If you're interested in helping a quiet shy guy feel comfortable and gain some confidence, Maxxy would love to meet you! He is currently living in an APA foster home, but he'd like to find somewhere permanent where he can really settle in.

Maxxy has a curious nature, and he seems to be quite intelligent. He usually keeps a low profile but we're hoping he'll continue to perk up after he finds his forever home. He knows his basic commands and might like to learn more from you. He enjoys going for walks, and his manners are quite good. He keeps a loose leash and will keep pace with his walker. Hitting the pavement is one of his favorite activities!

While Maxxy is calm while meeting new people, he is tentative and is generally not much for affection. He will whine to let people know if he'd prefer a bit more space. He is well behaved around the house - he's been left alone in the home for short periods without any problems. He's house trained and spends a decent amount of time lounging around!

Maxxy would do best with a patient family with previous dog experience. He seems to want to try new adventures and might just need some confidence! He is interested in other dogs but we haven't let him interact with them just yet.

With a bit of work we think Maxxy could be a great companion for the right home. And don't forget, when you give Maxxy a home you'll be helping the next dog who can join our foster program! Come meet him!

Say "Yes" for Sapphire this Giving Tuesday

Living as a stray, Sapphire was struck by a car. She was bleeding, writhing in pain from nerve damage and bruised ribs — and pregnant.
