MAX – Shepherd Mix / 2 years / 21 kg / M-Neutered
Everyone’s favourite dog, Max, is still looking for his forever home! He is getting a ton of apps, but we are only reviewing apps where his requirements are met.
Max is a kind, sweet fellow who is learning to trust. This shy guy has a retiring nature and is hesitant around new things, but when he warms up he wants to be where his people are and will be your best friend & a restful companion. He LOVES dips in his mini pool, exploring the gardens, and enjoys a good roll in the grass.
Max is housebroken (bonus!), rides well in the car, and walks nicely on leash. This gentle soul loves to go for relaxing walks, savouring the scents of his new surroundings, though he is cautious of big groups. Max prefers quiet introductions when meeting other dogs. He likes a game of chase and plays gently with stuffed toys. He’s crate trained but he’s happy curled up in a dog bed as well.
We had been told he was blind, but the vet confirmed he is not; he can certainly see, perhaps he is a bit near sighted.
Max is looking for a caring home with a secure yard, consistent loving, and a dog pal to show him the ropes and help him blossom as a new Canadian (cats are ok, too). He is wary of loud noises, so calm, older children would be best for this guy.
