Posted Breed: Cattle Dog / Boxer / Mixed (short coat). Age: 2 Years Weight: 48 lbs Location: CT This dog has been spayed/neutered, is up to date on shots, on heartworm preventative and is microchipped. This handsome, handsome boy is also known as Mr. Fabulous by his foster mom, and rightly so, as he is just amazing in every way. This is Bear and Bear is deaf. Bear looks to be a Cattle Dog/Boxer mix and is approximately 2 years old. Bear's tail takes a left turn due to being broken in the past. He has black spots on his skin that show through his fur and on his ears and belly - they are like polka dots! He also has some black hair on his back, like an Appaloosa horse. He is SUPER handsome and just a sweet, HAPPY dog. Bear is good-natured and friendly - there's not a mean bone in him. He is always happy and always ready to play. Bear has a sparkling personality that is sure to bring his new family many, many smiles. Though Bear started life being dealt a difficult lot - he is deaf and his owner moved away and left Bear and another dog (adopted locally) without food and water - he has found his way into a very special situation. A local trainer who is a friend of SOS was looking for a deaf dog to foster and fully train on and off leash...and Bear fit the bill. This opportunity truly saved Bear's life and has given him the chance he has always deserved, to become the dog he is meant to be. Bear has now completed his training - he is leash trained, fully trained on basic commands, trained with solid recall - an essential skill for an active deaf dog - and also trained on a vibration collar. Our trainer has offered to support Bear with complimentary training for life in his new adoptive home. Do not let Bear's deafness stop you from considering to adopt him, as deaf dogs make wonderful family members. Just like any dog, however, Bear does have specific needs in order for him to lead a full life. A large fenced-in yard is a must. Additionally, Bear is very social and playful with other dogs, so another medium/larger breed dog with a similar play style (rough and tumble) is essential. Bear also needs a family who is committed to learning his training language and being consistent (free RI-based training support for life will be provided). Last but not least, Bear has a lot of love to give and energy to share - he will need to be provided with plenty of daily mental and physical exercise. Bear is not special because he is deaf, but because of who he is despite his deafness! Please remember, dogs do not love through their ears...they love through their hearts! If you have room in your heart and home for a dog like Bear and welcome him into your pack, we promise you that you will wonder how you ever existed without him. Medical Note: Bear was treated for generalized demodectic mange while in the SOS program. Bear responded well to this treatment and fully recovered now. Please note that there can be a hereditary component to demodex, and it can flare up in any dog in times of stress (eg, transport, transition to a new home, etc). As such, the adopter is advised to discuss this condition and best next steps with their veterinarian. Please see here for more information on demodectic mange: http://www.vcahospitals.com/main/pet-health-information/article/animal-health/mange-demodectic-in-dogs/741 . Please discuss any concerns with your veterinarian. Medical Note: Bear tested positive for exposure to ehrlichia while in SOS foster care. This does not mean this dog had ehrlichia. Bear is/has been asymptomatic while in SOS care and was preventatively treated with a 28-day course of doxycycline. Please see here for more information on ehrlichia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ehrlichiosis_(canine). Please discuss any concerns with your veterinarian. Adoption Fee: $425 To apply for this dog, fill out an adoption application on our website: www.sosarl.org/aa/ **Additional info you should know - For most of our dogs, we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each of our dogs as an individual and do our best to describe and place them based on personality not breed label. Some dogs may not yet be in New England, nor ready for immediate adoption. There may be additional vetting, quarantine, waiting periods and/or fees depending upon your state of residence. If you have questions or concerns on any of this, you can discuss this with your Adoption Counselor.

