Max is currently being fostered in Eastern North Carolina.


Max (Maxi Moo) is a sweet 1 year old husky (mix?) with limitless energy; he is current on vaccines, neutered and HW+.  Max enjoys chest and belly rubs and will look straight at you while chewing on things he is not suppose to just for attention. He needs more leash training, but loves meeting new people on walks. Max plays rough with his housemate husky, but gets high remarks when he attends dog day care. His previous owners said he was good with kids, but he never quite learned where his teeth are and will accidentally bite the wrong thing or person while playing, therefore older kids are recommended. Max is house trained, likes to help cook in the kitchen, playing with shoes and loves to destroy toys just for the squeakers.  Will you be the one to give Max his own forever home?
