Max A1075154 is an 11 year old Golden Retriever. He is being surrendered to the shelter because the owner has personal problems and can no longer properly care for him. Max was a gift to the owner from a friend 8 years ago. Max has not been eating properly for the last 2 weeks and he has a lump on his back.
Max is super friendly with strangers. He plays gentle with adults. He lived with a 5 and 8 year old child and he was very sweet, respectful and loving towards the kids. Max never lived with another animal. he has never bitten anyone.
Max does not have any behavior issues. He allows you to remove his food bowl, water bowl or toy away. he allows you to bathe him, brush him and pet him. If an unfamiliar approaches the owner, he is quiet. if an unfamiliar approaches the doorway, he barks.
FOR A NEW FAMILY TO KNOW
max is best described as friendly affectionate and playful. He has a medium activity level. when home, he follows you around. He loves to play with any dog toy. He listens to the command sit, and stay. He has been kept mostly indoors. Max is walked on the leash and off the leash.
BEHAVIOR DURING INTAKE
Max allowed all handling, collaring and hugs from the Admissions Counselor during intake process. He walked to the kennel with alot of sprite in his step and went right into kennel.
Max came to us as an owner surrender due to the owner’s personal problems. According to the owner Max is extremely friendly with strangers, is very sweet with children and plays gently with adults. Max lived a 5 and 8 year old child, and was very loving towards them.
Max walked very well on the leash, and was very interested in interacting with the assessor when entering the behavior room. He allowed the assessor to conduct all tactile assessment items while maintaining soft body language. He followed the assessor with soft body language at the end of the leash on the tag interaction. Max proved easy to handle when chewing on the toy item relinquishing it to the assessor with ease. We believe that Max can go to an average adopter at this time.