If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Ruthie *LOCA...

      rescue
      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: Wakefield, RI
      Posted Breed: Shepherd / Mixed (short coat). Age: 1-1.5 Years Weight: 34.7 lbs Location: RI This dog has been spayed/neutered, is up to date on shots, on heartworm preventative and is microchipped. This absolutely gorgeous girl is Ruthie! Ruthie's new to SOS, but the more we learn about her, the more we love her! Her breed mix is a mystery, but she appears to be a Shepherd mix about one to one and a half years old and weighing 34.7 pounds - a great size - not too big, not too little, just right! She is doing well with her house training - she's left loose with access to a few rooms in the house when her foster parents are at work and has only had a few accidents. She walks well with an Easy Walk Harness and leash. She has only been crated in the car down south so will probably need crate training. Her foster "buckle" her in in the backseat with a travel harness that clips into the seat belt and she does fine - still a little unsure of car rides, but liking them more and more. High value treats are invaluable! She is capable of climbing or jumping a 6-ft. fence and will try to get out, but it would appear she only does this to get to people. She dearly LOVES people and is eager to meet them during her walks! She's very curious and inquisitive watching people do their thing in the neighborhood as she walks along, and it seems she waits for the invitation to go over to meet them. She's quite playful and can be goofy at times. She loves to play with her toys and entertains herself with tossing them, shaking them about and pouncing on them - her typical high energy period is 6-8pm after dinner. She's okay with some other dogs, so introductions are a must, and she does seem a bit nervous with dogs larger than she is, and can be reactive with other dogs - a good hold on the leash is imperative. It may be best if she were an only dog. She's good with kids and is very gentle when approaching them. As for kitty cats, she would love to chase them, but stops dead in her tracks and checks them out in her alert stance. With prompting, she will "leave it" and carry on with her walk. Squirrels and rabbits are a different story and she's very quick to spot them, so again a good hold on the leash is imperative. As with all our dogs, we strongly recommend obedience classes as it not only provides an opportunity for learning commands and socialization, but helps to promote that ever-important bond between the dog and her human family. Ruthie is as sweet as they come! She was picked up as a stray and then adopted out to an older man last May, but he found her to bee too active for him. His grandchildren loved her and were quite upset when he returned her. Ruthie would be a wonderful dog for a single person or a retired couple who could give her lots of attention and love. She may do best with someone who is around much of the time. She's desperate to be with people and she is a very loving and sweet dog! Since arriving in New England, Ruthie has loved rustling through the fallen leaves and watches in amazement as they fall from the trees. She "jumps for joy" to see her human come home from work at the end of the day and even upon waking up in the morning. In her excitement she almost jumps up with all four paws off the floor while moving backwards as your enter the room! She's just so darn cute and it's funny to see this "live." She's been taste testing local apples (she prefers Fuji) and occasionally she'll take a teaspoon of coconut oil - carrot snacks are a no-go so far. She definitely benefits from several good walks a day. Currently she gets a vigorous one early in the morning, a quick walk at lunchtime, another vigorous walk after her foster Mom gets home from work, followed by one or two quick walks later in the evening. A fenced yard would be ideal for her since she LOVES to run - a quick jog on her vigorous walks helps with this. So if Ruthie seems like she might just be the sweet dog you've been looking for, don't wait. Just go ahead and fill out an application for her. Ruthie will help remind you how amazing this world is!

      Breed: Husky-Labrador Retriever Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: Wakefield, RI
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Husky / Mixed (medium coat). Age 2 Years Weight: 55 lbs (as of 4/4/2015) Location: RI This dog has been spayed/neutered, is up to date on shots, on heartworm preventative and is microchipped. Meet Winnie! Winnie looks to be an adorable Lab/Husky mix. She's very active and loves to be moving. House training and leash training are in progress and she's doing very well with both. Winnie is used to living as an only dog, but would likely love to have a canine brother or sister. She has lived with large dogs in the past and done great. Winnie would benefit from basic obedience training with her new family, as this will help her build confidence as a happy adult. Winnie is used to living a quiet life, without many new people coming and going or taking many adventures. She likes to play fetch and LOVES her toys. She will splash around in the water but hasn't tried swimming yet! She has lived with kids, and does well with them. We recommend a relatively quiet household who will gradually work on exposing her to new situations and people so that she can continue to build her confidence. She does well with car rides. Winnie would be a fun girl to take along for walks, hikes, camping, to the beach - you name it, she'll be great as your sidekick. Will Winnie's new life and home be with you? Winnie's History: Winnie first came into rescue at 10 months old. At that time, she was posted on Facebook as "free to any home." Lucky for her, we were able to rescue her and find her a safe and loving adoptive home. Winnie is now looking for a new home, as her adoptive family no longer has the time or schedule to give Winnie the attention she deserves.

