From chained to cherub!  Say hi to Max!!! We first met him chained to the ground having lived his entire life out of doors as the property gatekeeper. After several weeks with his foster mom, a lot has been learned. Initially we  thought he was deaf, but it is just selective hearing that improves exponentially when treats are handy!!!   Max is a very sweet boy and loves his person SO MUCH that he may bark when others he does not know approach but this has all but stopped completely. He does really well with other dogs but is the alpha so keeping a water bottle handy when new dogs are introduced is a must. Ideally he would be an only dog but this is not a requirement with appropriate introduction. He spends afternoons in the backyard with all the other fosters, some who were at his previous home and did not like him. It is assumed that proper introduction was not carried out since they all get along without supervision now.  Max is generous with giving kisses especially to knees and legs and enthusiastically accepts belly rubs. He sits on command and will take his reward very gently, occasionally needing a reminder that fingers are not expendable. For the first time in his life he has been exposed to play and will chase a ball tied with a string and hung on a tree as it swings back and forth.  He has played tug of war with his tire toy and will chase a large exercise ball around the yard and whip it around furiously once he catches up with it. He is fully house broken and twice a day pottying should suffice. Although raised outside, he does not want to be left there alone anymore. He is happy to be out with you as long as you would like, but by your side is where he wants to be. He is estimated to be 3-4 years old and is neutered and has had a one year Pro Heart injection to prevent heartworms.  He does really well on a leash and loves to meet other dogs in the neighborhood. Dogs like Max is what rescue is all about. He started out defensive and fearful of everyone and reacted the only way he knew how-protecting what was his. With time, love, patience and creative training, he has blossomed into a sweet angel. He may regress slightly in a new environment but all he will need is love and a little bit of time to relax and trust. It’s easy to find a home for a cute little puffball but a dog like Max needs someone special.  Can you help us find that person? Could it be you? Look him up at tireddogrescue.com

Good with Dogs, Good with Adults, Requires a yard, Likes to play with toys, Playful, Affectionate, Intelligent, Goofy

We at Tired Dog Rescue strive to find homes for dogs in need, build quality relationships with responsible owners, and preserve current dog-family homes by seeking solutions to financial, behavioral, and situational dog problems. We believe the lives of homeless, abandoned and abused dogs are just as precious as dogs that currently have a loving home. We believe that all dogs deserve a loving home despite their age, medical condition and/or disabilities. We provide whatever medical care is needed regardless of cost. All dogs are spayed/neutered, heartworm negative and current on vaccinations before being placed.
