We brought Maxie home on March 4, 2010. She was approximately 6 months old and had been surrendered for jumping the fenced back yard! We have never had a problem with her running away and she is such a joy to have around. She has a ton of energy and loves to play with other dogs and the kids. She really loves balls and will fetch them all day if we had the energy. We hope to add another dog to our family soon!
