LOCATED IN THE CHICAGO AREA. Maxx is a 6 year old Poodle who was found as a stray in Chicago. He was in pretty bad shape when he came into rescue, but with some good veterinary care, he is doing great. He is very lovable and has settled right into his foster home without any problems. Maxx is a very happy little guy, yet he can be very serene. He loves to be held on your lap, or take a nap in a comfy spot. Maxx has a Hypothyroid, so he takes an inexpensive Levothyroxine pill twice a day ($4 a month). He will probably be on this for the rest of his life. All of his other lab work was 100% normal. 
He recently had a dental since coming into rescue, he lost some teeth but the rest are sparkling white. Maxx is an amazing little guy! He is affectionate, walks like a total gentleman on the leash and seems to be housebroken. He is in a belly band, but so far it has been dry. He gets along with other dogs and wags his little tail when he sees people on his walk. He does bark if we walk out of a room and he can't see us. He was home alone when I was at work and I could not hear him bark when I was outside the door, so that was good. I think he just sleeps if home alone from what I can tell. He has the cutest, most expressive face with beautiful poodle ears. He is about 8 pounds, current on all of his shots, micro chipped. and neutered. Contact Mary Palmer with Northcentral Maltese rescue 262-800-3323 to adopt this dear boy. He will give you many years of love if you do. He is being fostered in the Chicago area.
