Dog for Adoption: Max


Ed’s note: Max has found a new home!

Max is a young German shepherd with a background of pain and neglect. His leg was shattered when he was hit by a car. At the pound, he languished without care until someone took pity on him and took him to the vet. Though the nerve in his front leg was severed, pins in the joint have given him back use of the leg. He can run well and walks with a limp. Max is a gentle dog, friendly and clingy. He needs to be with a person who can be with him and who does not own a cat. Max thinks cats are for eating! Other dogs and children Max can get along with. Max was no doubt kept chained somewhere for most of his life as he is lacking in some social skills and training. He is not used to walks yet either so, until he learns that they can be fun, would no doubt do best in a yard. He loves to chase a ball and knows simple commands and to come to his name. He is an intelligent dog and a quick learner. Someone with patience is needed to give this lovely but sadly neglected dog the time he needs to catch up with the good life a loving home would surely bring him. Please help.
