2871 ~ Max

ID #: 2871 Age: 2 yrs Gender: male Status: pending

Hi everyone!  My name is Max and I’m two years old.  When I first arrived in Golden Rescue’s arms, I was a bit depressed and lacked energy.  I was also overweight.  I could still lose another couple of pounds but my energy level is back and my mood is bright, thanks to my amazing foster family.  It took me a while to trust again as my previous life was less than perfect but I sure trust my foster family now.  The thing is, it takes me a while to trust people in general so you would have to be patient with me.  For some reason, it takes me longer to warm up to women.  I’ve even growled a few times and I actually nipped as well.  It wasn’t really a bite but I’m so embarrassed about that.  I’m just a little fearful in new situations but once I get comfortable, I’m your typical lovable, goofy Golden.  I love my walks, car rides, swimming, playing, and cuddling.  I’m okay with other dogs but again, I need time in new situations so my overall socialization still needs some work.  I’m not a big barker.  Loud noises don’t bother me and I can be left alone if you need to go out without me.  I have been known to counter-surf, stick my head in the garbage, and drink from the toilet but I’m starting to understand those are not good things.  Yes, I have some stuff to learn but I’m told I’m smart so you just have to give me some time…and patience.  If you do, I promise I’ll be your friend for life.

Max is currently being fostered in the Ashton/Ottawa, ON area. If you would like more information about Max please call our hot-line toll free at 1-866-712-8444 or email and one of our volunteers will be happy to return your call.
