Young Male Labrador Retriever/Shepherd mix

Passed away 2/25*** My name is Maxwell. I am a 1-year-old Lab/shepherd mix.... I was lucky enough to escape a bad situation and wind up in an amazing foster home where I have learned what it's like to be a loved dog! I love playing with my fur-siblings, my toys and taking naps on the couch. My old owner was a male who used to beat me with a belt, so I can be shy around men at first, but once I realize they are nice, I warm right up to them! Me and my foster Dad are best friends, he taught me that men can be cool!! I love love my foster mom, especially when she lets me nap on her and rubs my belly! Just check out my video on Petfinder at: I am housebroken and crate trained. I walk well on a leash, but I do pull when I see a squirrel -- oh man I hope they stop running away and play with me one day!!! I'm working on my house manners (sometimes I like to help myself to treats on the table!) but I'm doing my best to learn how to sit and ask nicely for them instead of helping myself! I promise to be the best dog if you will consider adopting me today.
