January 2021-- Maxx is a people-lover! He's VERY strong and loves to play. He is kennel trained and does not soil his inside run. He will sit on command (if you have food) and has learned "stay" for his Kong with some kibble in it. He's figured out he needs to watch the human and not the treat. Good boy! He's settled down SOME as a senior dog (10 yrs old) but still has plenty of energy, and plenty of exercise will keep him more settled. He's developed arthritis in his lower back and has been stiff and painful of a morning during cold weather, despite pain medication and a heat pad under his bedding. He's had laser treatments and injections of Adequan in the past and is on joint supplements. This winter he's not been affected by the arthritis for some reason- yay, Maxx! He gets along well with multiple dogs here. Please, NO cats, rabbits, squirrels, other small animals, birds, snakes, or garden hoses! He has a very strong prey drive. He also has a thing about water, like some dogs do-- he wants to catch it (we think) -- from the hose, or as it drips off the roof. He's been known to zip through a group of people and snatch a mitten off a hand, slick as a whistle..... He was originally brought to Friends for Life in November 2011 when he was 10 months old when his humans had to move and couldn't keep him. Maxx will add lots of life to YOUR life! Background check, veterinary reference and 3 personal references required. If you would like to sponsor Maxx, we need sponsors!
