Its EZ 2 C that Max will B SUM1s BFF4evr. He leaves me ROTFL with his XLNT antics. YKWIM?

Okay, maybe I have been texting a little too much lately, but Max is 4 reelz!

Max is a beautiful jet black mix, with soft, curly fur, and approximately 80 pounds of love. He is a sweet, sweet boy who has blended in well with my eclectic household. He gets along great with both small resident dog, and medium sized niece dog. He doesn't always realize how big he is and my small girl has to be careful not to get trampled when they go in and out of the house. He is a Velcro dog, as are the other dogs in the house so everywhere I go in the house I am surrounded by adoring fans. Oh wait, that's because they always think they are going to get treats. Speaking of treats, Max generally has very nice manners, he sits for his treats, sits for his food, and listens when I call him. He does bark out the window and at people coming to the door which I am sure is intimidating since he is so big. His tail is always wagging and there is no threat with the barking. He's just sharing the love!

Max came into RAGOM due to some serious hip issues that cause him pain and may require extensive medical care. He is UTD on almost everything and is having both his normal vet check and a specialist visit next week. He does have some pain medication, but notes indicate they make him sick to his stomach, so I have not been giving them to him. He has shown some indications of discomfort, a little stiffness when getting up, a little bit of bunny hopping with the back legs when out for our short walks, and some yelping when I accidently stepped on his tail this morning. Of course, I would yelp too, if someone stepped on my tail. I have been taking my entourage for short 10-15 minute walks two to three times a day (hard to be out longer with the cold weather, for me, not them), and he loves to be outdoors.

I will post another update after we vet next week.

I have had the wonderful opportunity to get to know Max...I sprung him from boarding for the week so he could get a little face time! It's amazing how he has settled right in---very little adjustment has been needed to get Max used to my home routine!

What a wonderful dog! Where can I begin....He is a beautiful, 76 pound, tall, silky, black Golden Retriever-Max looks kind of like a Flat Coat Retriver (he may have a little sheperd in him too). I have had him since Saturday, he has been left with full run of the house and he is trustworthy. Max is not a chewer, but loves to carry his stuffed animals around. He has had NO accidents and he has been left home for roughly 10 hours! I get the feeling that he would like to play with the house cat, but the cat is not interested at this time. He loves to be near me; I bet he would love to be your cuddle bug and shadow too! Right now he is at my feet taking a little siesta.

There has been some concern/questions about Max's hips...I'm not sure what the concern has been---I am still gathering information, but so far he has been totally agile! He follows me up and down the stairs and he jumps up on my deck---not even using the stairs! He loves to take walks and go for car rides. Off his lead, he stays right near by--coming when called. He knows sit and how to lie down too. He does like to jump a bit; we have been working on this--a flat hand out and a solid "NO" seem to work. He is also motivated by treats, so we will continue to work on his manners while he is here.

This evening, we had a little 15 pound canine visitor-Lucy. Max and Lucy got along great! They ran and chased each other and gave each other kisses; I think Max would do well with another dog; I think he would be cool by himself also. He is very flexible...I think he just wants and deserves a nice home and family to love him.

I can't say enough good stuff about this love bug! Come on over and meet him....tell me what your thoughts are!

I've included some pictures for you too! Some of the pictures do not do him justice. He is jet black and sometimes his body outline and face are difficult to photograph. He is a beauty though--like I said....come on over, meet him and tell me what you think!
