About Me: Hi, I'm Maximus, a big goofy puppy weighing 72 lbs. I've been in and out of the shelter since I was a puppy and am looking for my forever home to settle down in.

Personality: I'm a very playful, energetic boy who also loves to cuddle. As bubbly as I am, I can be fearful of strangers at first, so I need people to go slow with me and give me treats so I know they can be trusted.

My Dream Home: I'll need a house with a private, securely fenced backyard. Ideally my home will be a calm and quiet while I learn to adjust to a new environment. I'd love an active family who will play with me and take me on long walks or occasional runs when it's not so hot out!

Kids: I think I'd like a family with kiddos who will play with me! Due to my size and energy, I may knock tiny tots over so adopters with small children should be mindful of that. Please bring all members of the family to meet me!

Dogs and Cats: Please bring potential doggy siblings in to meet me. My previous owner said I was friendly with cats but it's still important that you go slow and start with safe separation at first.

Submit an inquiry form today if you'd like to meet me!
