Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat) : : Male (neutered) : : Adult : : Large
MAX was transferred from a rescue in West Texas to GaDaH. MAX is neutered, rabies, core vaccines, lepto, heartworm and tick disease tested negative, is on monthly flea/tick/heartworm prevention, microchipped and at the time of transfer in May 2020 weighed around 55 pounds. He has an estimated date of birth of 24 August 2015. We have no way of knowing the exact breed, it is up to individuals to decide what breed they think is most likely.
MAX is currently living in a communal area with other small, medium and large sized dogs and puppies and has been doing great. They have a lot of space to run, chase and play and burn off some of the energy that he has. He can be shy when he first meets people, but soon warms up and will snuggle and lean into your body to get lots of love and cuddles.
MAX has access to a large enclosed in area, which is accessed through a dog door. We are not able to say if he is house-trained other than that, so we expect families to be prepared to work on housetraining whilst he transitions to his new home, life and family.
MAX is only an energetic adult who is bursting with energy and so we are looking for an active family that will take him on walks, road trips and adventures so he can enjoy what the world has to offer. As with all new dogs Max does need to be trained and it is beneficial for both him and his new family to do basic training at home, so personalities, body language and mannerisms can be learnt from each other, boundaries and rules set for him. Training classes are encouraged for socialization also. Since being at the rescue Max has not been exposed to cats or livestock so we are unable to say how he would be around them.
All dogs are fed Rachael Ray Nutrish PEAK Natural Dry Dog Food, Grain Free Western Grasslands Recipe with Bison. Rachael Ray Nutrish Peak Dog Food receives the Dog Food Advisor’s second-highest tier rating of 4.5 stars.
Max is available for adoption from Give a Dog a Home, German Shepherd Dog Rescue, located in Sebec, Maine for an adoption fee of $550. Families MUST travel to the rescue in Sebec, Maine for meet and greet at time of adoption
