter. We take the time to evaluate and provide any needed training before adopting out our dogs, and we're looking for safe, loving homes.
