I picked Max up as a stray in early September in south central. He was neglected, dirty and very hungry. He happily approached me with a wagging tail and a slight limp. I took him into my car and straight to the vet. He had no Microchip and no ID. The vet estimates Max is between 7-9 years old. He is a very gentle and affectionate dog who loves other dogs and is good with kids. Since September, Max's back legs got even weaker than when I found him. The Vets confirmed he has a condition that is common in Shepherds that causes him to have nerve damage and affect his mobility. The good news is that Max is not in any pain and still remains very strong in his front body .
He goes for long walks in his new wheelchair and enjoys spending time with people and laying in the sun. Max requires someone who can lift him and carry him around on a sling if he's
not walking in his chair. He is a heavy guy and needs a strong owner who can handle him with and without his chair.
Max is currently living in a foster home waiting for his forever home. The pictures don't begin to describe what a beautiful dog Max is. Please share him with anyone who may open their hearts to give Max the life he deserves.
