Max crossed the rainbow bridge today, 12/31/2021. Max, you will be missed so much.

Max is all grown up. He's 12 years old and still as full of personality and fun as ever. He's getting around well and is a wonderful dog. We are STOKED to see him as DailyDoxie today.

This is Max. I got him from Wonder Dog Rescue in San Francisco. ( He was eight months old at the time. He's now two years old. Max was the fifth Doxie to join this site so he's an OW (original weenie).

Here's his rescue story:

I didn't intend to get a dog the day I took him, and I wasn't looking for a Doxie, but I feel like Max chose me. It took two whole days of volunteering at the rescue's adoption event for him to warm up to me, and about a minute for my heart to melt when he put his paws on me and wanted to be held. I mean, look at that face and tell me you'd be able to resist!

Part of the reason he was in the rescue was his dislike of strangers (barking, growling, baring his teeth) made it hard to find him a home. Our first few weeks of walks in SF were a nightmare and I could never be sure what he'd do. Now he's mellowed out. He's still not a big fan of strangers but he'll accept a cookie from strangers and doesn't flip if someone calmly tries to pet him. He's not reacting from a fear mentality anymore.

Now, he is a source of laughter and joy, so well loved. He's not afraid to stand his ground and protect our house by sounding the alarm.

Max likes to hunt and has brought me presents such as squirrels. He once flushed a bear out of the tree while I was out hiking and quite honestly I didn't appreciate that. He has hiked tall mountains with me. He is pure muscle, tough as can be, but he's still a lapdog and a cuddler. He likes to eat the ripe berries that are in season, to swim in the rivers and ponds around here, and to ride in the back of the truck on warm days with his dog friends Hannah the Newfoundland and Brownie the mutt.

Max has a good life with us in Oregon. He gets to do big dog stuff but he's still our little cuddler so he has the best of both worlds! We love having him as a part of our family and would gladly rescue any more Doxies.

Isn't he cute?

Being this cute is tiring!
