10 month old • Male • 35 lbs
Maxx is an adorably big-pawed puppy with soft tan fur and a white blaze on his chest. His ears are just floppy enough to resist all efforts to stand at attention, and he is so very cute!
Maxx is such a good-natured boy! He loves his toys, his treats, his people, and his puppy friends! As a partially sighted puppy, he relies on his mouth for some of his sensory experience: He often has his mouth open, giving kisses to people and inviting his canine pals to play. Maxx is not the most graceful pup in the room, but when he falls, he gets back up and keeps on moving! And as far as he knows, he is just a regular puppy--loving and ready to be loved! Maxx is house-trained and sleeps easily through the night.
Maxx may have had some trauma as a young pup. He has some problems with his gait and his balance and is blind in one eye. He is otherwise healthy and has had all of his puppy vaccinations.
Maxx is a stray who came in with his sister, Molli.