      Breed: German Shepherd Dog-Pointer Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Wakefield, RI
      Posted Breed: Pointer / German Shepherd Dog / Mixed (short coat). Age: 7 Years (as of 12/25/15) Weight: 44 lbs (as of 1/18/16) This dog has been spayed/neutered, is up to date on shots, on heartworm preventative and is microchipped. This stunning beauty is Freckles! Freckles' mom was very pregnant when she was rescued after years of trying to catch her and then gave birth to Freckles and her litter mates two weeks later on Christmas Day. What more beautiful gift on Christmas than life! Freckles appears to be a Pointer/German Shepherd mix (her mom was a Shepherd). Because she's not known any life outside of the shelter, Freckles will need to be house trained, but she is already crate trained and walks well on a leash - she loves a brisk walk! She also loves to play and romp but isn't demanding of large amounts or long active events. Freckles is good with other dogs though she tends to want to be the alpha dog, and she has a healthy respect for cats, but isn't actually overly interested in them. She has done well with meeting people at various outings and would probably be fine with children. A fenced yard is recommended (6-ft. wooden) for Freckles, but she will climb a fence if left alone and gets bored. She also exhibits storm anxiety and tries to escape when there's bad weather. (She managed to get out of a 10x10 metal pen with a roof recently during a thunder storm.) Freckles loves toys and LOVES water! She would definitely be an ideal beach buddy! She will play fetch, but doesn't always bring the object back. She's affectionate, eager to please, smart and even-tempered. An obedience class is recommended, not just for the bonding aspect of it, but it helps with confidence building and socialization. Summer's almost here so fill out an application for Freckles today! You'll want to have some time to get to know one another before beach season hits! And Freckles is waiting just for you to take her there!

      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Rottweiler / Mixed (short coat). Age: 4-5 yrs Weight: 51 lbs This dog has been spayed/neutered, is up to date on shots, on heartworm preventative and is microchipped. We are pleased to introduce...Martin! Martin appears to be a 4 to 5 year old Lab/Rottie mix. He was found dodging traffic on a busy street in Mississippi. Luckily for him a kind volunteer stepped in to help and...you guessed it, Martin has bought a bus ticket north to join SOS! He is an extremely sweet, happy, and outgoing dog. He is moderately active and would love a fenced-in yard to play in with you. Martin loves adults, kids, dogs, and cats. He is leash trained and crate trained, but did manage to sneak out of his cage while at the shelter when he got bored! Martin's house training status is unknown, and he will need obedience classes to brush up on his house manners. Obedience classes are a great way to get to know and bond with your new family member. What do you think...is this great dog the one for you?? Medical Note: This dog tested positive for exposure to ehrlichia while in SOS foster care. This does not mean that this dog had ehrlichia.

