This week's adoptable dog is Max.
Max is a 5-year-old Doberman Pinscher mix that weighs right around 49 pounds.
He came to the shelter from Manatee County Animal Services to help find him a home.
Max is a very outgoing, playful, and strong boy who's still very much a puppy in nature.
This means he will need his future mom or dad to be a strong, experienced owner who will teach him manners that will polish this diamond in the rough, and really make him shine.
Max can go home to a household with children 12 years or older.
