Cindy's underdog this week is Maxie, a very loving girl who was rescued from a high-kill shelter in Tenessee. She is looking for her forever home out in the country.

Maxie is a 1 1/2-year-old female mixed breed. She is brilliant and eager to please. She knows: sit, down, and shake. She is excellent on a leash, she's housebroken, but she's not good around cats!

Maxie was surrendered to the Tennessee shelter following her owner's passing. After waiting for 4 months, she was adopted by an older couple, but she was returned due to her high energy level. She was still a young puppy at the time. She came to the Herkimer County Humane Society on September 23, 2020.

Maxie lovers her Nylabones, the bigger, the better! She is a tough chewer! She does very well in public places with lots of noise. She's good around most dogs after a slow introduction. She tends to be skittish around men at first, which could be due to her past experiences.

Please meet Maxie at the Herkimer County Humane Society 514 State Route 5S Mohawk, New York. (315) 866-3255. She has been altered and up to date on her shots.

The Herkimer County Humane Society, founded in 1913, is a non-profit, 501c3 charitable organization dedicated to providing shelter and safe haven for stray dogs and cats until their forever homes are found. For more information, please contact the Herkimer County Humane Society at (315) 866-3255.
