Featured Rescue - Maximus the Beauceron

Today's Featured Rescue is Maximus the Beauceron. Maximus ... what a great name. I love it! Unfortunately, he's 6 years old and looking for a new home. He's black and big. I wish him all the luck in the world because he's going to need it.

I didn't know if this guy really was a Beauceron or not but after checking the pictures of this guy, you can see the double dewclaw on his back feet. He looks like a nice guy. Notice that they have a flat collar on him and that the picture they took is of him without a leash? Looks like he's looking up at a person rather than down at another dog or at the ground. There are two other pictures on Petfinder and in one he is in a sit, outside with no leash. Again ... suggests this guy is going to be AWESOME if he isn't already!! Poor old guy - a senior to boot.

Maximus is at the Adams County SPCA in Gettysburg, PA. If anyone is willing to go get him out of the pound, he would probably be ever so grateful.

Sure does make you wonder doesn't it? A Beauceron! doesn't seem like there should be enough around that there would be any needing homes.

Good Luck, Maximus! I hope your happily ever after begins immediately!

They look like a standard mutt to most people. Just like my breed.
Awesome dogs, bred for their brains, not their looks.
My favourite kind.

My husband had a farm dog that was at least half Beauceron, if not full. There was a breeder in the area at that time. Natural herder, natural guard, naturally smart. Just a nice guy. He liked to dive (I mean deep diving) in the pool.

Good luck Max!
Lived to be 18 (!!!) years old.

giantspeckledchihuahua ... totally! Personally I would LOVE to see all breeders take a more active role in rescue but that's another rant ... :)

GoLightly ... yes, they do. I bet some are classified as a Rotti/GSD mix or something. Much like the Kelpies! 18 is pretty darn old for a big dog!

Dogs in Bahrain ... As far as I can tell, he is still available.
