07/02/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Spending time with Maxx is like finding an oasis in the middle of the desert! He’s calm and quiet, gentle and easy, walks beautifully on leash and is quietly affectionate. Likely housetrained ‘going’ was his first priority and a leisurely stroll to the park was a delight for both of us! Maxx is way too skinny so we’re feeding him an extra meal daily to help him gain some weight. He’s stunning and elegant now and I can only imagine the perfection he will be at full body weight. Posing for some pictures in the park, Maxx shows off his sit initially with some coaxing but after getting the fact that a treat was coming he required no coaxing at all. Smart boy our Maxx! He alternates between being a bit grabby with treats (remember, he’s too skinny) and taking them gently. Maxx wagged his tail at every dog we passed on our walk, although in playgroups as of this writing he’s been uncomfortable. A gentle gem hoping to begin his happily ever after with love and nutritious meals, Maxx is hoping you’ll stop be to meet him today.

When the greeting is brief Maxx remains loose and he enters to greet the toher dog with no concerns. He is mostly sexually motivated but may briefly bounce around with intent to mount.
