Today we're talking about him too, about Max, the most ornery of the German shepherds that have passed through our arms in the last year. He has been identified as lying in the snow, unable to move, sad and alone, his eyes empty, waiting for his end. The person who took him in didn't think too long, didn't weigh, but made the best decision, coldly. She transported him to the vet, and from there we were able to get involved, to intervene.
Radiological examinations showed that there were no fractures in the hind limbs, but compressed vertebrae which caused temporary paralysis. He was given treatment and it paid off sooner than we or he expected. One day Max stood up on all 4 paws and took the pen to explore. From there, it's all history. We rediscovered the world together, took walks, played in the grass, smelled the flowers, socialized with the other members of his species, and most importantly, formed a bond all our own.
We would be glad if his oasis of peace were to move to a home, away from the noisy and crowded shelter, to a place where he would be loved and properly valued not for his race, but for the bravery with which he began life anew.
About Max we say the following:
He is a male, German Shepherd, large (¬60cm), 9 years old.
He is sociable with everyone, people or animals, children or puppies
He's old, but he's lively, active and full of life
It's out of the question that he will end up in a chain, we don't give the puppy up for adoption!
He is dewormed internally and externally, vaccinated, unsterilized as old age implies a risk
You can join us with a distribution! Max thanks you for going through his story!
If you would like to adopt a dog from our shelter, we first invite you to fill out the following questionnaire.
It only takes 2 minutes!
What is the purpose of the questionnaire? Why do I need to complete it?
The questionnaire is the first step to adoption and the way we try to get to know you and make sure our fur babies end up in loving and, above all, responsible families (NOTE: We do not consider monotonous answers such as ''Yes'' or ''No'').
Please read carefully some of the obligations to which you are committed as an adopter:
Your contact details as stated in the adoption contract (name, surname, age, telephone number and address where you want the adopted animal to live).
- To ensure that the animal donated by us has a decent, stress-free life, which means: unlimited food and water, a comfortable place to sleep, freedom of movement, the possibility to show his (dog) traits in peace.
- Provide qualified veterinary treatment in case of injury or illness.
- Ensure monthly deworming and annual vaccinations.
- Do NOT bully, do NOT mistreat, do NOT punish the animal. In case of behavioural problems, you must contact our association or a qualified trainer.
- Do NOT under any circumstances abandon the animal if you realise it does not meet your standards.
- Do NOT dispose of the animal unless you notify the donor, i.e. our association, in advance and this will ONLY be done with our consent.
- Notify the association if you change the animal's residence and if you change your contact details - telephone number so that we can keep in touch with you.
- Arrange for sterilisation of the animal at the appropriate age if this has not already been done by our association.
- Notify the association within 24 hours in case of loss or death of the adopted animal.
- Return the pet to the association if you can NO LONGER afford to care for it, if you move and cannot take it with you, if you do not relate well to it, if it is not compatible with your family and/or if you are not happy with it.
- Allow the association to visit the animal, with prior notice, at the request of the association in order to check the conditions provided to the adopted animal and its condition.
- In the event of non-compliance with the provisions and obligations stipulated both in this questionnaire and in the adoption contract subsequently signed by the adopter, our association reserves the right to confiscate the donated animal.
- Thank you for taking the time to go through our questionnaire!
