Meet Max (Tampa, FL)

Age: 4 months

Breed: Australian Shepherd (male)

Gets along with: people, dogs

Location: Tampa, FL

Max is a very sweet, cuddly Australian Shepherd puppy who is available for adoption.  He is 4 months old, he weighs 36 pounds, and he has a soft black tri coat and one blue eye!  Max is housebroken, crate-trained, and he has just started learning his basic obedience commands.  His leash walking skills are a work in progress as he will dart back and forth depending on what he sees and hears!  He rides nicely in the car and does best when he can sit close to a human.

Max had very little exposure to the world before he was rescued but he is quickly catching up.  He is quite shy when he meets a new person but as soon as he gets over that first shyness he is your best friend for life.  Max is a high Velcro puppy who wants to be close to his people all the time, soaking up as much cuddle time as he can get!  His approach to meeting new dogs is similar.  He is shy for the first few minutes, and then if the other dog is playful – game on!  Max loves to play and run and wrestle with his dog pals, and he has learned so much about the world from them.  His foster family describes Max as a medium energy puppy with a nice off switch.  He loves to romp and play and be part of everything that is going on in his foster home, but if everyone is relaxing he is too.  He is a “professional” cuddler!  Max has not been exposed to cats.

The ideal family for Max is loving, patient, and ready to welcome a friendly, happy puppy into their lives.  It is also important that his new family is committed to the training and socialization that is needed to make sure that Max grows up to be the best dog ever!  A fenced yard is required, a playful, confident dog pal is important, and any children in the home should be at least 10 years old.  Max is ready to meet his forever family, and if you would like to review our adoption process and complete an application please visit the link below. Ricky is fostered near Tampa, FL.
