Max will remain in the Recovery Room until intake vetting has been completed for both him and Frankie. He is said to be bonded to Frankie M, but displays no anxiety when Frankie is elsewhere in the home or yard. Max is an active, friendly, and fun dog that loves to play fetch and enjoys the company of the other dogs in the foster home. He is said to have some anxiety around small children and loud noises.
Max and Frankie need to be in a home together, with experienced owners who can give them love and attention. They are both affectionate and lovable. They both can have food aggression, but strangly enough they will wait their turn when treats are being handed out, even in the presence of the other dogs in the home. The food aggression is noticed when they can "steal food" or get into a trash can, then whatever they have stolen becomes theirs without willingness to give it up. So trash cans and other non-dog items must be out of reach and / or in secure cabinets.
More to come on Max and Frankie soon.
