Rescue Me Week: Max

So I'm in my third day of Mayzie's Rescue Me week because I missed out on the first day.  So, without further adooooooooo, let me introduce you to Max.
Now, I told you all about Max back in September here.  Max came to Homeward Bound very sick... so he was taken to the vet and diagnosed with Parvo.  Max is 2 years old and didn't respond to the treatments... after about 2 weeks, Max finally turned around and started getting better.  They call Max the $7,000 dog because that's how much his vet bills were when all was said in done!  Most rescues would have given up on him, but we faught as hard as he did!  All you needed was one look into his soulful brown eyes, and you know you had to help him.
Max has been healthy and adoptable for well over a month now, but he still hasn't found his perfect furever home.  He's a happy guy who loves tennis balls!  He's good for his walks and great with other dogs.  Max gets really excited at the adoption clinics and doesn't paint the picture of how he normally is at home!  He's very special to everyone at Homeward Bound, so they're all patient waiting with him to find a great home that will love him and see into those soulful eyes just like they did!  You can view Max's Petfinder page HERE.
Homeward Bound is still trying to raise some money.  Along with Max's vet bill, another puppy, Willow (now known as Blue) also came down with Parvo and cost $3,000 and a lab mix, Duke, came in with elbow displasia that needed surgery costing $3,500.... all within a 3 month period!  There is a chip-in page HERE if you're able to help out any!  I know some of you have already donated, and for that, the dogs are furever grateful!

Homeward Bound is also doing an online auction to run from December 9-December 19!  Some cool things on there and a few things that you can bid on without living near me!  Check it out and see if there's anything you'd be interested in bidding on!  You can see all of the stuff HERE.

  10. You forgots the Most Impawtant thing abouts Max - his Most Magnificent ears! Heehee! Oh, gosh, he is soooo cute and what a little fighter, too. I'm awfully glad there are rescues like Homeward Bound that don't gives up on doggies just cuz they're sick or hurt. I hope they raise a kajillion green papers in their auction and my paws are crossed REAL tight for Max to find his Most Perfect Home That Ever Was soon!
