Maxene is a sweet and affectionate senior in search of her final and forever home. She is a 9-year-old 70- pound boxer/ terrier mix. Her foster mom says she loves to snuggle up close. She follows from room to room and adjusts to reconnect when her foster mom breaks contact. She has been beautifully behaved with the low-key senior lab girl with whom she has been living, often curling up close beside her. She enjoys playing fetch and chasing her one true love, her big purple Jolly Ball! One of Maxine’s fans even bought her a ball of her very own so she can take it to her new forever home. So cute to watch her play – it’s hard to believe she is 9 years old!

She’s been excellent around kids over 10 years old. She’s a smart girl who knows her basic family dog manners like sit, down, come and gentle. She is house trained and crate trained but really prefers to be around her people. She rides well in the car and was calmly crated and left alone for several hours when needed. She doesn’t do well with kitties and due to her prey drive she should not go home with cats or with dogs under 40 pounds. Maxene is a sensitive sort who isn’t fond of strange dogs, fast moving cars, or bikes. They make her anxious and she prefers to be a home-body. Her ideal life is one where she mainly stays at home with her people, and where there is a 6-foot fenced yard where she can play with her doggie housemates and her big purple Jolly Ball to her hearts content.

She is a very affectionate and devoted dog who will thrive with loving care. With human companionship, she would also do fine as an only dog. She is a sweet, healthy senior who deserves a forever home where she will be included as one of the family. If you enjoy that same stay-at-home lifestyle and you’re in search of a devoted companion dog, Maxene just might be your perfect match!

Maxene is posted for the Humane Society of Southwest Washington in Vancouver, Washington.
