Max [Adopted 8/31/2013] is an 18 month old male who was surrendered to an inner city shelter because “he got into things”. We have found Max to be a typical puppy with normal energy for a dog of his age.. When we leave for long periods , we crate him. This solves any “getting into things” problems he might have. He is extremely friendly and absolutely loves to run so he really should have a fenced yard.. Max has gotten along well with all other dogs. I am not sure how he would do with cats as he might want to chase them. Max is housetrained. He is a small cocker weighing about 20 pounds. Like any young dog he would benefit from obedience classes.
