Maxwell strives for trip to the dog beach

Maxwell… the loveable addition to our little family!

Christmas Maxwell

We adopted Maxwell nearly two months ago now and he has settled in very well. Some might think too well, as it is hard to imagine now that he has not always been part of our family. Already in the first week a very strong bond developed and has been growing ever since.  We are pretty certain that he loves hanging out with us just as much as we love hanging out with him!

Despite being a ‘long termer’ at the dog’s home, he is very obedient and love meeting new people and going for walks in new areas. Unfortunately, he is reactive towards some dogs, but with great support from the dog’s home via a few training sessions we have come a long way. Also, with BBQ chicken & cheese and positive reinforcement methods it is amazing the difference we have seen already. Our long term goal is to get him to the dog beach… And we will get there together!

Shenton Park- thanks for doing such amazing work, we will forever be grateful for the loveable addition to our little family.

Cheers Tom and Christina

  • Dear Maxwell, you were always the most talktive dog in kennel #3, but once you were at home you changed dramatically

  • Congrats to Maxwell for finding a loving caring family. Maxwell looks just like my dog "Buddy" at the age of 6 months when I found him at the Animal WelfareShelter here in Adelaide. Buddy is now 9 years old. He is my mate. His behaviour, with love, trust , many,many walks and homeopathics, has just made him a very likable/lovable kelpie/heeler/companion. He goes into nursing homes. swims in the sea and river and loves life. By the way, just thought I might add, I have always meditated re with cd/tape etc. From day one,just lke my other dog, Buddy meditates with me. this is our daily ritual. Ifeel this has helped his behaviour as well. all the best Mandylee...

  • and i remember from the Subi craft fair that it's mostly small dogs he doesn't like.... i told him he didn't have to express his opinion about them everytime he saw one!
