Max a German shepherd, was unwavering in his loyalty and devotion to his family, and they returned the favor by senselessly dumping him at the high kill, Baldwin Animal Shelter leaving him to fend for himself. The once playful, energetic dog excited to greet visitors in his kennel, is now a picture of sadness and dejection. The dog who once had every need in the world met, complete with a comfortable, cushy bed filled with all the toys in the world, now makes a cold concrete slab his home.
What’s worse than this you might ask? Max has to sit by and idly watch as younger dogs, his kennel mates to be more specific, get adopted before him. Emotions run high in the chaos, confusion, and darkness of kill shelters. It is a life not familiar to Max, and as the days roll on, his situation becomes more and more precarious. Feeling the pressure from his life hanging in the balance, Max just shut down, refusing to get up and sell himself anymore to patrons of a shelter who routinely pass him by. Max has all but given up. The 18-year-old German shepherd pup is resigned to his fate that a rescue of any sorts might not be possible, and so he waits.
