Rhodesian Ridgeback

Male, Young
Mesquite, TX
(when grown) Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
Spayed or Neutered,
Meet Maximo, surrendered to the Mesquite Animal Shelter on 2/8. Reasons stated for the surrender were that the dog is not house trained and that there is an autistic child in the home and it wasn't working out. Max weighs 47 pounds and is neutered. He was adopted at 4 months of age at another area shelter and brought to the Mesquite shelter on 2/8 at 8 months of age. My Dog Scanner app suggests the following in his breed mix: Rhodesian Ridgeback, Black Mouth Cur and Boxer. Owner stated that Max has not lived with dogs or cats. Also stated that he lived both indoors and outdoors. He is very high-spirited and lively. He jumps constantly on you. It is obvious his owner has provided no obedience or manners training. This is something Maximo needs just like any other puppy. He is friendly, and is fine with being petted and loved on. He does not seem to know any commands. He does like treats and takes them nicely. He walks OK on a leash. Until Max receives the manners training he needs, he would not seem well-suited for a family with preschoolers. Please give Maximo the second chance he deserves in a home in which he will receive the daily exercise, playtime, enrichment, and training he needs. Oh and Maximo has made it clear that he does not want to live as an outdoors dog. He wants to be an important and cherished family member. He has so much potential to be a devoted pet but needs patience and an investment of time and effort.
