Max is a 1 year old friendly, energetic male. He’s full of energy and loves life.
Max was an emotional purchase by an older couple after the passing of their 13 year old GSD mix and a death in their family. They soon realized that Max was too active and large for their age. They didn’t feel they could give him the exercise and fulfillment a young German Shepherd needed. They loved him dearly and wanted to find him the best home so contacted us for rehoming help. There wasn’t any urgency as they were more concerned that he go to the right home.
We didn’t have any foster homes available at that time so he stayed with them for several more months. In the meantime, we heard from 2 time previous adopters that their male had passed away after a long and happy life. They submitted an application asking us to look for a dog for them but weren’t in any hurry. When we were reviewing Max’s evaluation, we had a sneaking suspicion that he may be a good fit for them so we asked if they would be willing to foster him. We were thrilled when they said yes.
In only a matter of days we were hearing wonderful things about Max. He was settling in nicely once he got over his fear of their stairs. He needed some additional training, but our experienced couple was working on that. They said it felt like he had always been there and they knew he was home. After a period of foster time, they asked us if they could formally adopt him and we couldn’t have been happier to say yes! Welcome home Max!
