I am Maxx. Welcome to my page!
I am a gorgeous white and tan parti-colored cocker looking for a forever home! Seriously, everyone says I am the cutest dog they have ever seen. Everyone also notices how sweet and calm I am. My original owner passed away, so I am tossing out my leash in the hope of catching someone's eye! I'll be 10 years old in April, and I weigh 25 pounds, though I'm trying to lose 3#.
Let's talk about my good points. I am house-trained and crate-trained. Cats are ok, because we had one in my last home, so if you have one or two already, don't worry, they don't faze me! :-) I love all human strangers!! In fact, I prefer always to be with My Person. I would be fine in a home with older, dog-savvy kids. I also LOVE Kong Toys, carrots, green beans, and peanut butter! I adore my stuffed toys and am willing to share them with other dogs and people. I ride well in the car. I need a little refresher on leash walking, but I gladly work for food and fun! If a squirrel or rabbit crosses our path, I might show off my hunting instincts. Most of the time I am mindful to restrain myself, though.
I am also incredibly patient if you need your coffee before our morning walk.
I struggle with some separation/isolation anxiety, but that should decrease as I feel safe and happy in a new home (I'm doing very well in my foster home now). For that reason, condos/apartments/townhouses might not be the best option for me unless you have very understanding neighbors or thick walls. I also am not fond of some bigger and/or intimidating strange dogs. If you keep me at a distance, I can ignore them.
Recently the doctor shared some important updates. I have a heart murmur, but the cardiologist said that I do not need any medications - my heart disease is mild at this time. He has prescribed fish oil and wants to see me back in Nov/Dec. I also have a partially torn CCL. I easily take half-mile walks without any problems. My ears and eyes are great considering that I am a Cocker Spaniel! It is obvious that my first human took good care of me.

Wags and licks!
