MAX 8yr black lab LRRSE

(I have permission from lrrse to post this)

Max 8 yr old black lab
micro chipped vaccinated & castrated
Great with children (my two are 8 &10)
Great with people
Very loving & affectionate…………a real life black furry shadow!!

This is max’s story

Max’s elderly owner died and the family put max in the pound
LRRSE took max on
Max was fostered for just over two weeks and then his fosterers went on holiday and couldn’t take him with them…….
So max came to stay with us and he has been here for 3 weeks now.
Max walks very very well on the lead and although we have not let him off lead I feel he wouldn’t go too far as his recall is very good.
Max has been walking lots and lots trying to shed a bit of excess weight Jhe’s doing really well and is starting to shape up now….
Max has a beautiful shiny coat and he has plenty of get up and go, always ready to go out for a walk.
Max is great when left and hasn’t chewed or taken anything he shouldn’t (which is always a bonus )……. he sleeps like a baby at night and is no trouble.

Max has some problems sharing his own space………and although he can be surrounded by dogs on a walk and not bother with any of them……. He does not like other dogs in his space while in the house and has to be fed separately as he is very possesive of his food, max also becomes jealous if another dog is given attention…….
Therefore max is looking for a home where he will be the only dog
I must stress though that he will be no problem while out meeting other dogs unless they decide to get up close…. He doesn’t go out of his way to cause trouble and what he would really like is a nice easy peaceful life where he gets plenty of love walks and attention.



In 2 weeks we are going on holiday and there is so far no one to foster or offer max a forever home……… really don’t want to see him back in kennels again

Ideally it would be great to see max go to the home he will stay in for the rest of his life before we go away but if there is someone who can offer max a foster home with no other dogs that too would be fab.
Max was offered a home originally but this fell through…..unfortunately he still has a reserved stamp on his picture on the lrrse website…… this will be updated shortly.
The write up on the site was done by his first foster home.
If you are interested in max and think you can offer him the home he really deserves please either pm me or contact lrrse.
Max is fostered here in mid beds (only 10 mins from m1 jnt 13) ……if you want to come and meet him please pm me and we can arrange

Fab post and great pics from Alfmar.

Poor Max really is in need of a home but as stated above we are also looking for a foster home that can take him if a new home isnt found in the next two weeks.

Please do contact myself, Alfmar or Sue Birmingham at lrrse direct if you can help with fostering or give Max the home he so badly deserves.

this is desperate now
if a home cannot be found for max then transport must be arranged to get him to the kennels before wednesday 12th august
we cannot leave this till the last minute and there is absolutely no way we can take max on holiday with us.

Another push for this guy.

We are REALLY REALLY Desperate to get Max into a new foster home or better still a permanent home.

There has to be someone for this lad, we really dont want to put him back into kennels.

If he needs a foster home, I have space for a lovely lad like him, the only issue is i dont have a car at the moment.

thankyou nealy..... but max is looking for a foster/forever home with no other dogs.

it's been pretty difficult here not having eyes in the back of ones head :lol: :lol:

he's lovely and does respond to `NO MAX' immediately..........but of course you need to be watching to stop the act and so max has to stay in the utility room when i am not able to give my full attention :(

Thanks for the reply MargaretAnne.

Looking at your profile pic I assume you have dogs.

Unfortunately Max doesnt mix well with other dogs, we are still searching for someone who cant have him as an only dog.

Fingers crossed we have found Max his new home. We have a couple going to see him on Sunday and hopefully they will fall in love with him and he will go home with them.

Keep fingers crossed everyone.
