Maddox is a sweet boy! He loves to be a part of the family. Maddox is happiest when he gets exercise and he really loves the outdoors (though he doesn't like to enjoy them alone). He thinks he is a lap dog even though he weighs over 70 pounds. He self regulates his food which allows us to leave out his dish and not worry about him overeating. He is great with kids, and loves to sleep next to you, but also does great sleeping in a crate or just out in the living area. He is crate trained, walks well on a leash, and loves people! He has been trained to give kisses by saying "nice puppy" and will hop in the grass while on a walk if you tell him "up" and then "wait." (He does this when cars come down the street so as to keep everyone safe). He loves to give hugs by resting his head on your shoulder when you hug him, and he actually needs them throughout the day. We are convinced he thinks he is a human. He even enjoys wearing dog clothes! He needs to be in a home where he is the only dog as he just doesn't like sharing his humans. He is really such a special guy. The family that adds him to their home will be so very lucky to have him.
