Max is a ‘special boy who loves people’


In this week’s column dedicated to SHAK, the Alnwick-based dog-rescue charity is appealing for someone to give a loving new home to a friendly Rottweiler called Max.

SHAK founder Stephen Wylie said: “Max is a really special boy and although we shouldn’t say it, he is definitely one of the favourites at the kennels for the hugs he’s more than willing to give out.

“Max simply loves people and is very quick at making new human friends. He is a little bit selective when picking new canine friends, but he has shown through the work that we’ve done that he can get over that. In fact his best friend was big Kai that we lost recently.

“We are looking for a really understanding and Rottweiler-experienced home for Max, one that can help him through the issues he has. With a little work, he will make somebody an amazingly loyal pet.”
