Meet An Adoptable Dog
Breed: Labrador Retriever (short coat)
Weight: 65 lbs est
Height: 24 in
Estimated Birthdate: 9/29/2018
Fence Needed: Yes
Location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC
Reason for being in rescue: Maxwell was picked up as a stray while attempting to gain entry
into a business. Do you think he was looking for a job maybe: As he was microchipped, his original owner, now living in Arizona, was contacted. She rescued him as a puppy and had him vetted and found a home but sadly has lost track with the owner. So Maxwell is now looking for a new home.
Special Needs: None noted except a real desire to be loved and cared for
What kind of home would be best for me: Maxwell loves to explore! He is looking for an
active family that wants to include him in their adventures. He has done well with dogs, large
and small, here at the rescue. He could be an only dog but would do well with another dog to pal around with. An experienced dog owner that’s home more than away would be best for this
What is my personality like: Maxwell is a typical gregarious, happy, laid back labrador retriever. Maxwell has been very calm with people and dogs. He gets along well with everything. He is eager to get out of the kennel and explore - we suspect this is how he ended up getting away from his home. Maxwell gets very excited about vehicles. He’s ready to load up and go!
Maxwell is a energetic happy boy that is looking for a running partner. He loves to run and boy is he good at it. He would enjoy it if his human companion shared his interest in running or hiking. He sleeps in a crate here at the rescue and does well with keeping it clean. It’s recommended he have one in the home as he does enjoy having a place to retreat to for a mid day nap. He has several buddies he loves to romp around with and would enjoy dog parks or going to doggy day care once he adjust to his new family and environment. Maxwell could also have another large dog in the home to play with but it is not a requirement. He is a little shy when you first meet him but warms up quickly with some treats! This boy is highly food motivated and would do great with positive reinforcement training. He enjoys puzzle toys and lick mats as well.
Maxwell is such a sweetheart once you get to know him.
How do I act when I first meet new people: Maxwell has been calm and welcoming to every person that he’s met. He can be timid at first, but warms up very quickly with treats.
Tips and Tidbits: Maxwell is estimated at 4 years old. We celebrate his birthday as 09/29/2018.
House trained: Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained. A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.
Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.
Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.
