Our handsome Max is that exceptional, all around family dog, that is rare in rescue.  Max loves everybody, and has not flinched at all during a rescue process that leaves lesser dogs rattled.  

We've been trying to piece together Max's backstory, and here's what we know for sure:  Max was found tied to a tree in Brooklyn, NY.

His signature Coonhound big mouth drew the attention of good samaritans who called City Animal control. When Animal Control Officers found him it was a blustery day in February and he had been without food, water and shelter for some time. 

Throughout the chaotic rescue process, Max has been an absolute charmer. He is so full of life and personality, and at the age of four, he still has a bit of the puppy Mojo going on. Max is like a kid in a candy shop, soaking up new experiences with sheer glee.  He is a super dog who would do well in any type of environment.

Max appears to be a Treeing Walker Coonhound, and he lives up to their lovable reputation.  He is a large dog, at a lean weight of 60 pounds. His short, flat tri-colored coat is largely black and tan, with white markings. Max has a mischievous twinkle in his eyes, and he always looks like he's flashing a giant smile.

Max is a very happy-go-lucky guy, and would be a great addition to an active family with older, dog savvy kids.  He is friendly and will give everyone in the family equal attention.  Max is not one to play favorites, and he is very stranger friendly.  He could also join an active single or couple, who can provide at least one to two leisurely leash walks, so that Max can meander and stop to smell the "roses."  Scent hounds are extremely easy to manage because the leisurely walk that engages their senses, provides much needed mental and physical exercise.

Max also needs a fair amount of exercise and focused playtime so that he does not become bored and get into mischief. He would benefit greatly from ongoing obedience training, which is helpful in providing additional mental stimulation. He is learning his commands, although he can become distracted easily, but he is treat motivated. He responds well to positive reinforcement and leadership techniques, and seems to enjoy his training sessions.  He seems to be a confident boy, ready and willing to work.

Max has good house manners, and is house trained and crate trained.  Adopters should expect to troubleshoot the occasional accident that will inevitably occur during his transition to a new home. He has been neutered, and has received routine vaccinations and health screenings.
