Rescue Me ID: 17-08-27-00230MAXIMUS (male)

Doberman Pinscher    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected 

    Maximus was saved from one of the shelters we work with in Texas. He is neutered, rabies, core vaccines, de-wormed, heart-worm and tick-disease tested; Negative and micro-chipped. He has an estimated date of birth of 8 August 2014 and has an estimated weight of 50 pounds, however since being at the rescue he has gained some weight so most likely more like 60 pounds at the current time. He still has a good amount of weight to gain. Maximus is listed as a Doberman Pinscher and although he looks very much like this breed, we have no way of knowing his true breed, it is up to you to decide what you think his breed/s is. It is important to note ... (Read More)that Maximus is a high energy, intelligent, working breed dog and you really need to be experienced with this breed, or at least have done a lot of research, have support and confident you have the lifestyle to accommodate this stunning boy. 'When Maximus came into the rescue he was extremely thin, fearful of lots of things, didn't like other dogs near him, cowered a lot and had wounds on his head. He had clearly been abused and neglected. With patience and time Maximus has learnt to enjoy life. I had let small puppies hang out with him so that he can get used to other dogs that are none threatening, but also persistent and it was nice watching him at first keep getting up and move when they came near him, to accept them and let them cuddle with him. I introduced him to more dogs and he has since become best friends with a Siberian husky here in the rescue, they wrestle, chase, play and hang out all the time together, it is great to see how much he has progressed. 'Maximus has also gained some good weight, he still has a long way to go to get to the weight that he should be and build up his muscle mass, but he is eating healthily. I do free free so this helps him to eat throughout the day when he is hungry. Maximus now hangs out wish 7 other dogs of all ages and sizes, he gets on great with them, although is best friends with the husky. If any of the other dogs come near the food bowl when he is eating, he will give a very slight growl, but when the husky is there he lets her share with him. He is not aggressive and for the most part the other dogs ignore him and go and eat and he accepts that. I believe it is just with him having clearly been starving at some point he wants to make sure he has enough to eat. I would not say he is food aggressive at all and I have never seen any kind of aggression with him. 'When Maximus first came to the rescue he was not house trained at all, but he has learnt to use the dog door and now finally is going out to do his business and has learnt that inside is not the place for this. He will need to learn to let you know he wants to go outside as here he has 24/7 access to the dog door, but he is a very smart boy and I am sure will pick this up very easily. 'Maximus is learning to enjoy affection, although it is not something he yet craves, but is accepting and wanting it more as time goes by. He loves getting treats and gets excited when I go in to spend time with him and his friends. He loves to chew on the cow hooves and wil hoard a few so he can be sure he has plenty to chew on. We do NOT have cats at the rescue so are unable to say how she would get on with cats. Maximus is going to need a family that is used to high energy, smart dogs, preferably someone who is familiar with the Doberman breed. Someone who understands that he will need training and guidance and learns that humans are in charge so that he doesn't get too much of a handful. A very active family who can give him the lifestyle that he needs. Playing ball in the back-yard is not enough for this boy he is going to need a lot of physical and mental exercise. Going on road trips, to new places, hikes and adventures and letting her explore the sights, smells and sounds the world has to offer will be to his and your benefit. It is important that her family understands the importance of basic and advanced training. We advise that families work on their own basic training so that boundaries and expectations can be set and personalities and body language learnt in the process, which will help form a much stronger bond. Maximus will make a great family addition to an experienced family. He is fun, active and very loving and deserves a good family and home to call his own. I do feel he would benefit from a family with another dog so he can continue to enjoy playing and being a dog, something he clearly has never experienced until life at the rescue. Maximus is available for adoption from Give a Dog a Home, German Shepherd Dog Rescue for an adoption fee of $550. This fee is not negotiable and is used to cover the rescue costs of pulling, vetting, health certificate, transport from Texas to Maine, monthly preventatives, supplements, food and anything else that is needed.
