Maxell: Wisconsin Humane Society introduced its pet on September 15

This week’s featured pet from the Wisconsin Humane Society is Maxell: this 4.5-year-old pup is the true definition of a gentle giant, weighing in at 150 pounds. Although Maxell can be nervous when he first meets people, once he warms up he never wants the petting to stop.

This shy but gentle dog is available for adoption at the Racine campus of the Wisconsin Humane Society. If you have room in your heart and home for a loving big boy, please visit The Humane Society’s adoption page today to meet Maxell!

Our featured pet, Maxell

The Racine campus is open for animal adoptions on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.