      Location: Wakefield, RI
      Posted Breed: Belgian Shepherd Malinois / Shepherd / Mixed (short coat). Age: approx. 7 Years (born Fall 2009) Weight: 73 lbs. This dog has been spayed/neutered, is up to date on shots, on heartworm preventative and is microchipped. This absolutely stunning dude is Huey Lewis! Huey has more than just stunning good looks going for him! Though he will need to be house trained since kennel life is all he's known, he's crate trained and walks well on a leash. He plays great with other dogs and loves people. He's good with kids, but because he's so big, he might inadvertently knock over smaller children. Huey's good in the car and totally LOVES to play and run in the yard! A fenced yard (6-ft. preferred) is recommended so that he can do all his running and playing safely. An obedience class is also recommended, not only for the owner/dog bonding aspect, but because it can help build confidence and aids in socialization. Huey is very smart, even-tempered, gentle and can be a bit goofy. He hasn't been cat-tested yet. This is a dog that needs a person - he's very affectionate. Someone to love him, care for him, and comfort him. Huey is full of love and for the right family, he can provide a lifetime of companionship. Like his brother, Louie, he has a very unique coat and coloring. His top coat is a beautiful golden chestnut with black highlights, but his under coat is light in color. Occasionally, under the right light you can see both. His tail actually looks as though it's outlined in black! If you think you'd like Huey and his stunning good looks to be part of your life, fill out an application today! Huey's waiting just for you! Huey and his two siblings, Louie and Dewey, were found in downtown Jackson, MS, living in the underground world below the streets. The dogs were just pups then, but have since grown to be large in stature and personality. Though his early days on the streets made his brother a little anxious, Huey is just a large, playful goof. Update from our southern partner, May 2, 2016: Huey has always been an outgoing and playful guy, but somewhere in the past year he is suddenly timid and shy. I am thinking it is "shelter syndrome." While he had been going out in the large play yard I think he became insulated and now the new things thrown at him have him confused and scared. I did have a trainer coming and working with the dogs but as often happens with volunteers she has had life get in the way. I am hoping another girl can come up more regularly on weekends and help with some of the timid dogs.

I’ll be there on Saturday, December 3, 2016, at Bow chika Wow Town in Warwick RI 02886, 27 Meadow St., from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Bring your pet(s) to be photographed with Santa Paws and come meet me – I could definitely fit under your tree! But don't wait! Fill out an application at least three days in advance to be pre-screened! A furever home’s at the top of my Christmas list! ;@ Age: 7 Years Weight: 50 lbs Location: RI This dog has been neutered, is up to date on shots, on heartworm preventative and is microchipped. Huckleberry might be an older dog, but he is still young at heart. He is good with other dogs and good with cats. And as his foster mom says, "he's soooo house trained, it's crazy!" Huckleberry is a low maintenance dude, who loves to nap by a warm fireplace and may take some coaxing to go out in the snow. He tends to favor women more than men when it comes to his interpretation of pack structure. Don't let his chill appearance fool you though, Huck loves to run around the dog park and play with other dogs. He would do well in most homes with the right structure, consistent guidance and strong leadership. Huck likes to let you know when he is excited - when his people return home, when he is in play, when he is refereeing the other dogs around him - but we are working on proper manners and he is an excellent student. He also makes a good guard dog and will vocalize when a stranger approaches his home. Huck would be a fabulous candidate for scent work, and this would also provide him with the mental stimulation he craves. Huck came into rescue because he was used as a hunting dog and when his owner no longer had time for him, he surrendered him to the local kill shelter. If you can give this older gentleman the type of home where he will thrive, please fill out an application. Huck will give you many years of love and companionship. Medical Note: Huck has been diagnosed with hypothyroidism. He is on daily medication to manage this issue and doing well; this medication costs about $15/month.

