Maximus - Gloucestershire

This beautiful boy is Maximus who is 2 years old.

When Max was rehomed about a year ago, he was severely malnourished and his hind legs were very under muscled but he is now recovered and is a healthy weight and appears to have no other issues.

He is a very friendly, gentle boy and extremely affectionate with his primary owners. He warms up to other family members and people with consistent socialisation.

Maximus loves the current owner's daughter (4years old) and is very soft with children. With younger kids, he has a tendency of watching over them - possibly from experiences in his former home.

He gets on well with other dogs and is currently living with a 2-year-old wolfdog hybrid called Luna who he adores.

Separation anxiety is high. He can be left in the house as long as he’s with Luna - very relaxed. Trying to separate them can be stressful for Maximus. 

Max can be let off the leash on walks once he has got used to his new owners. He tends to pull on the leash but using a Halti Harness helps a lot. Otherwise, he’s great off the leash - ignoring people completely but wanting to say hi to other dogs.

Maximus is being rehomed again because of a relationship breakdown which means he will be separated from his best friend Luna and will be left for very long periods 4.30 am -7 pm on his own whilst his owner works. A dog walker goes in once a day but that is simply not enough for Maximus. His owner is worried that he will not cope well with being separate from the other dog as well as being home alone for so long. 

Maximus won't do well in kennels because of his separation anxiety so his current owner will keep him until a new home is found.

Maximus would do well in a home where someone is around most of the time or where he will have a doggy companion to keep him company.

Maximus is such a loving boy
