Max is a 3 year old neutered male basset. He and his sister originally came to ABC and were adopted out at Christmas time last year. However, Max's adoption was unsuccessful and he was returned to ABC. He was evaluated by an animal behaviorist and passed his test with flying colors! He is sweet, playful and knows basic commands. He loves his rawhide chews!
Since Max's last adoption was unsuccessful, and rather stressful, when he is adopted out, we need to be doubly sure he goes to a forever home. He has had lots of upheaval in his life and needs some permenance. He is a typical male basset and has some anxiety behaviors, however they quickly disappear when he is in a secure and loving environment. He is good with other dogs, loves kids and adults of all kinds. He is fully vetted, and healthy. He is crate trained and due to the transient nature of his past it is highly reccomended that this be continued. Crate training created a safe place of security for him, as dogs are den animals. This should never be used as a punishment. He responded well to the squirt bottle method. He should also be walked using a harness, as with most Bassets his nose rules his brain and if he wants to snuffle something...he will do his best to get to it. He does well in the dogs park too. He had no behavior issues in public. He likes to cuddle on the couch and seemed to enjoy the car ride. This adorable boy deserves the best! Can you be his number one human?
