Max (formerly Cuervo)

CuervoI adopted the dog formerly known as Cuervo on March 30, 2013.  He has since been renamed Maximilian, or “Max.”  When I met him at the shelter, I was told he was a breeder dog, and he was very, very timid.  I had to give him several treats and be very very gentle to allow him to let me hold him when I first met him.

I am happy to report that Max has completely come out of his shell. He walks on
a leash, has a healthy appetite, and is a cuddle monster! He likes hiding his new toys around my home, but his favorite thing to do is snuggle. He regularly runs from my bedroom into the living room, jumps onto the couch, and immediately flips over for a belly rub. Sometimes he wags his tail so feverishly, I think he’s going to dislocate a hip!

I am so lucky to have found such a wonderful companion. We walk together, cuddle together, sleep together (yeah I broke my own rule on that pretty quickly), and even shop together!

Thank you for all that you do to find great pets good homes. I am so lucky to
have found the pet of my dreams- Max is a perfect match for me. ~ Jennifer I.

    You saved more than his tiny little body…. He’ll be your best friend from here on.

    Your and Max’s story warms my heart. I am so very happy that Max (aka Cuervo) found such a wonderful home, and that you found a new best friend. It makes me feel good to hear that Max was able to get beyond his past and is now enjoying his little life to the fullest. Congratulations to you both!
