Max is a clever, active and sweet young man who is looking for his forever home! Max is very human focused and happy as long as he is with you. Max loves car-rides and is well-behaved in the car, he also enjoys a good walk. Max is crate trained and sleeps in his crate in the evening. 

Max’s former owner states that he has grown up around children and fairly used to them. 

In terms of other dogs, Max does not appreciate hyper or high-energy dogs. He would be best suited as an only dog. Perhaps a friend to an older dog. Max is very eager and willing to please, he knows “sit” and his new owner could build upon his obedience.


Max will need to be de-sexed but aside from this he is in great health and has been vaccinated by his former owner. 

Max has a slight allergy to grains (which results in a red rash on his skin) and will need to be kept on decent quality foods (we recommend Acana which he is on currently) for the duration of his life.

Adopter Requirements: 

An adopter based in the South Island area who is able to give him some further training in terms of obedience.

Max is active and would enjoy someone who can walk him regularly (ie. at min. once a day).

Max needs a very secure fence – not too low with no holes and gaps.

Max has some anxiety issues and would be best suited to someone who is retired, works from home or is able to take him into work with them.

Max would be best as an only dog. Max might be fine with another dog if they were lower energy (see above for more on this). Higher energy dogs tend to annoy him.

Adoption Fee: $400.00

Max comes with: his new crate and bedding, k9 harness and lead and starter supply of Acana food.
