Max is an approximately 2 1/2-year-old pale apricot Shih-Poo or small Cockapoo. He was rescued with Teddy, who could be his son, and who is a darker apricot color. They were rescued along the freeway and were so horrifically matted that a vet clinic shaved them down so that their skin could breathe.

Max and Teddy’s vaccinations are current, they are neutered and have microchips. Max is house-trained but needs to be taken outside regularly. They are currently staying at a place who keeps them outside, but they need to be house dogs.

Max is really sweet and is the protector of Teddy, but is not aggressive. He is shy, gentle, affectionate and is playful. He is on the nervous side, probably from being bounced so much in his short life.

Teddy gets along with other dogs and is good with cats. He is very playful once he feels comfortable and safe. Max is very attached to Teddy so a home together would be best. Max and Teddy will make wonderful companions for a calmer home with no children.

Max and Teddy are being offered for adoption through Animal Friends Connection, a Lodi nonprofit organization dedicated to helping companion animals since 1990. For more information about Max and Teddy, call 209-368-1761.
