Adopted! Pet of the Week Max

Adopted! Pet of the Week Max

Update: Max is now in his forever home, but don't forget about his furry friends still up for adoption at Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League.

Meet our Pet of the Week Max. He's a 10-year-old West Highland Terrier/Jack Russell mix who is up for adoption at the Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League.

Here's a special message from Max:

"Hi, I'm Max. I'm an older fella that lost his way home and never made it back. I ended up here at the shelter, and now I'm looking for a new home. I know I'm not the youngest chap in the place, but I sure am cute with crooked mouth and tooth that hangs out the side. Not everyone can pull off the look, but I think I wear it well!

"I'm a calm and relaxed guy. I enjoy going for walks, but be sure we have plenty of time because I certainly like to take my time and sniff everything that crosses my nose. I should tell you that the doc here says I have a heart murmur, but not to worry because I don't need any medication for it yet.

"Because I'm in my golden years, I'd make a great companion for someone who's interested in a leisurely life. I qualify for the shelter's Senior to Senior program, and if you are 55 or older, so do you. If you adopt me, my adoption fee is waived and all you pay for is my rabies tag. Not a bad deal for a gent like me!"

Peggy's Picks is sponsored by Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League in West Palm Beach, Harmony Animal Hospital in Jupiter and Community Animal Hospital in Royal Palm Beach.
