Title: Max
Post by: Angela on November 23, 2007, 04:15:24 PM
Max is an eight month old black and tan male dobe who is at present in a foster home.

He has come into rescue due to his owners illness. He is not used to children under twelve years or cats.
He's a nervous unsure boy who needs kind but firm handling to enable him to reach his full potential.

Do you have the time and patience to help Max adjust to a normal life? He has seen very little in his eight months and would benefit from being an only dog, or possibly living with an older bitch. He just needs someone to show him what life is all about.

If you feel you can give Max a loving home and training, please fill in an enquiry form.


Update 7/1/08

Max is now enjoying life with his new family.

Update from Little Nell, Max's carer.

We are very happy to report that Max has a new home. It took us a little by surprise, but in true dobie style Maple and Max did all the work, with just a touch of fate thrown in too.

Max has a fantastic family to guide and take him forward. He will have 7 acres to romp around in and a selection of larger animal friends too, with woods full of birds, rabbits etc...and a sofa to call his own- when the family are in bed! His new owners also work from home so we could not have asked for more for the lad.

 It was hard to say goodbye to Max, and there might have been some dust in mine and dh's eyes making them water...but we know that he will have a grand ol' time. When we left he was settling in nicely and had already bagged a warm spot by the wood burner.

His new family say that after just one night Max has fitted in so well it seems like he has always been there. He is enjoying his walks and getting used to his new surroundings.

Big lad has a few more humans to wrap around his paw- he is pretty good at it too!!
Nell, DH and Maple


Update 7/3/08

Well, big lad continues to do DRA proud...he has settled in like a dream, and has now got used to the horses...and the rabbit...and...the farm cat. His family cannot imagine ever not having him.

He runs through the woods and gorse, but comes back to check where the slowcoach humans are! Max1 will often stay outside- in the cold- with his new dad, watching him work, rather than go inside to the warmth of the woodburner. Saying that, he does still like to hog it, belly up and a toy in his mouth...as stressed as it gets!!

Update 08/02/15

We are sad to report that Max passed suddenly surrounded by his special people...
Rest gently big lad...
