Max is an 8 year old mutt with perfect markings of a boxer with more a pit head. May just be a mixture of boxer and pit, may have something else added. He is also very loving and loyal if he does know you. He was trained to be a guard dog, and is very protective to the point of severe aggression towards people he does not know- even if the humans seem fine with the visitor. He is technically house-trained, but has been locked up inside a house living on his own basically (mostly daily visits for food and water) for 3 years, so he has gotten used to going to the bathroom inside (but only really goes in one place). He needs someone who is able to dedicate time and attention towards training him. He was my father's pet, but my father passed away suddenly in November 2017 and my brother and I do not have the means to keep him or commuting to feed him daily. We would prefer not to euthanize, but that is seeming to be our only real option unless we can find someone willing to take him in. The post says 'unknown' in reference to cats due to the fact that for the first year of Max's life my dad also had an indoor/outdoor cat. Please email or text instead of calling.
