Lovable puppy is too big to find a new home


LOVABLE puppy Max is struggling to find a new home because he is so big.
He’s only one – but he stands more than five feet two inches tall on his hind legs.
So he is spearheading a Christmas collection campaign to find pet food, new tops and blanks for needy animals.
The Pawsome Pets Christmas Appeal, organised by the Willows Veterinary Group at its branches across Warrington and Cheshire, aims to help as many abandoned, unwanted and unloved animals as possible over the festive period.
Pet lovers in Warrington are being urged to bring in unopened pet food, new toys and blankets for animals of all types to any of the Willows surgeries by Monday December 18.
The resulting collection will be distributed to various animal rescue charities across the region.
Caroline Tebbs, Warrington Animal Welfare Centre Manager, said: “Max is loved by everyone here. He has a very sweet nature. We are not 100 per cent sure of his breeding but we think he is an Akita cross and we joke between ourselves that he might be a cross with a kangaroo because he is so bouncy and full of life. There may be a bit of Husky in there too.
“He’s been with us for three months now and the kennel environment is not ideal for a young dog like him.
“Normally, the younger ones are rehomed pretty quickly and that would be the case, I am sure, if he was smaller and a bit fluffier! But I think his size has been off-putting to people and he needs a home where someone is used to handling larger dogs and is prepared to put in some work with positive reward based training.
“We are trying to do as much as we can with him here but there are limitations and he would benefit so much from an experienced home where someone could give him the time and love he really deserves. There’s no doubt in my mind that he has the potential to make somebody a wonderful companion. He just needs to be placed in the right home.”
Anyone who wants to support the Pawsome Pets Christmas Appeal should drop off items at any Willows veterinary surgery by December 18.
