This week’s featured pet from the Wisconsin Humane Society is Maxell: This 4 ½-year-old pup is the true definition of a gentle giant, weighing in at 150 pounds. Although Maxell can be nervous when first meeting people, once he warms up, he never wants the petting to stop.

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

Our Featured Pet, Maxell
