March Pet of the Month: Max Ungerecht from Pappy's SW Plano
Introducing our March Pet of the Month: Max
Max is a 2 year old German Shepherd who was adopted from the Plano Shelter as a stray. Max’s mom was looking for a new dog after her 13 year old German Shepherd mix had died 2 months prior. Because of Max’s history, he had extreme separation anxiety that Mom had to overcome. The first day he was left at home while Mom went to work, he broke through a wood fence and was found running around Plano. Luckily, he had a name tag on and Mom was notified right away! In addition to the separation anxiety, Mom also believed that he was dog aggressive. After consulting with a trainer, Mom was advised that Max was actually excited to meet other dogs, which appeared like leash aggression. That’s when Mom put Max into daycare at Pappy’s Pet Lodge! With all the help and love from the Pappy’s staff, Max has grown into a happy, confident, and VERY obedient dog. Max has continued his training with obedience classes and has come such a long way in his manners and separation anxiety!
Max comes to Pappy’s mainly for daycare, but has also taken part in our grooming and pet sitting services. Max loves to play with a bouncy ball, whether with a person or on his own! He runs around with the bouncy ball, drops it, and catches it again. It is so adorable to watch!! Max also loves to wrestle around with the other pups in daycare. The Pappy’s staff brags about how well trained he his. He always listens so well, even if he is in the middle of playing with his friends. His best (and favorite) trick is catching treats!
We have loved having Max as a regular pup at our SW Plano location. Both Max and his owner are amazing!
