Hi Folks-

My name is Max and people say that I am cute as a button, because….well…. I am! I am a pampered, very well cared for 10 year old and still have a lot of sass in my attitude and pep in my step.

Due to circumstances beyond my control, I find myself in the position of searching for a new human who would enjoy a constant companion to spoil. That is the job that gives me pleasure and I do it well. I will sit by your side on the sofa at all times. If you are busy somewhere else in the house, I will curl up in my dog bed nearby or follow you so you know that I am hard at work and you don’t miss me. If I get a little bored, I amuse myself with squeaky, squeaky, squeaky toys. I love squeaky toys! If that is a sound that you find annoying, you need not apply.

Don’t get me wrong. I do not merely lie around the house. I enjoy an adventure as much as the next pup. I have fun taking little walks several times a day and exploring nature. I ride well in a car, so I can accompany you wherever you go. It makes me very unhappy when you leave me at home alone, but I will behave and will greet you expecting hugs the minute you return.

This probably all sounds pretty good to you, but I should let you know that I am not perfect. My vision is not so great because of my cataracts, but it doesn’t get me down. I still have my hearing which is exceptional (even for a dog) as you might have guessed from my photo. I require structure in my routine as I must be fed measured portions at the same times each day, followed shortly after with insulin. This is a big commitment from my human, but I make it very easy. I am patient for my meals and I do not fuss or complain about taking my shots.

So if you are a committed human with an uncluttered schedule, looking for a devoted companion to fill your home with puppy love and don’t mind the sound of squeaky toys, you just might be the person for me.
