Maxwell is the definition of tall, dark and handsome! Add inquisitive, obedient and loyal to the list, and he is the whole Shepherd package. He loves to be active with his people, whether playing fetch, going for walks or rides in the car. He seems to smile when he knows you are going to do something fun!

Maxwell may seem to play hard-to-get when first meeting people, but he warms up once he knows you are a true friend who is up for going for a jog or cuddling on the couch. If you happen to be up for training and brain games, then Maxwell is your match. He already knows many commands, is eager to continue learning and loves treats!

Given his height, he may try to stick his snoot in your treat pouch to sneak some snacks - he is such a funny boy! This sweet boy is looking for an adult-only home that will go at his pace when meeting new people, given his sense of loyalty. He wants to make sure he and his people are safe.

While not playful, Maxwell does appreciate other dogs and could go home with one of similar size. Smaller dogs and kitties are enticing to him, so likely not the ideal housemates. Maxwell is house-trained and can be left free to roam in the house. Maxwell is ready for a home to call his own. Could it be yours? Come meet this funny boy!
