Ossining, NY Hi Everybody! It’s good to meet you! My name is Max, and I’m a 4 year old, 60 lb american staffie mix. I once lived with a family with two adults, a teenager and a 9 year old. I was a good family dog, played gently with the kids, and never met a stranger I didn’t like. Unfortunately, a member of my family started having allergies, and they didn’t find me a new home. Instead, I was surrendered to the Brooklyn ACC where I was almost killed, despite acing my behavior evaluation! Luckily, a kind woman from Massachusetts saw what a great boy I was, and knew I had definite rock-star family dog potential, and she saved me from my doom! If you ask my foster family, they will tell you that I love being with other people! I like everyone I meet, and can we just say, the feeling is mutual! I’m not a fan of being alone, but I am well-behaved if you need to be away. Not only do I like all people, I have met other dogs and I am very respectful of them (I’m not sure how I would do around cats, since I haven’t met any yet!). I don’t get on furniture unless I am invited up (how’s that for a gentleman?). I’m pretty active too! I love playing with balls, Frisbee’s, anything you can toss around, I will be there to join in the fun! I know how to be gentle when I play with tug toys too! I promise not to bite your hand! While I do love the toys, I know it is polite to share, so I don’t hog them. Speaking of sharing, I don’t mind sharing treats with other dogs, might I add that I do take my treats oh so gently. I do have a grrreeeaat appetite- and will eat just about anything you give me (even my veggies!). I do suffer from skin allergies, so my foster family is trying different foods to see what works best for me. As you can see, I am a pretty cool, laid back guy and will be thrilled to have a forever family of my own. Will that be with you? I think whomever decides to take me in will be pretty lucky to have such a nice guy like me in their lives! Please ask about me today! You will be glad you did.
Max is neutered, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped!
