Maximo: All he needs is love (and a 10-piece McNugget)

It is with great pleasure that we introduce you to our Week 6 Project Pal, Maximo.  When we stumbled upon Maximo, it was truly love at first sight.

For all of my busy, routine-loving friends out there, Maximo is for you. This guy doesn’t ask for much, he’s not complicated, and he appreciates all that is given to him. Those qualities right there = enough to send me to the shelter to pick him up. But, alas, my fiance and his rule about needing a bigger house & bed before I bring more dogs home is really getting in the way starting my cash envelope now for more dogs…any fellow Dave Ramsey followers out there?. Because Maximo loves other dogs, he would thrive in an environment where he has an older, confident dog to show him wussup and a daily routine that he can follow.

As if I needed another reason to head to MCACC to scoop Maximo up, there are a TON more. This guy is so easy-going, he’s just along for the ride.  On a recent “Day Foster Outing” it was noted that the foster took him to Papago Park  for a hike. Apparently, Maximo was excited at first, and then once he got into the hike he was kind of over it can’t say we blame you, bud, I’m always over exercising before I begin. However, any time a social opportunity presented itself, Maximo pulled it together greeting passing hikers happily, letting kids pet him, and giving his fellow K9 hikers a cheerful moment as they whisked by him. Maximo definitely passed his Miss Manners class with flying colors.

Here’s the deal, Maximo is down for a daily a walk or two, but he’s not chomping at the bit to go for a 3-mile run when you walk in the door from work. He prefers a car ride over a hike who wouldn’t? and he literally gives hugs.  This affectionate boy is looking for someone to boost his confidence by bringing him home and providing him with some structure.  Most importantly, a note from Maximo’s day foster….he thoroughly enjoys sharing chicken nuggets.  I don’t know about you, but I am always looking for an excuse to get a 10-piece…..

Maximo is in kennel #69 (which can always change). ID# is A3427367 at the East Valley Animal Care Center in Mesa located at 2630 W. Rio Salado Parkway, Mesa, AZ 85201 (Loop 101/Rio Salado Pkwy)
