Meet Max! This 9-years young velvety unicorn came to us from our friends at local animal control after his owner could no longer care for him. Though a staff and volunteer favorite at the shelter, he was relieved to be out of the kennels and into a foster home. First off, don’t let his age fool you! Max acts like a spring chicken. He can tolerate a 4 mile hike and loves to walk/run, but doesn’t require a lot of activity. Max is, above all, a people person. When he walks, he wants to greet every single person he encounters. And even though there is so much room on the bed at night, he prefers to sleep on top of his foster mom and loves to be under the covers. Max loves treats (don’t we all?!), is partial to scrambled eggs, and is starting to realize that toys are for fun.

There is soooo much to love about adopting a more mature dog and Max makes everything easy. He is super chill. Sleep. Walk. Sleep. Walk. Repeat. He’ll let you know when he has to go out by standing at the door and crying. And is a sweet and special snuggler. We think Max would likely prefer to be the only dog in the home, but only because he prefers not to interact much with dogs. He always greets politely or ignores when he meets dogs on his walks, and would likely be great with another lone wolf canine sibling, but his priority is of the human variety. Due to his size and lack of known history, older kids would be best for this velvety unicorn.
