Miss Maxie is a super duper happy doggy She is a resilient pup too! You see Maxie was abandoned by her former owners when they moved and left her behind. Her former owners also failed to give Maxie preventive medication for heartworm and unfortunately upon her medical evaluation at the shelter she did test positive for heartworms. But Maxie never let any of this misfortune bring her down and now after approximately 6 months of treatment we are hopeful her next test will show that she is heartworm free
Like we said already Maxie is a happy girl – she is friendly and playful, goofy and sweet ! Maxie would be in heaven in a fun home with all the love and belly rubs she can get She would do great with kids! Since she can be a bit rambunctious we recommend children in her home are 8 years old and up, however she could certainly live with younger dog savvy kids. Although Maxie is extremely friendly with people she is very dog selective and would do best as the only dog in the home. Maxie will need a cat free home.
Maxie is almost 3 years old (she is a Christmas Eve baby) and weighs approximately 70 pounds (but could stand to use a few of those pounds!)
