Max is our gentle giant. He was turned in to the Martinez shelter as a stray and quickly became a volunteer favorite. Everyone loves Max.
He is very affectionate, loves attention and enjoys being with his family. If you let him, he would be happy to sit on your lap.
He's almost 100 lbs and we think he's ~11 years old.
True to his breed, Max is a loyal and devoted boy. He will do anything for his family, and only asks for love, respect, hugs and focused attention in return. We are looking for a home for him where he can live out the rest of his time receiving the love that he so craves and deserves. He is learning to share the love with other dogs in the home, big and small. Max has health issues, including problems with his hind legs and his mobility, and all we can do is manage this through medicine and tons of love. He is happy and content. We believe there is a special home out there with a huge empty dog bed waiting for a dog just like Max.
