Max is a handsome 2 year-old Boxer/Lab mix male who is eager to make a fresh start in a new home. He was living his life on a short chain when his owner decided to surrender him to a shelter. That was good news for Max as he now has the opportunity to live life as a treasured family member. Max is a little shy meeting new people and has a lot of new experiences in front of him as he gets used to life off of a chain. Once he’s comfortable with someone, his inner puppy emerges and he loves to hug and snuggle with his human friends. He has done well with crate-training in his foster home and has been working on his leash skills as well although he has more work in front of him in that area. A harness will make it easier to work with him as he hones his leash manners. Max likes other dogs so would do well in a home with a canine buddy to show him the ropes. He will need a yard with a secure aboveground fence so he doesn’t have to be tied up again. In spite of the sad life he’s led to date, Max is eager to put the past behind him and start enjoying lots of new adventures. With a kind and patient owner, Max is sure to blossom into an outstanding canine companion. Max weighs about 53 pounds and his adoption fee is $250. He’s neutered, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea and tick preventative, and microchipped. As part of the adoption process, all adopters must commit to a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email if you’re interested in Max.
