Today, we have a very special Happy Beginnings story to share with you. It’s one filled with the glitter of the Hollywood lights and even a red carpet! The story starts off pretty sad, with little Max abandoned and alone. He was found as a stray in a field and then brought to an animal shelter in a part of California where animal homelessness is not uncommon. But what is uncommon is Max’s amazing turn-around. We’re talking a story fit for the big screen. You see, little Max not only found love when he was adopted by Kelly – an advertising executive at Siltanen & Partners, a firm that works with Coldwell Banker. He also found himself starring in a commercial for Coldwell Banker’s newest passion project, Homes for Dogs, which will make its television debut this Sunday, February 22nd during the Academy Awards! Yes, that’s right – Max will be starring in a commercial during the Oscars! How’s that for awesome? Kelly and Max 04
Here’s what Kelly has to say about her loving relationship with Max:

“I found him on as I was looking for a male dog to rescue/adopt of that sort of breed and age. As soon as I saw his picture I just knew he was the pet for me. I contacted the Dexter Foundation and arranged to go and meet him in person the next week at a local pet adoption event. I fell in love with him immediately…we soon fell into a routine and it’s been bliss ever since. Now, I couldn’t imagine life without him. He comes to work with me almost every day and has become part of the S&P family. He has a spring in his step every day now that he is in a healthy, loving environment he can truly call home. It was kismet that we came into each other’s lives and some people inquire, “who rescued whom?!!”

We’re so happy for Max and Kelly and we can’t wait to see his adorable face on TV this Sunday! Watch the Oscars on Sunday and be on the lookout for Max in the new Coldwell Banker commercial. Then, let’s hit Twitter together to talk about it using the #HomeRocks hash tag.  You can also get a sneak preview of the commercial on the Coldwell Banker site (and learn more about why pet adoption is important to them!)
