Max is about 18 months old. He was adopted from a shelter at 6 months and lived with an elderly woman for 10 months. He was largely untrained. Upon her committal to assisted living, he was adopted by a friend of a friend. At that new house, he got increasingly stressed, started exhibiting resource guarding behavior. They were in the process of hiring help, but one night, they tried to move his food after setting it down and he bit his owner causing the need for hand surgery. The next night, he bit again.
When not around food, Max is very sweet and loving. He enjoys car rides, walks, playing in the backyard and snuggling on the couch.
