Max is a Great Dog but a Forever Foster and has a severe Hearing Loss due to many years of having a ear infection without being seen by a Vet. Max has a tendency to SCREAM out as if being beaten upon the slightest touch. Max is comfortable with his current Foster and has come a long way, now learning basic hand signals because of his hearing loss and will Not be placed due to his advanced age. Max has a job in his very active, Foster intake home and helps comfort many of the new Shelties coming into COSR.
Will you consider being a Sponsor for Max? Even at his age, he is only taking a Heartworm preventative monthly and a tiny Baby aspirin a couple times a week.
