Please welcome the abso-blimmin-lutely adorable Max
Max is just 8 months old, and has been signed over by his owner due to a change of circumstances.
Although he was entire when he arrived (ie Max hasn't hadn't his big boys op) it was obvious that was suffering from cryptorchidism - a birth defect which affects the testicles, and which often leads to cancer in later life. So Max was booked straight into the vets for surgery. If Max ever planned on having puppies he can put those thoughts behind him now!
Max doesn't seem in the least bit bothered by his recent change of circumstances. He's still just a puppy, and was keen to find out what was in the toy box
Not impressed with oinky pig!
Max likes his toys soft and squishy!
That's the way Max!
He was also very interested to find out what was on the menu at the hotel du dogues....
Ahhhhhh Burns! That'll do nicely!

I had the privilege to walk Max last week and my goodness, he is such a friendly dog! He definitely had some training, he can do a nice sit for a treat and he has been greeting every single dog with the most lovely manners, not the slightest bark came out of his mouth. He is a good walker on the lead, pulling slightly to start off with as he was so happy to stretch his legs and then, what can I say, he was great, he loves walking and he is definitely up for a good walk! He will be a loving, fun and well rounded dog for his future family. Good luck Max!!! x
Maxy has stolen my heart for sure! I do have an affinity for "funny looking" dogs, but this boy has a great personality too! We've walked him twice now and had a great experience both times. He is very entertaining and surprisingly intelligent for his size/breed. Impeccable at answering to his name and superb to play different puppy games with. His thing today seemed to be collecting all the sticks on the way to the park and back, regardless of size! We think he might be teething, after all he is only a baby. We didn't let him chew the sticks too much as we were concerned he might get splinters from them (hope he has some nice rope toys in his kennel?). He did take every opportunity to put his stick down and chew it, but I was very impressed to see how fast he caught up on the fact that if we took the stick away from the floor and gave it back to him in his mouth, that meant we wanted to go and he should carry it along. He only protested that decision the first two times, but would automatically stand up and start walking as soon as we did that trick thereafter. Struck me as a fast learner!
I will leave the photos to speak for themselves... Just adorable!
