Maxxie previously lived with 2 adults and one 7 year old.

At intake it was noted that a counselor was able to approach Maxxie after tossing chewy treats to her and she allowed all handling by the counselor. During SAFER Maxxie was very sociable and attention seeking. She allowed all handling items to be conducted without issue, and had a relaxed body posture when playing tag with the assessor. During the resources portion of the assessment Maxxie was not interested in the food item, and only showed minimal interest in the toys and rawhides. Maxxie can be shy during introduction, but when given the opportunity to interact at her own pace she easily warms up and becomes sociable. Although no concerns were seen at the time of assessment, Maxxie has been reported guard a house member and has been reported to bark and growl at the child in her previous home, so we recommend an experienced adopter with no children.
