Maximus at 1 year old!!

Maximus is a handsome guy!! I couldn’t be happier with how he’s turned out! My kids love him dearly. My daughter and I are afraid of the dark and whenever we get scared she says mom it will be ok Maximus will protect us!!!

Bryce loves playing with Maximus and giving him treats! Maybe too many treats!

Yes folks Maximus is a father! We have best friends who are also shepherd lovers and we have play dates for our kids and dogs!  On one sunny afternoon in November we stopped by to visit and let Maximus out of the truck(not knowing Sasha was in heat) and we'll I'm sure you know what happened next! So he has been to see his puppies and licks Sasha on the head and is so sweet to her! He's a gentlemen! Needless to say our play dates will have to be planned better!

Maximus my protector at 9 months!

Maximus is such a good and protective dog! I was out running and I always take him with me..when a big black neighborhood stray started coming at me barking(seriously think he was crazy) and I fell and busted my knee. I thought Maximus was gonna run away after him but he stood right in front of me barking and growling at him until I got up and never left my side! Not to mention scared the neighborhood bully away!  One proud mama!

Maximus is almost 7 months old and is so big! He is an amazing dog and is so smart! My husband and daughter will walk real far and we put him in the cage and when we let him out he goes crazy sniffing and never even looks up and will sniff out their exact steps until he finds them!

Isabella loves playing chase. She runs around the yard as fast as she can and he chases her. Running off balled up energy

Maximus after lots of rain and he jumped and played all in the puddles. Maximus loves playing fetch with his duck. He will go get it and bring it back every time and its so funny because I will be waiting for him to bring it back and when he's done playing he will take his duck and go put it in his cage. Like ok I'm done I'm putting my toy up!
