Max was once a street dog who was rescued from a life of extreme neglect. The Sidewalk Specials took him in, and he was full of scabies and as thin as possible. You could easily see his ribs. But he would have to be kept separate from the other dogs because of the contagious scab condition.
The poor dog howled and cried all day in his kennel. He knew he wanted love in life, even though he had never experienced it before.
And a gentle woman appeared to Max, it was love at first sight!
Max and the cats would have to learn to get along during the initial adaptation period, but now the good boy is so happy and healthy and smiles in his sleep! That’s incredible.
