Dandy like Max was surrendered into our care together with little Sashi as their owner became too ill to care for his pets. What a good looking dog he is, reminding me of an expensive Steiff toy of my childhood, long, long time ago…He seems to be a mix between a Shepie and some kind of Terrier with wiry hair. He is spry, his coat of vibrant colors is perfect, his teeth still quite healthy and his eyes barely cloudy…Hum, I wonder if he is really 15…I would put him between 8 and 10 years of age. A relative of the master brought him and may be he got the age mixed up….Max was scared when he took his admission medical examination. Like so many people, dogs too can be wary of doctors… Since then, Max has switched to a more cheery behavior which earned him a seat in the adoption quarters…Leashing Max is no problem. He walks very nicely , occasionally pulling toward other dogs, ignoring the birds and marking a little his territory. He could be house trained. His kennel is clean and orderly. He seems to be of an independent nature, does not always sit upon command but I bet he would he we were more acquainted…He takes treats politely from my hand and accepted my caresses toward the end of our encounter. Max shows some interest meeting other dogs but it is quite brief. He lived and played with a little female ShiTzu and was friendly to the house cat according to the person who brought him in. By adopting Max, you would get a great friend. My hunch is that Max has still a number of good years in front of him to serve a new master with his love and loyalty. Come and meet him soon at the Manhattan Care Center.
*Person surrendering animal was family member of owner and had limited personality/behavior info*

Max was described as friendly and outgoing around strangers. It was unknown if he had spent time with children, but he had not lived with any. he lived with another small dog and was friendly and playful around her. He lived with a cat for about a year and was tolerant of the cat.
For a New Family to Know
max was described as friendly. he has a medium activity level. he is used to eating dry food, and would go on leashed walks at least once per day.
Behavior During Intake
Max displayed loose body. He allowed for collaring. and all other handling. He was constantly wagging his tail, and liked to put his front paws on tall counters so that he could sniff them.
10/5: When introduced off leash to another dog in the care center, Max offers brief sniffs, otherwise roams away. Previous owner cites “he lived with another small dog and was friendly and playful around her”. The behavior team recommends slow introductions between Max and other respectful dogs.
