Happy Monday everyone! My name is Maxwell and I am very excited to be your Foster Dog of the week. I have been at CBHR for about 6 months now and believe me when I tell you I have come a long way since I first got here. Not all of us bassets arrive at CBHR knowing the ropes. Some of us have never even lived in a house before. This is why our foster families are so important, they figure out what we need and then help us get ready for a forever family. They sure must be some pretty wonderful people to do that for us. My foster Mom says I am doing so well that she thinks I am ready to find my forever home, Yay for me!!!!
When I first got to CBHR I was so scared and anxious. I barked a lot, I was not housebroken and on top of it all I had those dreaded heart worms. Well look at me now. Heart worms are all gone and I have turned into the goofy sweet dog that I was always meant to be. I am still a bit nervous when there are new situations, but once I get used to things I am just fine. I live with two other dogs right now and tend to follow their lead. If they think it is OK then I think it is OK too. My foster Mom says that I love attention and belly rubs. If one of the other dogs is getting some love then I jump right in there so I am not left out. My house breaking is going really well, I still have an occasional accident, but it won’t be long before I totally master it.
I love to go for walks and exercising has been so good for me. Being active has really helped me find my inner peace and be much less worried about things. I have learned to stay in a crate during the day while people are gone. I used to bark in there because I thought nobody was ever coming back. Now that I now how it works I go right in there and I wait for my cookie. I save all my barking to tell you how glad I am to see you when you get home. I am going to need a family that will be patient with me while I adjust to my new surroundings but I promise I will love you with all my heart and make it worth your while. Check out my profile. I am sure my cute pictures will steal your heart.
