TFTR Calendar Dog Max

Patty and MaxEach month, we’ll be highlighting one of our 2017 Toy Fox Terrier Rescue calendar dogs and our Mr. February is Max!

Max belonged to Patty, our TFTR President. He was a very special boy and taught her so many life lessons in the 7 years he was part of her life. Max was her very first rescue, she picked him up from a Humane Society in Maine when he was 7 months old. A neurologist in Maine diagnosed Max with Cerebellar Degeneration or Cerebellar Abiotrophy. With his debilitating disease, his life was not an easy one but they made the most of it.  His trips around the yard were done in the trailer attached to the lawn mower, and his trips around the lake were done in a cart Patty found at the consignment shop.  He didn’t walk well, and really not at all at the end, but he loved being on his bed with his toys, in the Xpen outside in the sunshine, or just plain snuggled up sleeping on his bed.

And Max just loved his big sister, Bailee the Boxer.  He slept with her on the couch and he stood over her as often as possible!  He didn’t like many people because he was so protective of himself with his disease, but he absolutely loved Patty’s family (her mom, dad, niece, and nephew). Patty says that Max taught her to never give up and to be happy with what we have been given. What a special and wonderful little boy, thank you for sharing his story with us, Patty!
