About Maximus

Adoption Fee: $275
German Shepherd
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Male

2 year old 60 pound Maximus was found dragging a chain. Emaciated and heartworm positive (we are treating him) this now gorgeous shep has filled out and is doing well under slow kill treatment for heartworm; no longer a deal breaker and no change in his activity level. And he is active! A typical but small shep. Maxi needs love and activity and structure, so a mature dog experienced home best. Maximus needs a playmate who can keep up with him or to be your only dog. No small kids he can knock over in his enthusiasm. He was partly neutered, has one undescended testicle and when his hw treatment is completed we will address this. Prefer GSD experienced home. Apply on under heading Forms. Excellent vet reference and virtual home visit required. Your prior or current dog must be on year round heartworm prevention. We prefer fenced yard but this is not required for all our dogs. We transport by land or air whenever possible. See video at
