Available Dog. Marley aks Max, STAR # 1349

Marley/Max: Hi, I am a 2 ½-year-old 45 lb. handsome boy who is up for adoption to the right family. My foster mom calls me “Maximus” because I take up a massive amount of her heart. She enjoys the constant cuddling I give her and doesn’t mind that I have very little awareness of personal space when she lays down for a nap (I just want to keep her warm!). Everyone that meets me loves me, and that makes me happy. I love other dogs and enjoy having a dog to play with at home. I am happy sharing toys, and I am happy just being happy. Can you tell I am a happy dog?

From Max’s foster mom: Max is a happy, sweet, smart and energetic red merle with a dash of excitement thrown in. He has been bounced around to a few homes in his life, but Max has been resilient and has enjoyed the ride. He walked into our house and was immediately a part of our pack and adjusted seamlessly into our home. He has amazed us how quickly he settled in, and it was like we have always had him in our home! Max is crate trained, house trained and knows commands (sit, lay down, stay, waiting at doors to come through, etc.). He walks well on a leash for us but loves to look around and smell everything. Max loves being out and about to exploring and would benefit having someone who wants to take him out exploring often. He loves other dogs and has enjoyed trips to the dog park, pet stores, and Starbucks.
Max came into our home on Prozac, and from what we can tell it does keep him from wanting to chew on cardboard and counter surf but even off the medicine we haven’t found him to be too crazy. We have equated him with being an energetic, young Aussie and on or off the Prozac he is a great dog. (For any potential adopters this med is refillable at HEB for $8 a month). We know that that might make potential adopters look away and that is ok, but if you are up for meeting him, you won’t regret it. Our family loves this dog and have told STAR we could easily keep him (that is how great he is!). Since he has been in and out of 3 homes (with no fault of his own), we are looking for his FOURever home.

Max lives in Schertz with his foster family.. If you would like to meet Max, please fill out an application on our website.. or if you have one simply contact us..
