My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

NAME:
Maxx

STATS:
Male, Dane Corso/ Mastiff Mix, 1.5 years, 115 lbs.


TEMPERAMENT:
Shy at first and warms up.
Needs seasoned owner to work with issues (see below).
Moderately Active
Initially was told he was fearful of men, which seems to be he just needs slow introductions to new people where he can approach them at his own pace. Warms up quickly to men and women as long as it is done slowly and at his pace. Initially weary of strangers.
SKILLS
Potty trained.
Crate trained.
Older children in a savvy home only (12+)
Has not been exposed to cats.
Has not been exposed to other dogs and ideally looking to place as an only dog at this time.
MORE ABOUT ME:
Likes belly rubs.
Needs patient proactive owner willing to work on behavior (see details below).
Signing up for basic training will be a requirement to adopt.
EXPERIENCED/large breed savvy owners required.
ONE LAST THING:
Maxx is a supersized puppy with lots of attention and love to give to the right family. He is goofy and loves to play, especially with an appropriately sized toy like his JUMBO Jolly-Ball. He loves treats and while he is a little on the shy side at first with new people, he warms up quickly as long as it is done at his pace. After the initial warm up phase, his true personality comes out. There is a playful side to him as well as a lazy lay at your feet side, although sometimes he may mistakenly lay on your feet in his attempt to cuddle :).

Maxx initially had negative reactions when it came to strangers and pretty much everything new to him (including swaying palm trees). With reassurance, positive reinforcement in the form of treats, and looking to his handler for a confidence boost, his triggers have lost power. He will need continued socialization, desensitization, and training. With the right forever home, Maxx will continue to improve. He picks up on things very quickly and is very treat and toy motivated. He does need someone who will be patient with him, but also serve as someone who he can turn to for confidence and stability when he is unsure or frightened of something new for reassurance.
