[button link=”https://pet-net.net/adopt-a-pet” size=”large” align=”center”]REQUEST TO MEET MAX HERE![/button]
$75 Rehoming Fee – Vet Records, Supplies included.
Max is such an awesome dog. He is 7 years young and weighs 75 pounds – a great big bundle of love and licks. Max is a mix of Great Dane and Boxer, with a pinch of other breeds potentially in the mix (Black Mouth Cur, Pitbull). He is very healthy, and has been fixed, fully vaccinated and microchipped.
Max is very well behaved. He is house broken and crate trained. He is a very sweet and devoted dog.
Max had a very rough beginning in life. He was rescued at the 11th hour from being euthanized when he was just 1 year old. He had been living on the streets when he was placed in a shelter. At the time, he was so malnourished that his he was almost 50 pounds underweight.
His well-meaning owners did not have the time or environment for him, and he spent most of his first 3 years in a crate. They placed him for adoption and he found his way into the hearts and home of his current family, who have spoiled him rotten and given him lots of love, care, attention, nutrition and exercise.
Sadly, since welcoming their first child to the family, it has become apparent that Max has anxiety around small children. He is not aggressive at all, but reacted in “self defence” when the little 13 month old girl tried to hug him. She received a nip on her eyebrow. As much as his owners love Max, they are not willing to take the chance of their little one being bitten again. They are planning to have more children, so the situation is not ideal for Max and they want to find him the right home in which he will continue to thrive.
Max family are dearly hoping to find him the home that he deserves. He has so much love and companionship to offer in his forever home. The ideal situation for Max would be a home with a large, securely fenced yard (acreage or farm would be great as well!). He needs to be in a home without small children. He would thrive with a solid routine. Knowing what to expect at what time of the day will really reduce any anxiety he has.
This is a very special dog that deserves a special home. Please offer Max his forever home today. He can’t wait to add love, joy, laughter and companionship to your life.

Playful, caring, obedient, affectionate, good at cleaning up after we eat 🙂
Max has a tricky past, and because of this is a little anxious and also very protective. He got along fine with a cat we had, and his best friend is our little 9 pound dog.
He was doing pretty good with our little girl (she is almost 13 months) until she approached him for a hug and he nipped her eyebrow. He would need a home without children, or older kids who understand how to treat a dog and give them space. He was also attacked by another larger dog, and that has caused him even more anxiety around larger dogs and he gets very protective.
Maximus’s Current Home Environment
In general very calm, I am home with the animals and baby most all day. Now that our baby is walking now, that is when he got pretty anxious. Max is on a routine, the same feedings each morning and each evening, and has a predictable bathroom routine as well. We have plenty of places where he is able to lay, and he has a large fenced in yard to run and play in.
Maximus’s Current Family:
There is myself, (Lauren) and my husband, (Josh) and our now toddler Lily. We have another small 9 pound dog Dana, who Max loves. Before having a baby of course the dogs were our babies and they are totally spoiled. Max just got anxious once Lily came and now runs the house hold.
Maximus’s Favorite Toys, Foods, Activities?
He loves his blankie, a rope, nylabones, kong toys… anything indestructable. Any stuffed toys he will rip apart in about 30 seconds. He loves to go on walks with you and car rides.
Cute Maximus Story:
Max loves when people come to the house. Whenever anyone comes over, he has to greet them with tons of excitement and kisses and will then proceed to whine at their feet until they pet him. He is so desperate for any attention and all of the love all the time.
Why is Maximus Being Rehomed?
Max comes from a troubled history. He was originally rescued from the streets and saved from being euthanized probably around a year old.
At that time, he weighed about 24 pounds on his healthy frame of 75 pounds. The couple who rescued him didn’t have the ability to give him a complete home, and Max lived mainly in a crate for over 3 years.
They got him back to health and gave him all that they could, until they found us. We adopted Max in 2015 and have loved him ever since. He is such an amazing and fun dog and we are deeply heartbroken that we have to give him up. He is 100% a part of this family, getting completely spoiled.
Unfortunately Max needs a calm, stable environment due to his history, and now that we have a toddler running around the house, Max is pretty anxious. He had been doing pretty good around her, until she approached him for a hug and he ended up nipping her on the eyebrow.
It is a completely unfortunate event, and Max is not an aggressive dog, but simply felt like his space was being invaded. Because of our daughters safety having to come first, and also making sure Max is not put in a bad situation, we feel the necessity to find him a new loving home either without children, or children who are much older and understand the boundaries Max has.
Maximus’s Perfect Adoptive Home Will Be:
We are looking for a fun, loving and calm home for Max. We would love his new potential family to be open to contact with us, so that we can see photos of him and receive updates from time to time. We are deeply pained and have grieved this situation, and we pray that we can find the perfect home for Max. He wants a home where he gets all of the snacks, and all of the pets, and maybe even a sleeping buddy.
Please understand that we are deeply pained to give up Max. We will work hard to ensure Max is going to the right home full of love.
