Maximus is an 18 month old male Rottweiler cross Labrador. Maximus is a rescue from Cyprus who is now in kennels in the Cheltenham area and hoping to find his forever home. Here is a little about him. Maximus is still a puppy at heart and so is playful and energetic. He can walk well on the lead but still occasionally has his crazy moments. He is a healthy, strong lad. He is still a youngster with learning to do.
As with any dog large or small, you will find that ongoing patience and training will enable him to develop into the loyal, family pet you want him to be. He can try to be dominant with other dogs and is not keen on small dogs. He also likes to chase cats and other small furry animals if given the chance. We would recommend him as an only pet or he could live with a female dog in the household, but definitely not with another male dog. He has learnt to sit and wait and he has a good recall. However he needs an experience dog owner, especially with experience of large dogs to help him continue with his training.
Maximus is ready to find his very own forever home. He is okay with people and older children. He can still at times be a boisterous, bumbling, giant puppy and will need a home with an experienced owner to help him with his ongoing training and socialisation. We would not advise re-homing him with young children as he may knock them over in his exuberance to enjoy life! As he is a rescued dog, he has not had the best start in life and has missed out on his early stage puppy training. He has now had some training to help him learn what is expected of him but needs continued help and support to help him continue to learn how to be a well behaved, sociable dog.
If you have experience, patience and room in your heart to help this boy achieve his potential, you will be rewarded with a loving, loyal, family pet. He has been neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. Minimum adoption donation is £275.
