Maximus is a Belgian Shepherd Tervurn. This breed is a high energy, working dog.
Maximus was trapped after being loose for 7 months. He willingly and eagerly awaited the trap to be setup so he could be taken off the street. Maximus is skittish, but gentle once you gain his trust. He will need a foster/adopter who is familiar with the shepherd breed. He is a real charmer and will make a wonderful addition to your home,once he has some basic training.
ADOPTION FEE: The adoption fee includes vaccinations, bordetella, deworming, rabies, Microchip including a lifetime registration and spay/neuter.
PUPPIES Texas State law requires that we sterilize any animal adopted through this agency. This will normally occur between 5 and 6 months at one of our approved veterinarians at the expense of the rescue.
Children under 8 years old often are not a good match for our puppies and dogs. In order to protect both, your child and our rescued dogs/puppies from harm, we seldom if ever adopt to families with young children.
Approval: You will be notified via email once your application is approved. Once notified, we will schedule a meet and greet at one of our approved locations. Thank you for considering a rescue!
Sponsors: Please Consider Sponsoring one of our Rescued Dogs.

The adoption fee includes vaccinations, Bordetella, de-worming, rabies, spay/neuter and microchip. There is a an additional $12.99 fee for Home Again for a lifetime registration of the microchip.
Puppies cannot be adopted outside of the Houston area until they are spay/neutered after they are 4 months old.
It is against the law in the State of Texas for a rescue not to be sterilized so we have to make sure it gets completed and that we have record of it.
NOTE: In our bios, we provide information based on our volunteer's experience with a particular dog; such as temperament, training, and ability to get along with others.
AARF is a 501(c)3 Non Profit, all breed, no kill organization. Our group is always in need of donations in order to continue to give the needed medical care to our rescues. Adoption fees do not begin to cover all of the medical costs. Any donation, no matter how small is a big help and is greatly appreciated. Please help us to continue to help them. Thank you.
