Max is not quite a full GSD and is 3 years of age. He is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. He has been with his current owners since 7 months of age after they took him in from a lady who could not look after him.
Max is good with the older children in the home and fine with other dogs when out. He has lived with another dog in the past. A no to cats! Used to being left a few hours, good on the lead and basic commands. Recall not established as not let off lead when out however. No issues over food or toys but will be possessive over a bone. Nervous but ok at the vets.
Max is overly protective in the home and will not allow any visitors in, however is not so bad when out and about. This is has been exasperated due to a family issue, and this is why Max is being rehomed. The family cannot give him the time he needs as they have to concentrate on their family and they recognise the situation is not helping Max’s protectiveness either.
Max needs a GSD experienced home please and would probably benefit from living with another dog so he does not feel the need to have to be the protector of the home. Loves toys and treats which will help with his continued training, and learns very quickly. A very loving and loyal lad!
Max spent time in foster with a pack and was fine with other dogs, just wanting to play. Absolutely no problem with women but has issues with men. He has now been moved to kennels to work on his people socialisation.
This is what the kennels have to say about Max:
“Max, now this dog is very much a lady’s man and hasn’t been phased meeting new women volunteers, he just flirts and want cuddles with them. He does have issue with meeting new men and will have a pop but after a walk he soon settles. He loves other dogs too. He will protect his doggy friends.”
