Maxx Pocket Bully DofB 2021 Brighton W/E foster

Current Status: Available
Maxx's Story: was found abandoned and unclaimed within a council pound. Rescue Remedies offered a Rescue place saving his life. Maxx is neutered, chipped, and fully vaccinated. Maxx came into our Rescue Centre nr Gatwick whilst awaiting his new family.

If you are interested in rehoming one of our dogs, the first step is to complete and submit our ONLINE HOMING QUESTIONNAIRE. We do not discuss dogs without a homing questionnaire submission. You must be ready and we will only contact you if we have a suitable dog. For more detailed information, please see our Homing Process.

Please support our work and help our long stay dogs: Our minimum Adoption Donation is £250 (£400 for pup under 1 yr old). This supports our continuing rescue work and is non-refundable. We exist solely due to the goodwill and donations of our supporters and volunteers. Our dogs need supportive families who will offer them patience, time and tolerance whilst they settle in their new homes. Our Rescue offers all our dogs back-up for life.

Please note: Dog laws have changed, with zero public tolerance and prejudice against bull breeds and terriers in particular. Our Rescue asks new owners to keep their dog on a lead in public spaces and manage and support its encounters with new dogs and people, so as not to place the dog's life at risk. Destruction and Control Orders are commonplace nowadays.
Max's progress through our Rescue is below.
We work with our dogs, who often reveal an evolving picture and positive skills as they build trust.

Original referral information: 02.09.23 Other kennels: MAX approx 2 years old. He is 18" to the shoulder.

Maxx came into us as was signed over by is owner as he scratched a child in the house. During his stay with us he has been very well behaved with all members of staff and loves the vet.

He is slightly strong to walk on a lead but loves running around the paddock. He is very dog reactive and other animals (we have goats on site)
He has shown no rebound aggression when pulling him away from other dogs (animals).

Maxx came come into RescueRemedies on the 6th November 23

I’ve taken Maxx out a few times now and he’s such a sweet affectionate little boy. He’ll give you a lovely greeting in the kennel and is then super easy to harness and take out. He does pull a little on the lead but this will be easily trainable I think he’s just pleased to be out and about.
He’s good with traffic, super friendly to any humans that pass and generally just a joyful little sausage. I’m told he can be a little dog reactive but has walked beautifully with Hector and Tyler and I know uncle Tony has also had a lovely walk with him and Freya. Maybe dog selective is a better description!

First meeting with Maxx today and what a great dog. There wasn't many people or dogs around so don't know what he's like on the social side of things. He trots along very nicely with slack leads and seems very friendly. His pictures don't do him justice as he's much cuter in the flesh.

I have been walking MAXX since he came to RR and this scrumptious dog is getting better every time we go out !

Basically, Maxx is a head, attached to a lump of gorgeous muscle !!!!! and ickle legs! love4.gif

When he arrived it was decided to muzzle train him as he seemed a tad under-socialised !

Although he doesn't like the muzzle, once we changed to a different style of muzzle, he accepted it and his behaviour showed a remarkable change. No longer did he try to rip it off, he just walked very well with it which was wonderful to see thumbs.gif

ON the socialising front we have introduced him to most of our bull type breeds from Staffie's to AM Bullies, AM Bulldogs, Mastiff types etc and has been on many a walk with not much more than a quick lunge and deep chesty rumble ( he doesn't bark !) as a way of introduction and then off we trot for a nice jolly wander.

He sometimes pulls strongly, especially to play catch up but settles down very well and does quite like taking pole position.
Once rolling he generally ignores the other dogs and enjoys himself.

As you can see, this boy is absolutely GORGEOUS!!!!!!!
I took him for a 3 night foster to my 87 year old Aunt whose previous RR visitor was a certain Princess FREYA, who she absolutely adored !!!!!! love4.gif

Maxx was her next request and when he turned up she was besotted with him and has asked me to bring him back at the next available opportunity !

At one point when I went to put his muzzle on for a walk, he promptly said no thanks and jumped straight into her lap !!!!!
He probably weighs as much as her ! but she loved it 0002.gif]
During his stay he visited and met other family members to around a total of 12 people, and everybody was gobsmacked at that combination of beauty, muscle and goofy character love4.gif
I like cousin Paul

He was the star of the show with whoever he met !
Whilst on our numerous walks around Essex, it was noticed that his at heel walking was improving greatly, sometimes half of his walk or more ! and also when not at heel but just ahead, was still mostly a loose lead, which made me so proud of him.

From observing in both a rescue and now home situation it seems that his "issue" is one of nervousness.

He was very attentive to every noise from a door shutting or bell ringing on the telly and the noise from the local football pitch !
Once reassured he settled down again, so maybe lots of various socialising may help the wonderful boy !? More on the next foster for sure

His toilet habits in the garden were extremely good and "accurate" to say the least. A fave PnP area was quickly found and during the night, apart a few early morning wake ups he did not once have any events in the house. bravo1.gif

He made lots of friends at the local burger van, all admiring his looks and fine gym honed body !

Aunty loves him to bits and was loving getting him to sit for a treat and also give paw.

Forgive me if I've put a lot of pics and vids on this post, but this boy is absolutely wonderful ! and deserves a loving home as soon as possible!!

He, as all rescues, just needs a little tweak to get him to get him to a totally well- rounded dog. This, will be achieved, as Myself and his Aunt Simone say with:


This boy is sooooooo close to that breakthrough and will no doubt be whisked away very soon! wheyhey.gif
In the meantime, I am very happy to help him on his journey, both at RR and at fostering.

I have been told off many times by my |Aunt to "leave him alone", but sorry I could not resist kissing and cuddling with him at every opportunity, especially at bedtime where he doubles up as the best hot water bottle you can get!
I fits the arnchair too !

I fell for him when I first met him, but once in a home situation he just burrowed his way into my heart love4.gif

Little Maxx is a beautiful dog. We've been out a few times now and he's very easy to be around. I took a short video of us walking by the road. Traffic and a bit of noise don't seem to bother him at all.

What a lovely boy Maxx is!!
I’ve been introduced to him before and said hello a couple of times but from the moment I was in the kennel he was affectionate and confident.

Harness went on easily and we were on our way, a little tentative in the deeper muddy areas but it didn’t stop his stride, very easy on the lead for the whole walk but picked up the pace when he saw a squirrel run just in front of him

Back to the kennels for a good belly rub and head scratch!
