We were lucky to have rescued Max at 1.5 years old, and for the next seven and a half years he was our sweet boy. Skittish at first, he had a bad skin infection due to allergies and almost no fur on his body, and he threw up his meals almost constantly. Several 40 pound bags of food later and after finally finding the perfect anti fungal dog shampoo we finally took care of what was ailing him. He was healthy and happy and loved to eat and sleep for a living. He was just happy to be near with us and was a very loving and laid back dogue. We wished he would live forever, however after a truly awful New England winter his old bones and joints had lost their strength and we said goodbye to him while his dignity was still intact. We will always miss him and look back at our happy memories of him and smile.
