Meet Max *F* the Amazing Senior!
We could not say no to this sweet senior, Max, who was owner surrendered to a high kill shelter. H
e is a 17 year old dog who really needs a home to relax for the rest of his life. He is on a few different medications that help his heart, as he has a murmur. He goes out with our other dogs and walks very well on a leash, but he does have a tendency to bark a lot. He also has some vision problems, but it does not seem to bother him. He does not require any treatment for his eyes at this time. He has had a dental procedure done, but still has fistulas on his canine teeth. Our vet feels that it would be too much to put him under anesthesia again. He needs a nice, calm home to relax.
He is available for adoption and is up to date on all shots.
Max knows there is someone out there that would love his company!
Please put an application in for Max and he will show you a special kind of love.
FOSTER UPDATE: Max has quite a personality! He can bark a lot but he also "talks" or vocalizes. It's almost as if he can't help himself, so no apartment living for him! He is a very good boy, listens well and loves to be outside with his people. He has a surprising amount of energy for his age but also takes lots of naps. He loves a nice comfy dog bed! Sometimes he will "nurse" on a fleece blanket, usually at night. We have other dogs, ranging from 5 pounds to over 50 and he does fine but we do separate them all at mealtime and he eats in his crate. He is like a vacuum when he eats, even his pills! I could see him easily becoming overweight, which would put a strain on his heart, so not too many treats! He does have an interest in toads, snakes, etc. so supervision is a must! Max would love to have a comfy home to spend the rest of his life in, with a person who will give him lots of scratches and take him outside to explore. A fenced yard would be perfect. He is not a big fan of car rides so being in a crate would probably be the best solution.
DOG FOR A DAY Outing Report:
"I had Max for the Dog 4 a Day Program on Saturday, July 29 and he is a sweet dog. He only barked occasionally at my house for instance when my daughter was leaving. He wouldn't play with any toys and he didn't want to lay on the couch with us but he did enjoy the 3 short walks we took. He walked well on the leash, staying right beside me and didn't pu
ll at all. In my house my cat was hiding under the couch and Max could tell he was there. He was very fixated on the couch knowing the cat was there. He didn't try to attack the cat even when the cat hissed him. In fact, he didn't even bark at the cat. I think it was just curiosity. You would never know that Max is 17 years old, he seems and acts much younger."
