My name is Max (#3048). I am a healthy 9-year old Beagle and Lab mix. My favorite things to do are to go for walks and bark and chase cats. I would love a forever home where I am the only pet. Although I have not been socialized with other dogs and will bark at them on walks, I am an absolute sweetheart with people. I am very mellow when I am at home and love to follow my foster family around the house or go outside to garden. (I have quite the green paw.)
My foster family calls me a “delightful little dog.” They say I have “come out of my shell a bit.” (I’m pretty certain that I am a dog, not a turtle, so I’m not sure why they would say that about me. I love people but sometimes they say and do weird things. Oh well.)
I am a very good learner and I enjoy learning new things. The stuff I have been learning includes:
* Waiting at the door before going out. I absolutely know what this is all about, but as with all things, I like to test the limits.
* Sitting and waiting before eating. This is still a bit of a challenge for me but if my butt comes off the floor when my food is put down, the food goes back up. After a couple of tries, I give up and wait. Just testing again.
* Staying out of the kitchen when someone is cooking. Also a bit of a challenge still. After all, the kitchen is where the food is. But a treat for staying on my side of the invisible line usually helps my memory.
I have had no accidents in the house. I will sleep in my crate and kennels on command without problems. All in all, I am pretty much a model citizen and I hope you will feel fortunate if you adopt me. Want to see if I’m right?
One last thing I’d like to let you know before I close: I love riding in the car!
Max is being fostered in Eugene, OR
