Hi everyone, I'm Max! I have been with my foster family for a couple of weeks now and they are taking very good care of me. I am a really smart boy(so I'm told), but sometimes I get so excited that I forget to listen. My foster family says I need to learn to focus better, and I guess they are right, and given the chance I know I can do it! I am really good at the basic commands (when I'm not distracted), and I am learning new stuff every day. Of course like any young boy, I have some bad habits, but with some training, time, and understanding I will get better. Sometimes I get excited when meeting new people and jump up to say "hello", but I am learning that's not the right way to meet people. My foster family is a little concerned that I might be guarding my food, maybe I just need some time to learn to trust, we will keep everyone posted on how I am doing..My veterinary exam went great, and I passed with flying colors, didn't even need any shots, yeh!! I am on the bigger side for a golden but carry my weight well, and the vet says I am in great shape! Right now I am living with a cat who's name is Max too! Imagine that! It took a few days for me to warm up to Max the cat, but now we are doing fine. Well, that is all for now, I can't wait to learn more so I can make some family very happy, oh, and I'm told I am smart and handsome!
