We know how exciting it is, to adopt a rescue dog &  puppies are no exception.  We have just a few requirements for our puppies; requirements that help to insure your puppy adds years of pleasure to your home and also help to keep your puppy secure and happy.

1.  All of our very young puppies, including Maximus and his litter mates, require a physically fenced in area in which to explore safely and assist with the potty training. PLEASE UNDERSTAND, THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS TO THIS REQUIREMENT.

2.  Fassa’s Friends is comprised of all volunteers.  No one receives a paycheck, a stipend, or any type of monetary gain for their services.  That being said all have employment (of course or we’d starve), children, families, commitments just as all of you.  For this reason we ask that you refrain from emailing asking for more information regarding the puppies.  All of the information we have, is posted on each of their bios. By responding to such emails, we’re taking time that could be used to speed up Application Review, Home visit assignments, etc. to get you approved.

3. All of our young puppies such as Maximus and his litter mates are required to attend a Basic Puppy Training Course. We know many of you have the ability to train your puppy to sit, give paw, etc. and that’s great, however there is so much more to learn.  A Basic Puppy Training Course teaches you how to teach your puppy boundaries and limitations while your puppy learns the essentials necessary to live a happy, well mannered life. Puppy training also increases the bond between you, your family and your puppy. Your puppy will be exposed to new people, new situations and be able to meet and greet each appropriately whether human or canine. Those of you that are not first time pet parents, can view this training as a refresher and most likely will pick up a few tips that you’ve not had in the past.  One can never have too much knowledge therefore, THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS.  Thank you for understanding.

Meet Fassa’s Friends, Maximus! Maximus is a male, brindle, boxer mix. maximusalone He is approximately 13 weeks old, weighing in at roughly 15 lbs.  He has a natural tail and ears.

Maximus’ Mom, Mandy (also on our website), we believe is a Boxer/Lab mix.  Maximus’ father’s breed/mix is unknown. Mandy was found chained to a large tank, with Maximus and his litter mates in a box nearby.  Of 9 puppies, two were deceased when this family was found; such a rough beginning for such a young Mom and babies.

Maximus is the most shy of all of the puppies.  To help draw Maximus out of his shell. A home that has another dog, either male or female, is required for Maximus.  Following the lead of a canine brother or sister will help Maximus learn how to play, explore, and just be a happy puppy. Maximus is also a snuggle bug. photo 1He is very affectionate and loves the human touch. He, as all of his litter mates, is doing fabulous with potty training for such a young pup. Maximus is up to date on his puppy vaccines. He’s received the series of 3 puppy inoculations.
