**PLEASE READ MAX’S BIO THOROUGHLY BEFORE INQUIRING. HE CANNOT BE AN “ONLY” DOG**

Meet our beautiful boy, Max! This little cutie is a male Maltese/Yorkie/Terrier mix that is about 10 months old and around 14lbs. Max CANNOT BE AN ONLY DOG. He MUST go into a home that has another YOUNG and PLAYFUL dog his size or smaller…..NO BIG DOGS. Please do not ask if he can be an only dog. We will only consider applications from those that have another young dog in the home. Max likes to play ROUGH and I mean really rough. He likes to bite on the neck, pull on the tail, and chase and wrestle! We need him to go into a home with a dog that is ok with this kind of playing. If it is a mellow dog or a dog that doesn’t like that kind of rough and tumble play, then it won’t work. We are also looking for a home that has a secure and safe backyard where he can run around and do zoomies in. He CANNOT be an apartment or condo type dog. Max is still working on his socialization and will come to you a bit barky and growly, but that is his mechanism for being scared. He is very food motivated which will help you gain his confidence and love. This boy is one active puppy and he’s FAST, so unfortunately we cannot place him in a senior home. He’s so fast that you have to trap him to be able to pick him up. He is all puppy and is still chewing up things and destroying things so we are only looking for a home that is puppy savvy and has experienced all that. We consider Max a flight risk and if given the opportunity, he will dart out the front door, so we are REQUIRING a wrap pen or doggy gate 2 1/2 ft or higher at the front door inside the home. Even if you have a secure screen door we will still be requiring this. He is a great boy who is also good with children 12 yrs old and older. Max is just a typical bouncy puppy who needs structure, training, patience, and lots of love!

WE ONLY ADOPT IN LOS ANGELES AND SURROUNDING AREAS AS AN IN PERSON HOME CHECK AND TRIAL PERIOD ARE REQUIRED.
