Meet Maxie aka Pooh Bear! He is 1.5 years old, 55-60 lbs, loves long walks, knows basic obedience, likes other dogs and is the most affectionate and snuggly guy once he warms up to you. And he is smart. One of his fans told us, "Tonight he learned “place” in less than a minute, and I got a video because he makes me so proud. He truly is a joy to train and would make the most loyal best friend." He also knows how to sit, shake and touch.
