Max's Rescue Story

Rescue Committee's picture

Max had been cared for and well loved; he was healthy with no physical problems to deal with. However, he had been left to himself a little too much, mostly untrained, and had some behavioral issues; he was in need of basic training. Max adapted easily to the new routines of his foster home and was a quick study.

Two year old Max came to us in early spring, a second-hand dog, needing a forever home. He was sold when his first family moved. His second home felt overwhelmed with the his needs and of a young family, and his breeder also was unwilling or unable to care for him. Max was relinquished into the care of HFC Rescue in early 2006.

As though by design, things just seemed to fall into place: within just a month in care Max was adopted. He is now living the life of a pampered pet and is being a good companion to a wonderful active senior lady. Max is the lady’s second rescue dog. Her first rescue dog was a poodle that died recently at the age of 15 years (a testament to this lady’s devotion, love, caring and patience to her animals).

Max loves to be outside and help in the garden. He gets to take several walks a day and is welcomed in many establishments in the community. We thank this special lady for taking a chance and giving Max a Happy Ending.
