MAX was saved from a shelter in Texas. He is neutered, rabies, core vaccines, de-wormed, heart-worm and tick disease (SNAP 3DX) tested negative and micro-chipped. He has been estimated date of birth of 5 May 2017 and weighs around 8 pounds. MAX has been listed as a chihuahua / dachshund mix, however, I think he is more of a chi/miniature pinscher mix. We have no way of knowing the true breed, it is up to you to decide what you think his breed/s is
MAX would love a family that is active and can take him on long walks, hikes and adventures. He rides great in the car and has been friendly with everyone he has met so far and loves to snuggle on your lap. He would benefit with play dates with other dogs and would love to meet lots of new people. He loves to run and chase with the other dogs and loves to play with toys or chew on the hooves. We do not have cats at the rescue so cannot comment on how he would act around them.
MAX is located in our kennel building and uses the extreme weather dog door to get in and out of her run. He has not had any accidents in the kennel. MAX, as with all rescue dogs are in need of basic and advanced training and we recommend that families spend time with him working on basic obedience and manners, this helps to set boundaries, expectations and allows both MAX and his humans to learn more about each others personality and body language.
MAX would benefit from a family familiar with small breed dogs and their habits and traits. He is a small boy, but high energy and would love to go on lots of adventures to explore the sights, sounds and smells the world has to offer.
MAX is available for adoption through Give a Dog a Home, German Shepherd Dog Rescue for an adoption fee of $500.
This fee is not negotiable and is used to cover the rescue costs of pulling, vetting, health certificate, transport from Texas to Maine, monthly preventatives, supplements, food and anything else that is needed.
