A Volunteer writes: Maxwell has a very engaging smile and bright blue eyes that makes me want to meet him. He is pretty quiet in his kennel but is at once at his door when he senses that someone wants to take him out. He springs out of his den, ready to take me for a ride…Thankfully, he is a friendly guy and weights only 40 pounds…Maxwell jumps a lot,seeking attention, may be, making at first our walk quite difficult but eventually, when he gets the message that it is not ok and with sustained guidance, he walks in one straight line…Huskies are quite active dogs and need lots of stimulation, physically and mentally. A kennel is not the best place for them…Maxwell, as related to us by his former owner. He gets quite excited seeing other dogs passing by. Maxwell is quite likable. He can sit on command and even waits relatively patiently while I am talking to a staff. He needs some reinforcement and encouragement to keep down his high energy level. He sits as I ask and very much enjoys petting of his attractive head and gorgeous lush coat. Maxwell has been beautifully cared for by his former master and is a magnificent representative of the breed. He is young at one year of age and comes with very good credentials. Maxwell is at the Manhattan Care Center, ready for the winter and dreaming to meet you, his new master and teacher…

Maxx likes to be brushed and given bathes but has never had his nails trimmed. When an unfamiliar person or animal approaches a family member or his home he approaches them in a friendly manor.
