A volunteer writes: I was not sure that taking Maxmax out was such a good idea. I am not a very strong person, and he is a big, solid and compact guy who looked “blue” in his kennel. High “apple’ cheeks. Such a gorgeous hunk, though. OK, lets go. I am sure he needs to do his business, stretch his legs, and having company most of the time cheers up the saddest pooches. Maxmax ended up being the highlight of my day, left for last. What a great dog, serious and a bit wary at this point but really nice, gentle and well-mannered. Maxmax was leashed in no time and strolled at a good pace around the block, meeting in a civil way other dogs, big and small, and leaving the birds in peace. He sat for me, took very delicately some treats from my hand, and accepted my caresses. I heard that he got back his liveliness this morning while in playgroup with his peers, bouncing happily with them through open pens. Maxmax was relinquished into our care through no fault of his own. He lived in harmony with many children and a small dog, and was welcoming to all. No handling issues, house trained and crate trained, a good boy when left alone in the house, playful and affectionate. Now, the cherry on the top…people make fun of me…yes, I admit…I love Barbie dolls…and you know what? Maxmax’ favorite toy is a Barbie doll!!! How cute is that? He is My Man, and I hope that after meeting him in person, he will be yours. Maxmax is at the Manhattan Care Center, already dreaming of you.
