Maddox is 4 years of age and came to us when his family welcomed triplets. He has always been high energy and somewhat nervous around new people. Because of this, his training will need to be ongoing for the rest of his life. The new owners will have access to trainers via the BarkBuster program at no charge. Maddox is worried about new people coming into his home but once he gets to know them he will love them. He will never be the dog that you can just turn loose at a dog park or go with you to visit friends. His foster family has made great strides with him---he's sharing the foster home with 4 other Bostons. He needs guidance, security and patience to help him be the charming BT he wants to be. His behavior with visitors to the foster home has continued to improve. Maddox will need to go to an owner that has a strong backgound in managing fearful dogs. We will not make any exceptions. Update: This handsome guy has found his place in the world, and a new name to go with it. Brock is now happily playing and walking with his new BT 'brother', Brody. Truly a miracle match and a testament to how hard his foster family worked to help him adjust. Yay, Brock!!
