  Meet Max!

Sweet Max has had a rough first year of life, most of which he spent in a crate and being passed around. Finally, he landed with a family who cared for him but didnít understand his needs so they called NBGR for help. Since Max spent so much time alone in a crate he developed separation anxiety and would go around and around in circles when let out of the crate. He also wasnít house trained and he was fearful.

Fast forward a few weeks and what a difference. Max has been with a wonderful foster family who is helping him overcome his fears, teaching him to walk on a leash and helping him with house manners. All Max needed was someone with patience who understood his needs and who would spend the time with him that he deserved.

Gradually, Max has been reintroduced to his crate for short stays while his foster mom runs errands. He is slowly adjusting to the idea that his crate is no longer a prison. He is even getting in his crate on his own to rest a bit.

Max is your typical Velcro Griff, by you at all times. He loves to snuggle and has found the joy of sleeping under the covers in the big bed. Max needs a family who will continue the great work of the foster family. A home where there is a human around most of the time would be best for this little guy. Max also does better when he has four legged companions to play with and keep him company.

Max weighs 10 lbs, is up to date on all his vaccinations, neutered, micro-chipped, heart worm negative and on preventative. All he needs now is a loving family to make up for lost time. Do you and your family have the time and patience to allow Max to reach his full potential?

Max is located in San Antonio, TX.

If you are interested in adoption please fill out our Adoption Application. If you would like more information, please contact Connie Lawrence at conniel@andell.com.

Keep in mind that we prefer to place dogs within driving distance of where they are being fostered. If someone from outside the local area is approved for adoption, they must be willing to fly in to get the dog and that can only happen if the dog is stable enough to travel in the cabin with the passenger.
