A volunteer writes: Our little muscle man, er...I mean puppy, Max, in his pristine white coat, gets up from his bed as I unlatch his door. Easy to leash, once we''re outside he uses the ''facilities'' immediately confirming that he''s housetrained as advised by his former owner. He pulled hard on the leash as we walked to the park, but checked up often as we went. Once in the park he posed for some pictures, rejected both my treats in such an adorable way (sniff, nose up and look away), and then lay down at my feet while I took some notes. We''re told that Max lived nicely with a 2 year old, and was playful with an 8 and 11 year old with whom he spent time, lived with two other large dogs, doesn''t guard his food, enjoys baths and likes to play tug and with toys. Max ignored other dogs we passed while walking, even a small yappy one, allowed me to pet him all over, and each time we stopped and then started walking again he started wagging his tail! According to his previous owner Max can get overly excited when going for a walk and will sometimes try to grab the leash. Max was a bit shy with me, but when I saw him later in the day with staff he came running over to me burying his head in my lap and snuggling. He''s a baby who needs love, structure, and some positive reinforcement training to learn that the leash is not a toy. He didn''t do it with me at all during our time together (but being with us is all new to him). He''s used to a family and is hoping that a new person or family will find him and make him theirs. Our little white muscle man is waiting!
