Max was rescued with four other dogs from extreme neglect. Max came into our care extremely matted and nervous. He has been completely shaved, bathed, and cared for. He is scheduled to be neutered this Wednesday, 6/13, and will receive his rabies vaccination. Max has a very sweet and loving personality. He loves to be petted and sit by your side. He does show signs of having been abused, in that he is noticeably nervous when you first approach him. Once you begin petting him, he relaxes quickly and stays close. In his time in foster care, he has made a lot of quick progress in becoming more comfortable. We fully believe that whoever adopts him will be extremely lucky, and he will learn to trust them very quickly. Max is estimated at only 2 years old. He is on the larger side for a yorkie, and has a beautiful face and coat. He has issues with housebreaking, and will need continued training. He does use wee-pads and goes outside during walks, but still pees on floors as well, and will need a regimented schedule and training to break this habit. He is very eager to make friends, and has shown a lot of promise in his ability to be trained. Max has at times chased the cats he’s interacted with, so we feel he would do best in a home without cats. He is very attached to the dogs he was rescued with, however does fine without them. He has not shown aggression toward other dogs he has met, and would do well in a home with another dog. His adoption fee is $500.
