A Little Bit About Me…
A volunteer writes: Max Steel is a very pleasant dog to spend time with. Easily leashed, he walks like a dream, checking on me from time to time, doing his business, ignoring birds and respecting his peers. We had the best time in the yard…Max is very low key, easy going, a good listener, a perfect sitter, treats or no treats(he did attempt to search my goodies bag, though) and seems to like other dogs. He was particularly interested in a tiny gal playing on the other side of our gate. He had met her before…and had been a little pushy… I scolded him on the matter and Max Steel posed sheepishly his head in my lap where he almost fell asleep under my caresses… I so love his little chipmunk face… Max came to us with his “sister” Lady as their owner moved to a place not allowing pets. Max comes with excellent notes , all pointing to an great family dog. He got along with all and was across the board, very well mannered.Cats would not be his cup of tea, though. Max Steel touched my heart. I have a very soft spot for this sweet, friendly, sociable and lovely dog who will made once again a wonderful forever best friend if you take him home. Max Steel is waiting for you at the Manhattan Care Center.
