Max came into the shelter with his owner one morning because they moved into a new residence that does not allow animals. Max was sitting in the shelter sad and lost. You could see it in his eyes like what have I done to be sitting in here now. Although he is a senior, he still have a zest for life. Max is currently in a home with a few other dogs. His foster Mom says she believes that Max was abused. Max is more of an independent dog. He isn't much of a cuddler but does love being in the company of his human. He prefers to be scratched behind his ears as opposed to anywhere else. When he wants to be pet on his back, he will move back and forth near you to cue you that it's okay. One of his favorite things to do is go for walks with his foster family and visit the dog park. He's a cute little fella. Max would be best in a home without any small children. Max is housebroke and crate-trained. His foster Mom says that Max isn't any trouble at all. He's been a complete gentleman ever since he has arrived.

Unless otherwise indicated, all Double Dog Rescue dogs have received the following before being available for adoption:

Thorough veterinary examination

All routine annual vaccinations, including Rabies, DHLPP, Bordatella (kennel cough), Heartworm Test, Fecal Test, Deworming


All dogs are quarantined for two weeks outside of the shelter (puppies four weeks) to ensure they don't break with disease.

VETTING NOTE: Double Dog Rescue completely vets our dogs thoroughly to the best of our knowledge based on communication with our Southern Vets. If anything is brought to our attention, we treat the dog. After adopting the dog, you will be responsible for following up with all vetting going forward.

HEARTWORM NOTE: Dogs who were treated for Heartworm can test positive up to 4-6 months after last treatment. All dogs are immediately put on Heartguard/Ivermectin following the treatment to kill the Heartworm larvae. All dogs should be re-tested after 5-6 months from the last Heartworm treatment.
