Max in Northamptonshire

Update October 2019 - Max has bene rehomed.

Poor Max is an unlucky boy. He is owned by a lady, who is a dog professional, who adopted him privately. When he came to her he had a number of issues that she has addressed. He was extremely dog aggressive and she has worked on this. His aggression has decreased and, nowadays, he will tolerate some dogs. He is a typical shepherd in that he has lived with another dog easily, as his pack, but anything 'other' is a cause of suspicion. Left to his own devices, he will pin a dog down but he does not bite. He is still unreliable in this respect, though, and his owner wanted him to be exercised by her teenage son. This is still not possible.

The main reason for rehoming Max, however, is that he is not trustworthy with their cat. He will chase, given a chance - made all the more difficult, when the children leave doors open, accidentally. Consequently she is always on edge and she feels that she needs to supervise them all all the time.

It has been a difficult decision to opt for rehoming. Max is a much loved and manageable dog, in all other respects. He loves children and people of all ages.

Even so, his owner is a busy working mum and she feels that she cannot give Max what he needs. There is every possibility that Max can improve further with ongoing training from an experienced GSD owner. She wants this for him and for him to lead a fuller life, where someone has the time to give to him. So, we are looking for a cat free home for Max, where he can be given the attention and direction that he needs. 

Are you 'up for this?'
