Max 2 Needs a Home

About Max 2

My Name Is… Max

I am… Deaf

I am looking for… A forever home



Max has come from a well loved from but due to unforeseen circumstances he is looking for a new home.



Max is a young male, playful and full of energy. He is a vocal boy and will bark to let you know what he wants! He is deaf so he needs his voice to help communicate. He enjoy cuddles and would like to be with someone is who home the majority of the time. He struggles being left alone.

On sunny days, Max loves nothing more than sunbathing. His favourite game is fetch. He will find any balls in the home that are hidden away very easily.

Max is quite a nervous boy, this is probably from having no positive socialization with people in his pup days. He will need to meet any prospective owners several times before rehoming. When is is comfortable, he loves to sit at the feet of his family and sleep.

Max doesn’t like going out after nightfall and is scared of hoovers.

He has been diagnosed with fly snapping syndrome, which is being managed with medication. This is currently under review with the vets.

Max is a rather clumsy and excitable boy who would benefit form additional training. He will make a fantastic companion and very much deserves a happy ever after.



Max  hasn’t lived with other dogs before, but he tends to get on well with other dogs and can be off lead with him. Where Max is very excitable, he is not always tolerated by other dogs as he can be a bit too much.



I am looking for:

  • An adult only home, or with children 16+
  • A home where someone is around most of the time
  • A home who is willing to put the extra work in with me
  • A home who can cope with me being deaf and with awareness to manage my medication and condition
  • A pet free home

Please contact the rescue if you would like to offer Max a home.

Help us find Max 2 a home!

Do you have a home for Max 2?

We are looking for foster families and adoptive families. We do ask foster homes to be within an hour’s drive of Bournemouth as the dogs in foster use our local vets and foster homes will be required to bring the foster dog back to us for any medical treatments.

We rehome to adoptive families within a 2 hour driving radius of Bournemouth. A home check and a vet check is required, with a £200 adoption fee, which contributes partially to kennel fees, vaccinations, microchipping, spay/neutering, flea/worming treatment and other veterinary costs. This adoption fee will contribute to the care of all our dogs.

We have a thorough rehoming programme to prepare you and your dog for each other. We also offer help and support for you both in the future. Learn about responsible ownership or contact us if you have any questions.

If you are considering fostering or permanently rehoming a dog, then please print off and complete one of the forms below:

Please note: We only rehome within a 2 hour driving radius of the Bournemouth area and do not place dogs in homes with children under the age of 6.
