Max is a very handsome 8 yr old blue brindle Stafford.

He is a much loved family dog but is quite an anxious lad when it comes to noises and finds the house with a young child and baby quite busy and a bit stressful. He is a loving and affectionate boy and very good around the children but really needs a quieter, calmer home where he can relax and perhaps one in a more rural location as he does find walks quite daunting if there are lots of other offlead dogs running about.

Max was a mixer in his youth and excelled in classes but had a complex cruciate operation and whilst waiting for this his leg was sore and did get knocked by other dogs which hurt and made him defensive. He was then on extensive crate rest after the op which compounded his anxiety with other dogs coming near him, although it was quite clear from his assessment that he doesn't look for trouble but is just very worried.

We do feel with lots of positive contact at a distance that Max feels comfortable that this can be improved and he can have a couple of doggy friends to walk with and he has been coming on lots of social walks which are all onlead and he is doing really well and walking with 4 - 5 other dogs in a group without any anxiety.

Typical Stafford, Max is a real softie and does like company and we are looking for a home worker or an active retired home that can work on a gentle programme to help him overcome his anxieties and of course shower him with lots of love and cuddles.

Max prefers to sleep in the bedroom with his mum and dad so please bear this in mind if you are looking to apply.

All in all he is an adorable little boy and wonderful companion, so if you have room on your sofa and feel you would like to help Max, please contact us
