Max's Story...
Updated: 4/3/17

Meet Max!

If there is a sweeter 4-year-old Black Labrador than Max, we've never met him. He is gentle, calm and very lovable. He gets along great with kids and other dogs. He is leash trained and housebroken. Max was previously abandoned by his owner but despite his shaky upbringing, he is a trusting loyal companion and would make an excellent family pet!

This is a COURTESY POSTING for The Robert T. Brentnall Pawsibilities Foundation.

His original owner abandoned him. A roommate continued for feed him for about the next year and a half. Then, around February 6th, the roommate moved out. Some neighbors continued feeding him every other day, but the neighbors shortly moved out as well and we had no way of knowing if Max had access to food and water. He was alone on the property for 2 weeks.

After seeing a plea for him posted on January 23rd about how he was left alone and needed care, a rescue network friend of Life 4 Paws drove out to the property to find he was already alone. Max was very timid, but quickly won over by chicken nuggets and they were able to get him in the car. He had been living as an outside dog on a very large property where he roamed between the two houses. He very easily could have left the property, as it wasn’t fenced in, but diligently stayed even when everyone abandoned him. Max is a very sweet boy who just loves attention.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Max, a Canoga Park Labrador Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever for sale in Canoga Park, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Canoga Park.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Canoga Park already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Canoga Park breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Labrador Retriever breeders who help with Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Canoga Park paves the way for another one to be saved.
