Dog Story: Hi everyone! My name is Max and I think I’m quite special and unique. I’m pretty sure you will think I am too once you get to know me! I am 3.5 years old and a big strong boy! The first three years of my life, I was a REAL hunter. I traveled all over with my dad hunting birds like pheasant, quail, woodcock, snipe and grouse, and my dad said I was his best hunter, better than my other 3 Brittany and Setter siblings! Sure, sometimes I would crowd the woodcock but they are tough and wily game birds! My foster mom calls me a goofy boy and says my face looks like Phantom of the Opera with my white and orange face plus lots of adorable freckles!My family got me as a puppy and I was their beloved house pet and hunting partner. I even went to training camp to hone my bird-hunting skills, but as a Brittany it comes naturally to me! One day, some changes began in my home and I started having some anxiety, and my dad knew it was time to send me to this new place with ABR. At this new house I have two Britt foster sisters that are so fun to play with. There are so many toys here too! I love to snuggle with people and think I’m a big lap dog. But I really love to be outside to run and chase anything with wings, even dragonflies and butterflies! You could say that I am the best of both worlds! Hopefully someday soon, I will have a family that loves to snuggle, and maybe hunt too. Max’s owners got him as a puppy and he was a treasured family companion. Max was professionally hunt trained along with frequent bird hunting trips with his owners across the country. He has lived with dogs, kids and an old cat and is housetrained and crate trained. Several months ago Max’s human mom passed away suddenly, and with all the changes in the household he began to show some anxiety wanting to protect the youngest grandchild. Max’s dad knew it was best for him to find a new home where he could start fresh from the sadness of losing his mom. Max has been a delightful addition at his ABR foster home, getting along well with his Brittany foster sisters and hunting every Georgia critter he can find! He will be a great companion for an active family ready to keep up with his energy level and drive and would make a great buddy for outdoor adventures and hunting. Max is a fit and healthy boy at 45 pounds, neutered, up to date on shots, microchipped, heartworm negative and on preventative.
