Max Needs a Home

About Max

Name: Max

Age: 18 Months

Can be rehomed with children? Over 10 years of age, prefers a quiet household.

Can be rehomed with cats? No

Can be rehomed with dogs? Yes

Max is another dog that we are helping from Italy. We are working with another rescue and feel that we can find Max a happy forever home here in the UK.

It is thought that he was thrown out of a car because he was found under a motorway completely emaciated. He was rescued, brought back to much better health and now currently resides in a foster home in the UK.

He is now ready to be rehomed.

Max lives in one of our fantastic foster homes, with his new 4 legged friend Ginger. Ginger has been showing him the ropes as he came in a very nervous dog.  Initially, Max had lots of health issues which we have now worked through. There are now no long term threats to his health. Because of Max’s past, he is very nervous when meeting new people. However, SSR, the foster home and our behaviourist have all been working together to put things right and Max is already showing much improvement. He loves being off lead and playing in the river. He has no problems meeting and greeting other dogs when out and about.

Please contact the rescue if you are interested.

Home checks, Vet checks and Adoption fees apply.
