MAXY IS NOT YET AVALIBLE TO REHOME DUE TO CURRENT COVID RESTRICTIONS.
HOWEVER IF ARE INTRESTED IN HIM PLEASE SUBMIT AN APPLICATION FORM TO [email protected]
Say hello to Maxy! He came into us as he was being left in a yard for extended periods of time. He is a handsome 9 year old crossbreed looking to steal your heart and find his forever home.
Maxy is a larger than life cuddle monster who will make an amazing companion. He loves nothing more than your company, fuss and food! However, he is under socialised with other dogs and can become frustrated when near causing him to bark and pull. He is ok at a distance but will still bark and jump if not distracted/removed from the situation quick enough. Having said this, his attention when out on walks is improving as well as making progress on his muzzle training so he is behaving better when in these situations now. He has also now made a friend at the centre who he adores so we know he can do it!
Due to this, we are looking for experienced dog owners who live in an area that doesn't have many dogs nearby as he would need to be walked in areas where he won't encounter many other dogs. This means he can relax more and enjoy his walks. He will also need assitance from a trainer to build his basic training alongside his handler focus and muzzle training as we are unsure if he's ever been in a home environment before. As Maxy can find meeting other dogs a little overwhelming, we advise not to go to group training sessions as he can find this too much, but we can advise more when going through the adoption process.
Maxy is also showing signs of arthritis but please don't let this fool you! He loves to run and play on his walks every day and doesn't let it slow him down. He is currently on pain medications which he is responding brilliantly to. We will discuss his meds with you further prior to adoption.
He can live with children aged around 10 but no other dogs or any cats please. If you think you have Maxy's forever home hidden away, please email in your perfect match form. We can also answer any further questions you may have.
