OMD. Cute scruffy face alert!! Max is an apricot Wheaten Terrier and here is what Haven of the Heart in Palgrave, ON has to say about him:

Max is a Wheaton mix who flew to the Haven from First Nations Manitoba and was a free roaming dog. Prior to his Travel to Ontario he had been hit by a car and it was left untreated. Once treatment was sought amputation was the only choice.

Maxi is a tripod just over 3+ years old. He can be walked on a body harness, but would prefer to have his own yard to run around in. Off leash Max takes off to explore because that is the life he was used to in Manitoba, so he will need some work on his recall.

Max is good with submissive female dogs, but we think Max would prefer to be the only dog and the center of attention in his new home. Max needs a very dog experienced home, one who understands his quirks and can work with him as he sometimes does not like to be brushed and a dog with his coat needs a good brushing and grooming. He is best suited an adult only home because he likes to jump up and needs some additional training. He also needs a home with few or no stairs so he can navigate his way in and outdoors.

Max is a very loving dog who will push the other dogs aside so he can have all of your love and attention, he is a happy go lucky, excited and a really sweet boy.

Psst! - If Max is taken or isn’t quite for you, perhaps consider another Ontario tripawd such as Gilbert, Lissy, or Nikki!

There are also some amazing trikitties in the area too: Fodka, and James!

And if these tripawds aren’t near enough or the right fit for you, perhaps share them with someone who is?

To find a better matched tripawd of your own, try this!

Note: With any tripawd, it’s good to ask about the reason for the amputation if it’s unlisted, just to get a clearer picture of the pet’s health and history. “Unknown” isn’t a dealbreaker, but more info can help you as a pet parent make a more informed decision!

Ok that FACE! He looks like a really good buddy for the right home with a big yard. Quite an independent dude.
