Meet Max! He is a curious, happy seven-year-old black Labrador Retriever that gets along well with people of all ages and other dogs. Max’s foster describes him as a sweet and cuddly boy that is a joy to be around. Max was surrendered to WCLRR when his owner could no longer care for him.

Max is a medium-activity dog that LOVES playing ball. He is ready for a game of fetch as soon as he gets up in the morning! Max also enjoys swimming in a pool.

Max is intelligent. His foster and her dog have a nightly routine that involves tummy rubs. Max quickly figured out that if he rolled over and showed his tummy, he’d get attention too! So Max sits without being told to get food and treats. He pays attention to his people and intuitively knows what we want.

Max is house-trained. He has learned to use the doggy door and hasn’t had any accidents in his foster home. His new family should take him outside frequently until he gets used to his new home. Max is okay on the leash but tends to weave, and his new family may want to work with him to learn good leash manners. Max is very food motivated, and his new family can work with him to learn new commands.

Max is well-behaved and has not been a counter surfer at his foster home. However, his new family should keep countertops clear of harmful items such as medicines until they are familiar with his behavior.

At bedtime, Max likes to cuddle on the bed for a while before settling down to sleep. He usually sleeps on the floor in the bedroom. However, he often moves to another room at night to sleep on the floor or on a sofa.

Max’s ideal home would be with an active individual, couple, or family that will take him on outings with them and give him the ball retrieving time he loves. Max is a great dog that does well with people of all ages and would be fine in a home with young children. In addition, he gets along well with other dogs and would enjoy a home with pup playmates.

Max is up to date on his vaccinations, neutered, and microchipped.

ATTENTION! FOSTERS NEEDED! WCLRR is in dire need of foster families. If we cannot get more volunteers to foster for WCLRR, we will have no choice but to stop taking in dogs! Please contact or visit our VOLUNTEER page to fill out an application.
