Chained Dog Fund Recipient- Max

On Giving Tuesday, we raised $935 to help improve the lives of outdoor chained dogs. Max is one of the dogs we are working to help.

Max is a small outdoor dog living in Jackson. He is about 2 years old and has not yet been neutered. He is on a short lead attached to his house. 

 

 IMG_9451.JPGMax has a sturdy, homemade dog house that is elevated to keep him dry. It just needed a few adjustments to make him more comfortable in the cold.

FullSizeRender_(13).jpgWith some spray insulation, we were able to seal the cracks in his home that let cold air in. We added a flexible rubber mat to the front door to keep the draft out.

Hay was added in his yard to keep his feet warm and dry, and his house was filled with pine shavings to do the same. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Max was so excited about his pine shavings that he couldn't wait to get them out of the bag!

-Our founder, Miss Elaine, has some extra fencing and we will be using it to build Max a play yard and get him off the short lead.

-As you can see, Max is in need of grooming and we are looking for a groomer to sponsor him. Let us know if you can help!

    We’ve been working with the family to see if they will surrender Max to a rescue but have not yet been successful. We won’t give up on him!

    WHOEVER OWNS THIS POOR SWEET DOG, SHOULD LET SOMEONE WHO TRULY WANTS A DOG, GIVE HIM A BETTER LIFE. WHAT IN GOD’S NAME DO THEY HAVE THIS DOG FOR, IF THEY WON’T LET IT LIVE IN THE HOUSE??? THIS LITTLE DOG IS NOT EVEN BRED TO BE AN OUTSIDE DOG. THIS IS A HORRIBLE, SELFISH OWNER, WHO HAS NO BUSINESS, RUINING THIS POOR DOGS LIFE. IF YOU WON’T MAKE HIM PART OF YOUR FAMILY, DO THE RIGHT THING AND GIVE HIM TO SOMEONE WHO WILL TRULY LOVE HIM. DOGS ARE VERY SOCIAL, BANNING THEM TO THE OUTDOORS, IS ABUSIVE AND CRUEL. WHY DON’T YOU, GO SPEND 24 HOURS OUT THERE WITH HIM, AND SEE HOW YOU LIKE IT!! DISGUSTED