      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Wakefield, RI
      Posted Breed: Black Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Age: 2-3 Years Weight: 70 lbs This dog has been spayed/neutered, is up to date on shots, on heartworm preventative and is microchipped. Hey there, it's me - Sam! Are you a fun-loving active person? Are you looking for a fun-loving dog? Well then look no further - I'm the one for you! I look to be a black Lab mix that is estimated to be 2-3 years old. I am good with all dogs, of all sizes and ages. I have not been around cats or children, so I can't tell you for sure how I feel about them. I can tell you that I am sweet, friendly and love being around people. There's nothing wrong with couch potatoes, but their not my kind of owner I am looking for. I am looking for someone who will take me running, hiking or anything that is fun and requires me burning off my high energy. I am crate trained and it seems that I am likely (not positive) house trained, as I have not had any accidents anytime I have been indoors. I need more work with leash walking, and until I get better I can be too strong for some people. I have to warn you - I can be an escape artist. When I have the urge to run I will try to escape when someone opens a door, and I have also been known to push open gates and take off running. One time my foster mom thought I was safe in a secured fenced in yard so she left me unattended for just a few minutes and within seconds I was gone like the wind! I was found over a mile away, so now she never leaves me alone, even in a secured area. I love the water and playing in a kiddie pool. I do fairly well going for rides, just think how cool we will look cruising around together. I would love to go to obedience training, as know one ever spent time with me to show me how to do things that all dogs should know how to do, like: "sit" on command, "shake hands", and "down". Not only I was not taught things, I was also not treated nicely. I am likely blind in my right eye, the doctor says it was from some kind of blunt force trauma. Don't worry, I can see fine out of my left eye. I also had what is called Heart Worms, but I was treated and tested negative in November 2015. I was rescued from a high crime area last year, and now I am more than ready for my fur-ever home. If you have the love and energy for a guy like me, please fill out an application...I can't wait to start our lives together! Medical Note: Sam has been treated for heartworm disease with melarsomine injections. Untreated heartworm disease can cause lasting damage to the heart, lungs and arteries, and can affect the dog’s health and quality of life even after the parasites are gone, possibly presenting as medical complications and/or new conditions in the future. Sam showed no symptoms of heartworm disease before or during treatment. A good resource for more information on heartworm disease is: https://www.heartwormsociety.org/pet-owner-resources/heartworm-basics . Please check with your vet if you should have any questions or concerns about this condition, and discuss any concerns you may have with your SOS Adoption Counselor.

      Posted Breed: Black Labrador Retriever / Shepherd / Mixed (short coat). Age: approx. 7 Years (born Fall 2009) Weight: 65 lbs This dog has been spayed/neutered, is up to date on shots, on heartworm preventative and is microchipped. This beautiful smile belongs to Louie Lewis! Louie has so much going for him! Though he will need to be house trained since kennel life is all he's known, he's crate trained and walks well on a leash. He plays great with other dogs and loves people. He's good with kids, but because he's so big, he might inadvertently knock over smaller children. Louie's good in the car and totally LOVES to play and run in the yard! A fenced yard (6-ft. preferred) is recommended so that he can do all his running and playing safely. An obedience class is also recommended, not only for the owner/dog bonding aspect, but because it can help build confidence and aids in socialization. Louie is very smart, even-tempered, gentle and can be a bit goofy. He hasn't been cat-tested yet. This is a dog that needs a person - he's very affectionate. Someone to love him, care for him, and comfort him. Louie is a big lug full of love and for the right family, he can provide a lifetime of companionship. Louie has a very unique coat and coloring. His top coat is black, but his under coat is light in color (like his brother Huey). Occasionally, under the right light you can see both. If you think you'd like Louie and his beautiful smile to be part of your life, fill out an application today! Louie's waiting just for you! Louie and his two siblings, Huey and Dewey, were found in downtown Jackson, MS, living in the underground world below the streets. The dogs were just pups then, but have since grown to be large in stature and personality. The early days on the streets have made Louie a bit anxious. When we took him out of his pen for photographs, we were worried his nervous energy wouldn't allow us to get the photos that he so rightly deserved. Reaching the play yard, however, Louie took off, letting his long strides carry him in wide circles around the camera. But a strange and great thing happened next - we realized that as long as someone was touching Louie and providing him gentle reassurance, he'd show his bright smile for the camera and the world. Louie is just waiting for his human to find him - could that be you? Update from our southern partner - May 2, 2016: Louie has always been an outgoing and playful guy, but somewhere in the past year he is suddenly timid and shy. I am thinking it is "shelter syndrome." While he had been going out in the large play yard I think he became insulated and now the new things thrown at him have him confused and scared. I did have a trainer coming and working with the dogs but as often happens with volunteers she has had life get in the way. I am hoping another girl can come up more regularly on weekends and help with some of the timid dogs.

