max - A Petfinder Happy Tail

Adopted Dog

Adopted from ARC.

I decided one day to visit a local rescue. I went to a close one and found Max a beautiful shepherd mix. I new I wanted him but my apartment wouldn't allow dogs. He was adopted and I was so happy. Later that week I went back and there was Max again with his beautiful face. He was different, but excited to see me. I decided I wanted him--got a doctors note for a therapy dog and brought him home. At first he acted like I was just temporary but it took about six months for him to realize he was all mine. Now he is happy constantly wearing a smile. He is such a good boy. He is graduating from a dog training course. And smiles to this day!
