Max is a 4 year old male gold sable long coat German Shepherd who is neutered, microchipped but vaccinations are out of date.

Max is a gorgeous but unpredictable boy. On entering the home he barked immediately and bared his teeth at assessor. Owner put Max on lead while the assessor was filling in forms, all the time they were doing this Max remained at his owner's side. When finished the assessor asked the owner to let go the lead and they were armed with treats which Max was very inquisitive at first and then went back to the owner. When offered treats he accepted eagerly and after a while would sit on command and accept treats very gently. Assessor took Max out for a walk armed with treats. At first Max was confident on his walk loving to sniff everything but he became very alert when leaving the estate. The Assessor's husband met them out on the walk and at first he wagged his tail but as soon as the husband got about 2 feet away Max lunged at him, barking and growling and showing his teeth. Assessor told Max to leave firmly and he obeyed. Assessor's husband continued to walk alongside at a distance throwing treats to Max and this didn't seem to worry Max. He passed a few dogs on his walk and although he was very interested he did not show any aggression to them and it appeared that he wanted to play with them. By the end of the walk Max let assessor's husband walk beside him taking treats nicely. As assessor tried to take Max back home he wanted to go with their husband.

Max was extremely obedient, with treats of course, but only rewarded when he responded and was an absolute poppet for assessor and extremely adorable. However, on returning home his owner took his lead and when the assessor offered him a treat after he sat nicely he then bared his teeth, growled and barked, also lunged and bit the assessor on the hand. Max's owner asked his partner to take the lead and Max was okay for a few minutes then lunged aggressively again. Thankfully did not bite again.

Max is a stunner but very much a Jekyll and Hyde personality. He is not exercised enough and his owner is nervous of him around his children and other people. He has no stimulation and is only a youngster himself.

Max growls at the younger children in the house and has bit the young daughter on the hand but left no marks, he growls at the older children if they go near his food. Out on a walk he will walk up to other dogs and have a sniff but shows no aggression to them. He will not be rehomed with cats and he will bark at horses out on walks.

He travels well in the boot of the car and will jump in and out the car no problem. He is good left in the house but he can open doors to get out. He will bark at birds in neighbours' gardens and he will bark at people when they get too close on walks. He can be anxious when eating and growls so is usually left alone when eating.

Max does need to be groomed but he dislikes being handled too much by people other than the owner, he does mouth when trying to groom him. He dislikes going to the vets and is muzzled when there. He does know his basic commands.

Max is currently in Andover.
