Max is a 2 year old male Labrador Cross. What a smasher Max is! A handsome Black Labrador with a soft glossy coat and big brown eyes. He has recently arrived from Portugal and has been living in a home with another dog. Sadly, although he was fine in kennels in Portugal with other dogs, he has become jealous living in a house, he can see what a wonderful life he has now and dosn’t want to share it! Max loves to meet other dogs outside though. So now we are looking for a dog free home for him.
Max was abandoned in Portugal and went to live in the shelter, it became very quickly apparent that he loved water. He is great at having showers, baths and loves swimming and anything to do with water!
He was everyone’s favorite and was such a good boy, he really is the best dog that anyone could ask for. Despite not getting on with his new doggy sister in the UK, on walks he is fine when meeting other dogs and has not shown any signs of aggression.
Max needs a dog free home with a secure fenced garden, he doesn’t mind pushing through bushes and hedges so it needs to be fenced in case he tries to escape. He is full of character and energy when playing but also very chilled, undemanding and docile, he would really fit into any home situation whether it be as an excellent companion for an older person or a family. He is smart and quick to train, he learnt leave it and lie down in 10 mins! He is food and toy orientated so there will be no problems in continuing his basic obedience training using positive reinforcement methods.
He is strong on the lead to start with, but after 10 mins or so he does calm down and is doing well with learning to heel. This will definitely improve as time goes on. He is so loving and soft and will bring happiness to anyone that is fortunate enough to have him. He is super happy when around humans and loves nothing better than just sleeping on your feet and licking you to death! He should only go to someone that doesn’t work full time as he dotes on human attention and it would be unfair to leave him for hours at a time. He has spent time with a 10 year old boy and is very gentle and loves to play – he can have his toys and treats taken away from him with no issues.
Max needs further basic obedience training but this will not take him long to learn as he is so eager to please and super smart. Loose leash walking needs further work. Recall needs further work starting inside the house and garden before attempting outside – a strong bond is key for this to work. He is funny chap, loves to play and so friendly. Smart and quick to learn, very loving and loves just chilling and laying on your feet. House trained, doesn’t jump up on furniture. Current location is in the UK, Berkshire.