      Breed: Dachshund-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Wakefield, RI
      Posted Breed: Dachshund / Mixed (short coat). Age: 1 Year (est. as of 4/20/16) Weight: 16-18 lbs. This dog has been spayed/neutered, is up to date on shots, on heartworm preventative and is microchipped. This handsome little guy is Loki! Loki appears to be a dachshund mix about a year old. He and his buddy Thor were surrendered to a local southern shelter with seven other dogs and judging by their extreme shyness and nervousness around people, have had very little human interaction in their lives. With patience and enough time to settle in and relax they do begin to warm up. They are learning slowly in their foster home that people aren't going to hurt them - that interaction with humans is a positive thing. Their foster is able to pick them up and carry them around, and Thor is now actively seeking out attention though he still occasionally hides. Their socialization will take time, but Loki and Thor have a lot of love to give and with patience they will each blossom in his new fur-ever home! Both dogs love to wrestle and play with other dogs and with toys - we don't know how they are with kitties. They are most likely too shy and skittish at this point to be in a home with children. Thor is a chewer - box springs, harnesses - if it can be chewed, Thor will chew it. He will need some indestructible chew toys to keep him busy. A securely fenced yard is a must. Both dogs are house trained and crate trained. Both are used to being crated at night and when their foster mom is not home. Thor is now leash trained, Loki isn't. Currently their foster is leaving a leash attached at all times and this is a good idea for awhile in their new home as well. They should also be afforded several "hiding spots" in the home: Thor prefers closets and under the bed; Loki's more into crates. An obedience class is strongly recommended for adopter and dog bonding, and for the opportunity it gives for confidence building and socialization for the dog. Though Loki and Thor could be adopted as a pair, they would most likely benefit from being adopted separately, and would do best with another well-adjusted dog in the adopter's home from which to learn social skills. It is also recommended that the adopter have experience with extremely shy/timid dogs. Both these boys are smart and with lots of time and patience, either one of them will make someone a wonderful buddy! If you've been looking for just such a buddy as Loki, fill out an application today and prepare to be amazed as he transforms into your special little guy!

But don't wait! Fill out an application at least three days in advance to be pre-screened! A furever home’s at the top of my Christmas list! ;@ Age: 6 Years Weight: 11 lbs Location: RI This dog has been spayed/neutered, is up to date on shots, on heartworm preventative and is microchipped. Max here! Hi, I'm Max and I'm looking for a new home, as my last family moved out of the country and couldn't take me with them. I am said to resemble a Jack Russell Terrier/Chihuahua mix that is around 6 years old. I would like nothing more than to be part of a loving family again. I am friendly but a shy boy, so I need a family who will be patient with me until I settle in and my confidence grows. When I get scared I have never tried to bite anyone, I will just run and hide. I'm okay with other dogs my size but larger ones make me nervous and so do little kids, so no little kids and big dogs for me. It took a few days to get used to my foster mom, but now I follow her around and I love to sit on her lap. I don't like to be by myself and when I am, I whine, so unless my new owners are home a lot I wouldn't make a good apartment living dog. I am house trained but I sometimes will mark when I'm stressed. I am crate trained and working on leash training. I get very nervous when walking on a leash, so a home with a fenced-in yard would be best for me, if not you may have to let me drag a leash behind me until I'm more comfortable with everyone and everything. I am low key and not very playful, but who knows how I will be once I know I am safe and loved again! With my fearfulness, I can be a high escape risk, so you will have to be very careful with open doors and never let me off leash in an unfenced area. Working with a trainer will help both of us get through the early stages of us getting acquainted, so ask the nice people here - they can help you find a good one! If you are understanding and have what it takes to help me come out of my shell, please fill out an application...I'm ready for a commitment, if you are! 9/5/16 UPDATE: Max is doing MUCH better with strangers and has been to adoption events now. He is a little timid and wary but generally will let strangers approach him and pet him if they go slow. He is also doing amazing with bigger dogs now. He just has to warm up a bit to them. He is crate trained but does occasionally mark. He prefers to sleep in his foster mom's bed (under the covers, of course - his poor foster mom is running out of room!). Max is bit of a food hound - if there is people food anywhere around him, he will do his best to find it and eat it. Max's foster mom says he could learn agility...that is if they hung hamburgers and chicken nuggets around the obstacles!
