Maxx is an 8 month. old male Lab/Border Collie mix. He arrived in the program on 6-1-22. If you would be interested in adopting Max when he completes his training, please contact Linda Domer and email@example.com or 301-800-6102.
Because we have not been able to get in the prison due to staffing shortages, no journals have been collected.
Maxx has finally settled in and is relatively comfortable with his handler. Maxx is people reactive when safe guarding his space or his handler does not properly instroduce him to people. He is not dog aggressive. He has been introduced to Sam, Maggie, Kato, Max and Daisy, alll of which went well. They all ended up playing with each other.. Though Mazx bonds with all his canine neighbors, he did lunge at a person who started hin. He also growls at people he doesn't know but his handler can reassure him and he settles. He would not do well in a home with kids.
Week1. Maxx is as close to perfect as any dog. He's been the only dog in the program since the June/July 2022 timeframe. On Thursday, 10 Nov 2022, Fiona and Odie (the mastiff mix puppies) arrived. Maxx was amazing! He played with the puppies, was gentle and gave amazing corrections to the puppies when needed. Maxx loves people and, based on his interaction with the puppies, enjoys the company of other dogs. Maxx also knows all his cues and commands. He was perfect. He would make a wonderful companion to any family (kids 10 yrs or older), couple or single individual. He bonds quickly once he knows who you are. His issues of growling have disappeared. Maxx is ready for his furever home!!
