ON hold - Adoption Pending
Located - Wellard 6170 WA
Not available for interstate adoption.
As Max settled into his foster home over the last 5 weeks he has gone from being scared of other dogs to starting to be too assertive. We might be able to put Max into a home with another dog. He would love a playmate. But his new owner will need to help him settle in and be more social. The transition will need someone who knows what thy are doing..
Preference will be given to a home where he is an only dog.
He will not suit a loud, chaotic household and does not really like rough play. If you have kids we recommend they be teenagers and older and only if gentle and calm around animals.
Max loves short strolls or playtime at home. He loves the ball thrown for him and plays with squeaky toys.

Will stay close by and come when called.
Nuisance barker or destructive.
Max will alert you to something strange about or if he hears another dog. He loves to be with you and if you lock him away from the family he will scratch on the door wanting to be let in.
Tolerance to being alone.
Max does not like being alone for long periods of time. Like many little dogs he will bark when you initially leave too.
Max is people orientated and thrives on plenty of attention. He loves cuddles, pats and treats. Max is a lap dog and will ask you to pick him up (he doesn’t like to jump up) so he can sit with you. Travelling in the car is also a favourite.
Max is frightened of other dogs and wary when meeting strangers. He also seems to dislike walking in long grass.
Max would be best as an only dog and with an owner who wants a companion. He will not suit homes with very young or frail people. Active seniors would be perfect. He would really love at least a small amount of yard to explore which is also secure. Max can become overwhelmed by chaos or threats including dogs, cats or loud people. Max is a playful boy but also an old soul.
Tragically, Max has recently lost his human dad – the two were inseparable and fairly isolated from the out-side world. Max has always been rather timid and reserved so moving to several homes in the last few weeks has made Max a little unsure and anxious. But he is making progress in the last 2 weeks now he has a routine with his foster family. Max is a very sweet natured, affectionate dog and needs the return of a quiet routine with someone who loves him unconditionally.
