Help Max Find a Home
Monday, 03 February 2014

Max is a sweet and affectionate dog who loves to be petted and loves to cuddle. He is a good listener, very alert, especially when the conversation is accompanied by a good neck rub.

He does not seem interested in chewing things around the house, according to his current foster mom. He just likes to hang out with his people.


He loves playing ball; his catching skills aren’t great, but he has proved to be a quick learner.


He knows how to shake hands, knows “where’s your ball?” and is about half-trained to sit. He thinks little dogs are a novelty but barks at big dogs. He needs further training to not bark at strange people and big dogs.


Max is 7 years old, neutered, weighs 85 pounds and needs to gain 10 more. He has a very handsome, classic German Shepherd appearance. He is housebroken. He needs lots of exercise and is always ready for some fun. He loves the outdoors and likes to hang outdoors.


Max was found behind a business near Bachman Lake before Thanksgiving having been abandoned and starving. The business people rescued him, fed him and petted him. He stayed even though he could have run anywhere around Dallas. He was hit by a car during the time he was abandoned; his right rear leg was broken. On Jan. 2, the vet said it was healing properly by itself. He holds that leg in the air when he stands but puts weight on it to run, walk and jump around. He walks with a limp and probably always will.


He is a strong dog, never flinches with rough cuddling and silly play. He brought a wonderful atmosphere of calm to the house with his strong personality.


He needs a new home with a big back yard or a neighborhood for long walks. He will be a wonderful dog for someone.


If you can provide a temporary or permanent home for Max, contact the shelter through This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . He was rescued by one of our volunteers and is in a foster home, so we need to set an appointment if you wish to meet him.
