Hi, I'm Max!

I'm a 4 year old neutered male black Munsterlander / German Shepherd Dog Mix.

Age: Approximately 4 years old

Weight: 57 lbs (underweight)

Physical Description: Short-coated black, rose ears, long tail.

My Story: I'm a 4 year old Munsterlander/German Shepherd mix who was rescued from a dire situation. I was extremely thin and undernourished when I arrived at the shelter, so I'm very thankful to be safe, warm, and well fed. I'm an extra large boy with a lot of energy so I need an active adopter who won't think twice about giving me the exercise I need. I was well cared for at one point in my life, but for the past few months I wasn't living in a house so I'll need a bit of time to transition back to being a house dog. I'm very friendly and really love attention, but I'll need kind and consistent training to help me learn to interact more politely with people.  I'm looking for a dog savvy adopter who understands that I have a lot of love to offer, but need regular exercise and some polish on my manners. I've been through a lot, both physically and emotionally, and I'm yearning for a responsible owner who will really care about me. If you can commit to giving me the time, training, and attention I need, you could be the one who gives me the happy ending I deserve! Due to his size and exuberance level, Max is approved for families with children aged 12 and up.

The online adoption listing websites require that we choose a predominant breed or breed mix for our dogs. Visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable so for most of the dogs we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We encourage you to select your new companion by considering each dog's individual personality and pet qualities instead of relying on a breed label that is only a guess.
My adoption fee is $200.00.
I have been neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and I've received routine treatment for internal and external parasites. I have tested negative for heartworm.
