A Shelter Full of Hope and Promise

Max – Adopted September 2016


Max was surrendered to WAG during our Wellness Clinic in August 2016. He was limping at the time of surrender and his previous owner suspected he had been hit by a car. When Max was neutered, we also x-rayed his front limbs. He was diagnosed with severe elbow dysplasia, a congenital condition. Max's new family knew about his condition and the care that would be needed going forward and still couldn't wait to bring him home. We were happy to receive an update about life with the large puppy:


"We have now had the pleasure of having Max for over a year now. He loves his walks and playing in the water. He is good to all dogs. We have yet to see him growl!! He has been a superb addition to our family and his endless patience and calmness around our son is so appreciated. Both his front legs (bilateral moderate/severe elbow dysplasia) seems to be holding thus far - there are times, Max certainly limps more but seems to recover well.

Thanks again for giving us the opportunity to adopt Max - we are so grateful."
