Adopt-a-Pet: Maximus the Labrador-corgi mix
This goofy-looking creature is Maximus (ID# A3902086), an adoptable Labrador retriever-corgi mix at the Baldwin Park animal shelter.
Maximus' owners surrendered him at the shelter on Aug. 12, and, adorably strange-looking as he is, he's yet to find a new home. He's still young -- about a year old, give or take -- and is affectionate, playful and full of life, according to the shelter's head volunteer, Ric Browde. He loves all people and would be especially happy in an active household, Browde says. He also gets along well with other dogs.
Maximus is already neutered, so he can go home with his new owner immediately upon being adopted. At about 45 pounds, we'd call him on-the-large-side-of-medium, but he's smaller than your average Labrador.
Meet Maximus in person at the Baldwin Park shelter, located at 4275 N. Elton in Baldwin Park, or call (626) 962-3577 with his ID number for more information. Want to see more of Maximus? Check out a video of him in action after the jump.
