Meet Max

Upon bringing Max home a month ago, he was extremely timid and would roll over in submission when anyone came near him. He is slowly coming round with lots of love, patience and human interaction. Max gets very excited when we come home and tends to be a bit mouthy until the he settles again. Although he doesn't hurt, he will need ongoing training to break him of this habit. He is a VERY affectionate boy and loves to snuggle into a neck for cuddles. Max has been desexed and is ready to go to his forever home now. Max is doggy door trained and fully house trained. He is fine in the car and travels well. He will need ongoing leash training as he don't appear to have been walked on a leash at all in the past. Max is better suited to an older home or a home where there are no very young children. Max is located at North Nowra

Max was adopted on 07 February 2011 after 3 months in foster care
