Max...

needs a home.

If you missed my post about Max, it can be seen HERE.

Chris is ready to keep him but we also know our apartment is too small. Plus we already have three other pets and can't really afford a fourth.
He is up to date on all his shots and is fixed. He weighs about 65 pounds and is supposedly, according to the vet, 1 1/2 to 2 years old. He has the energy of a puppy.
Therefore, he ideally needs a home with another big dog or children who actually spend a lot of time in the yard with him. I think for your sanity, and his, he needs a fenced in yard.
He knows commands and listens well. He does get excited and jump so he needs someone who can be firm with him. He also needs lots of exercise.

If you, or someone you know, might be interested, contact me. My husband will probably ask you a thousand questions but if you are right for Max, then we will all be ecstatic.
And know that if you ever need a dogsitter... seriously, I'm all over it!

Plus, your dog is famous! He's all over my business cards! : )

I thought you found a home for Max? Well, I hope he finds a good forever home that will be patient and loving, but still firm. He's such a gorgeous boy.

Emilee-
I was looking back at what you wrote on the first post about Max... maybe you are right. Maybe he does need a home with us.
I don't know what to do.

For those of you who are wondering the same thing as Emilee...
This is what I wrote to her (and I'm not mad or upset with the person I am referring to... I just feel it's unfortunate that things didn't work out. It's important that every dog is in a happy home and Max just wasn't making his new owner happy):
Max did find a home. And I was super excited about it.
He was going to obedience classes and everything. But it just wasn’t a good fit with their personalities. Max is energetic and excitable. She was always nervous and worried about him… and scared when he would jump on her... and I think he picked up on that. So then he was waking her up at night… which he never did when he stayed with us.
She likes Max but just doesn’t have the energy to keep up with him and so she called me tonight to see if I could find him a new home.
Talk about STRESS!

I think we might see if Chris’ brother has a house available for rent right now and see if we can get into it if so… and then WE will keep Max.
