Max in Austin, TX

Are you looking for your best friend? Look no further! Introducing Max!  

Max is an active, fun-loving 5-year old male looking for his person. He melts in your hands with any affection shown. Max came to the rescue after his owners had to suddenly move out of the country. He was well cared for and loved by his former family.


He is great with other dogs, but what he really wants is to be with his person. Max is very smart; he learned how to use the dog door in a matter of minutes!  


He is neutered, heartworm negative and just had a dental cleaning (with 10 extractions). The vet said his heart sounded very strong! His foster family believes him to be mostly deaf, but it hasn't caused any issues.

Max is happiest being where you are and will do whatever you do. He needs a home with someone who works from home or can take him to work. He is anxious when left without his person, which may improve given time.  


He only barks when very excited or anxious, and he has destroyed a roll of toilet paper. Max does fine being crated for a couple of hours at a time. He chases cats and needs a bit of leash work. He needs a secured (preferably wood fenced) yard, although size does not matter.


Max is a wonderful, loving and devoted Cavalier that will make someone VERY happy.
