NOTE FROM PET HAVEN:
Max was one of the first of our Red Lake dogs and a big black dog. He came to us in December 2007.
He looks great and is obviously well-loved along with his cat sibs and Lilly the Shep/Rottie.
NOTE FROM MAX'S HOME:
Max joined our family in early 2008. He quickly fit in with us and our two resident cats.
We finished putting up a fence that summer, and he has since staked his claim on that yard by chasing down all squirrels and rabbits that might come visit. We're thinking he's at least part greyhound - not only does he stay skinny no matter how much he eats, but he literally goes from 0 to 60 in no time flat! He practically breaks the sound barrier when he runs, but he'd much prefer to take a nap curled up near us.
We added Lilly to our family this spring - she's a German Shepherd/Rottweiler mix (we think). They are absolutely best buddies - Max taught Lilly how to squirrel chase, and Lilly reminded Max how awesome chewbones are.
We now have 120 pounds of dog tearing around our house on top of the 20 pounds of cat... two giant dogs and two stubborn cats might seem like a houseful, but we wouldn't have it any other way. Max has definitely been an incredible addition to our home. Thank you to Pet Haven for bringing him to us!
A note on the photos - the first is Max and Lilly teasing each other with a chewbone (one of their favorite games), the next is Max and my cat Pangur on the couch - they pretend not to like each other, but I think this photo proves otherwise. And the last is Max asleep in coachroach position - his ultimate position of comfort.
He's a great guy!
