My story

Animal Profile: Max is an estimated 1-year-old male Terrier/Chihuahua mix that joined us from California. He was surrendered to our rescue partner by his owners.

 Update: Meet Max! He has come out of his shell in foster care and is showing us his
sweet, affectionate, and very playful side. Max is crate trained, has good house manners, and
knows all his basics like “yes, come, sit, down, place, focus”. He is very motivated and will do
almost anything for a treat! He also loves a good chew toy, which he’ll work on for hours, then
take a nap.Max is being fostered with a larger breed pup and the two of them get along great -- Max loves romping with his canine buddy and he benefits from having a confident dog to take the lead from. They’ve been on long hikes in the woods together and Max easily keeps up. He loves to play and explore in the yard, and does zoomies so fast he looks like a mini greyhound!

Max’s biggest hurdle is his fear of new things. Strange people, places, and especially dogs, all
scare him, and he reacts by barking at them as his way of trying to get them to "go away".  His foster has been taking him to training sessions with other dogs and has seen quite a lot of progress in his ability to work through his fear and be calm. With people he sometimes barks at first, but then settles down and is able to co-exist peacefully. He’s fine with loud noises though, like fireworks and city sounds.

Max will need a patient, experienced adopter who is comfortable working with him as he
transitions to a new home. He’s 100% willing to experience new things, he just needs someone
committed to helping him slowly build his confidence. He does best with leadership and someone who can advocate for him. He will need another canine companion, and would not be a good candidate for a home with young kids.

Adoption Info: Adoption fee is $500, which includes spay/neuter, current rabies/DAPPV/bordetella vaccinations, microchip, health certificate, and heartworm test. All adoption fees are donations to a Washington non-profit corporation and all donations go to benefit the animals in our rescue.
