1 ½ years old
*If you are interested in Max please complete our adoption application which can be found here:
Max is a super handsome 1 1/2 year old golden retriever. Max is a high energy, playful, happy boy who wants to please. He needs daily walks and play, and having regular play dates with a similar size/energy level doggie playmate would be great. He is potty trained, knows basic commands, but is still very much a puppy and will put everything in his mouth.
Max’s life before rescue was less than ideal. His first 2 owners used punishment-based training methods. As a result, he developed some trust issues and fear of being hurt. Max has spent the last 6 weeks working with a trainer at a positive reinforcement board and train facility, and has done incredibly well. In order to set him up for success, Max’s adopter will have the opportunity to continue working with our trainer if needed.
Ideally we are looking for an active adopter who wants a smart and energetic buddy. Max’s adopter will need to go slow with him to gain his trust. We are looking for someone with good dog skills will work with Max every day and who will commit to helping him be successful and thrive. In turn you will have an amazing companion.
