Maximillion is about 18 mos old, and is a purebred German Shepherd who has TONS of personality! He is an active, confident dog, who is very intelligent, learns quickly, and wants to please his handler. He has allot of "ball drive" which means he will play as long as you will play with him! It also means that these types of dogs are easy to train! Maximillion is a very "social" dog, meaning that he loves to be with other dogs or around people. He could be a dog for competition sports or obedience, or he could be a pet for a moderately active owner. Max is not a couch potato, but he is fine with a long walk or some play time each day. He is crate trained and housebroken. Max is OK with the foster home cat. Because Max is smart, happy, outgoing, and active, it also means that he needs someone who will train him. His hip xrays are good and are available to the new owner. Max had a few rough edges when he came into our program, but he has been receiving training in his foster home and now makes everyone stop and admire his "etiquette" when around people and dogs! This boy needs someone experienced with GSDs and someone who is willing to keep training him and exercising him. In return, you will have a wonderful, wonderful dog. He would not do well with another dominant male dog, but would be fine with a confident female. Everyone who gets to know him falls in love with his joyful nature and is personality.
