Meet cute Max who is pet of the week at the Rancho Coastal Humane Society. He’s a 2-year-old, 61-pound, male, Shar Pei/Rhodesian Ridgeback mix.

playing in his yard or going for a walk to use up some of his energy. Because Max is a big, active dog, he’ll do best in a home with no smaller children or anyone who is frail.

Max’s previous owners say he’s good with other dogs, house trained, and energetic. He loves to cuddle and play in the yard. He was transferred to Rancho Coastal Humane Society through the Friends of County Animal Shelters (FOCAS) program.

The $145 adoption fee for Max includes medical exams, vaccinations, neuter, and registered microchip. For more, information call 760-753-6413, visit Rancho Coastal Humane Society at 389 Requeza St. in Encinitas, or log on to
