MAX – A1089593
Gone - 9-21-2016 Brooklyn
***GONE 09/21/16*** JUST ONE WEEK!!! THAT’S ALL THE “TIME” IT TOOK FOR MAX’S OWNER TO REALIZE THAT THEY HAD “NO TIME” FOR HIM! He’s just 2 years old and has lived with children and said to be “gentle” around them. He will need an EXPERIENCED new owner…and if you do offer to take him… PLEASE…keep him longer than a week!! Give him at least the same amount of time that it takes to break in a pair of shoes! Because MAX has already felt the sting of shoes to his behind…and it shouldn’t have to happen… ESPECIALLY, SINCE YOU CAN HELP IT!
