    Max is home!

    We all are so thankful for Jackie and her family, for saving Max! They are enjoying their first day together, he had a fresh bath and he's doing well! Needless to say, he was pretty matted and nasty, when he met his new mama! Jackie told him when they left the shelter, "you're never going, back"! What love!!!:wub::wub::wub: Now, we just pray that his 20lb kitty sibling, will accept him!lol Now, where else can we help, a furry friend?:dunno:

    So far so good!! Max is adjusting well! Good nite sleep after a ride to the PCB airport to pick up an auntie! Pix's to follow tonite! He is beautiful, so sweet and well behaved! We are lucky to have him!! And, G, his new cat brother is taking it all in stride so far. Jessie, my other cat, has accepted him with open arms!!

    That is fantastic. My son's Shih Tzu gets along with the two cats my son has. They play together all of the time. I cannot wait to see Max's pictures tonight. Wonder how much difference there is between a Lhasa Apso and a Shih Tzu, couldn't be much. But this really puts me in a great mood. Thanks for keeping us updated.

    I'm jealous. You have gotten to meet Max already. But I'll settle for cute pictures I guess. :wub: I'm sure he is as cute as his pictures. We will be down this weekend coming up, and are not that far from Pt. Washington, but oh well, I'm just happy he is no longer at the pound and in a good home. :D

    Maxster report! He is doing great---just a little dust up with the big boy brother G The Cat! He is adjusting well, learning to enjoy lots of walks!! A happy story for us all especially Max. What a precious boy. Can not imagine someone throwing him away!

    What a great picture. Boy is he a big boy. I love this picture. He looks like he is settling in nicely. Thanks for the picture and report. He looks great. Taking on the cat periodically will be a challenge to him. Barns likes to stir up my son's cats on occasion, despite that they really like him, and he them. What a happy ending. I love that you are calling him Maxster, that is cute.

    Jackie,

    You and your family are such a blessing, to the Maxter!:wub: The memories to follow, will be magical and so fun!:clap:I've rescued and placed many wonderful furry friends, but, being involved in this, was one of the most memorable!:wave:

He is riding all over Walton and Bay Counties TCB'ng! Dian, thank you again for posting this on Sowal. I would not have this guy now if not for you! What an angel you are!!

    Another Max update: Max is the sweetest dog, and sooo smart. There is no way he is aggressive enough to bite or hurt unwillingly. He is so careful with my little girl cat Jessie who is old and fragile. He is alert and protective yes, but not aggressive. He just wants to please. Obviously, his former people were just too lazy or preoccupied to keep him. People, please wake up, abused and neglected dogs will bite. Love your babes and they will love you back in such a big way. But if you don't want to the devote the time for training, affection and concern that dogs deserve, don't put on them in your way.

    Max is getting very comfortable with us and the property. G the cat is just not warming up to him at all. He is a big alpha boy who is used to being big baby. We are being patient with them both and know that it will eventually be tolerable. Max is a happy boY!!! So are we with him!!!

    Great point!

    Sounds like the former people (obviously NOT family) made things up about him, probably to make themselves feel less guilty, or even look better!:bang:I meant to tell you, Jackie, your smoky baby is as beautiful, as the Maxter!:wub:

    It's bad for older dogs, most people won't adopt them. River Otter where are you? But , if anyone can find a home for them, you can. Let's find a home for the two retrievers.
