My name is Max and I was dumped at the shelter because they wanted a puppy.  I was in terrible condition, they thought I wouldn't make it.  I was probably used as a breeding dog until I could not produce any more.  I was 13 years old when they got rid of me.  I did not know how to give or receive love and have learned that it is great to be loved.  I don't ask much out of life, but love and understanding.  Relatively speaking, I should be a healthy senior and still beautiful, but life has done this to me.
