#ShelterSunday: Loyal Max

Maximus2

Maximus was a "Katrina dog," homeless after the devastating hurricane and adopted by David when he retired from the Navy. David's partner, Janice, says you can set your clock by Max's daily routine, and that it helped David acclimate to retired life.

Max came to Emancipet's East Austin clinic for a nail trim, which Janice explained was overdue because she had recently been recovering from neck surgery. While she was recuperating, Max was a constant presence, resting at her feet- sensing that she needed comfort.

A retiree's life is perfect for laid-back, loyal Max, who loves to sunbathe in the back yard. Janice put their relationship perfectly- "Max has a great home, and we have a great friend."
