Dogs Trust

COVID-19 info: Our rehoming centres are currently closed to the public but you can still adopt some of our dogs: take a look at their profiles to see which ones. We’ve set up a new rehoming process which includes social distancing measures to help keep staff and adopters safe.

Hello, I'm Maximilian

Newfoundland cross

About me

I may be a big scary looking pooch, but I’m a big softie at heart and love snuggling up with a teddy bear, or splashing around in the river.

Why I need sponsoring


  • I’m definitely a water doggy! I love to paddle and splash around in the sea and I’ll jump in the water at any chance I get!
  • I don't like having my fur brushed - it's just going to get mucky again anyway!


  • I really love life here at the Shoreham rehoming centre! I have so much fun running around with my other four-legged pals and having exciting adventures to the nearby beach so I can jump and play around in the sea and waves! My carers have been training and helping me with relationship building and confidence boosting, which is great fun – I even get rewarded with tasty treats!

Dogs you can see

You’re welcome to come and visit me, please make sure you call the Centre first on 01273 452576. I’m afraid you won’t be able to touch me because I’m a bit nervous around people I don’t know – I’ll still be so happy to see you though!
