Profile

Maxx was surrendered to RAGOM after his family entered a care facility. He is a sweet, happy boy who relishes in human attention. Because of his corneal dystrophy as well as the upheaval he has been through, Maxx needs slow introductions to other dogs and would do best as an only dog at this time. Any children in his home must be 10+ and dog-savvy because younger kids stress him out. Maxx requires a physical fence. His compatibility with cats is unknown.

Maxx 20-163 is an affectionate 9-year-old Golden Retriever. He sits happily while being petted and craves a lot of attention.

He came to RAGOM because his owners went into eldercare. He then lived by himself for six months with visits from family three times a day for outside time. Thankfully, after that, he was surrendered to RAGOM. 

Maxx is well trained and sleeps through the night. He is not destructive and likes to play with his toys. He loves people and has some anxiety when they leave home.  

Maxx should be an only dog, as encounters with other dogs have been stressful for him and he has become reactive.   

Children should be 10+ and dog-savvy as smaller children cause him stress.   

He loves going on walks, but pulls a lot, especially for the first ½ mile or so. After that, he relaxes a bit and does a lot of sniffing! He will bark at other dogs on our walks, but enjoyed a walk with another Golden after a slow introduction. 

Maxx will do best with a fenced-in yard, as this will allow him to run and play freely without fear of other dogs in his space. 

He has been diagnosed with corneal dystrophy, which means his eyes are cloudy and have discharge, but otherwise, he is a healthy, happy boy.
