|Fido Lifestyle:||Chill & Mellow Dog, Family Dog|
Max was born on a farm. We got him at 3 months old. He looks like a giant beagle. he is 65 pounds. He loves his people and loves to snuggle. He has grown up around children, his kids are teenagers now. He can sit, take a treat gently, lay down, roll-over, speak and come. He is terrible at stay…he just wants to be with his person! He has always been an inside dog, with access to huge backyard. He chases squirrels and birds. He will bark continuously at dogs on the other side of his fence. He will bite at the fence by other dogs. We LOVE Max and it tears the entire family up that we have to re-home him. We have three dogs and 3 chickens. Our oldest dog is 10, then Max at 8 and the youngest dog is 4. For the past 4 years, Max has attacked and fought with the younger dog. He has never attacked our older dog. Last night Max attacked our youngest dog with the intent of killing him. We must find him a new home where he is the only dog. The youngest dog has seizures, so we can’t re-home him. Please let me be firm on Max needing to be an only dog. Also, please understand Max is such a loving and sweet dog, otherwise. Max gets nervous around other dogs and hates the mailman. Max vomits in the car after 10 minutes, he is definitely not a traveling dog. He is devoted to his people to a fault, he gets jealous. He would make a wonderful companion. If taken on walks, he must have a harness. He pulls out of his collar on a leash.
