Max can be curious and likes to check out things. He does not let his size or say, a table, stop him. One day while I was cleaning house I had Max, and his foster brother and sister, out on the closed in porch with plenty of toys and bones to keep them entertained. But Max, being curious and true to cattle dog behavior (for example, wants to be with his person), got up on a kitchen table and looked in the window to see where I was and what I was doing. Yep, he was peeping.
Max loves to run and does OK on a leash, but he does want to chase anything that moves. He does not hesitate to break into a run when he sees a rabbit, squirrel, turkey, deer, etc... If it’s moving, he wants to go, so either a fenced in yard or strong arms and shoulders are recommended. And NO CATS. Max would probably not even be up for adoption if not for his aggression towards cats. He is relentless in his pursuit of my cat and will not give up the chase until she is under the gate and down the steps to safety.
Max knows some basic commands, such as sit, and he will chase after a ball, but the bringing it back to you part is not his style. He loves to be brushed and sits nicely for it. I have been working with Max on jumping up on people, but it has been slow going. So, with that behavior and his strong chase instinct, a household without small children is required.
Max is just this big, loving, curious, fun-loving dog who will make you laugh. He really is a sweetheart.
Max is housebroken, neutered, up to date on vaccines and current on heartworm and flea and tick prevention. He is living with his foster Mom and family near Pittsburgh, PA. For questions on Max, please email email@example.com.
