Hello, my name is Max, people call me Maximus or Maximillian. As long as you give me
some love I’ll answer to all of them. I’m about a year and a half old, 40 pound male lab mix so still a puppy.
I came to Michigan on my own, no playmates came with me, but my foster brother
immediately wanted to be my friend. It took me a couple days to realize he wanted to
play, but since then we play all the time. I got to meet two foster cousins and play with
them too. One of them doesn’t usually like other dogs, but she likes me. I am super
special. I love to watch the squirrels in the trees in the back yard. I enjoy being outside
as much as possible, sometimes I just don’t want to come back in yet.
I still have a few accidents here and there in the house, but I found out it’s no fun to go
potty in my crate. I sleep in a crate every night. At first I didn’t want to have anything to
do with it, but now I know I get to sleep in peace and get a treat every night for being a
good boy and going in. I am a very smart boy and if you want to take the time, I will learn
all the tricks. My foster family believes I would make a great service dog, or emotional
I take my treats very gently, but I do like to take my time eating it so I’ll bring it into the
other room before I start eating. I haven’t quite figured out why my foster mom asks me
to sit down to get the treat, but my foster brother does. At first you may want to make
sure I have a private safe place to eat my meals if I’m going to have a new brother or
sister. I am protective of my food when I first arrive. However, if you want some of my
food you can have it.
Kids are okay, but it takes me a little bit of time to warm up to them. I can be shy at
times. Please don’t just reach out to touch the top of my head, let me sniff your hand
and you can scratch my chin first. I love to get rub downs all over my body, but be
aware, my fur likes to find a new place to lay on the floor. I like to nibble on your fingers,
toes, and arms to get your attention. I don’t mean to hurt you.
I love resting my head and paws on my foster moms leg when I lay on the sofa with her.
It’s kind of like having a pillow. I grabbed an extra blanket for my crate the first day so I
could have a pillow to sleep on. Will you be my pillow, I’ll love you forever. My adoption fee is $300.00.

interested in adopting?
The first step is for you to fill out an adoption application. In order to meet and greet available dogs, we must receive a completed application. Approval for adoption requires a successful home visit and veterinary reference. Applying to adopt and meeting a potential dog does not obligate you to adopt the dog you meet and greet. If it is not a match for you or them, adoption will not take place.
