Max in our field

The person to whom we originally sold Max absolutely adored him and was able to take him to work with him everyday as he owned his own building business. But he ran into both business and personal problems and ended up working overseas, coming home every few months. At first he tried to keep Max, but when it became clear to him that Max was not doing well with this new arrangement, he tearfully asked me if we would take Max back. He really did not want to give him up -- it hurt him to do so -- but he loved Max too much to see him unhappy.

Max is a big character, just like his dad Ziggy of whom he is almost a spitting image. He LOVES to play, and unlike many of his Canaan brethren will retrieve a thrown toy over and over again. Richard and he have really bonded. Max has proven to be a great dog to take to Discover Dogs to represent the breed in our club's breed booth, and willingly plays along with all our silly games at our club fun days. And just like his dad, everyone who comes to visit falls in love with him.

Max has beautiful conformation and movement, and the strength and agility of his wild ancestors. Our only disappointment is that his former owner had Max neutered, so he cannot be used to pass on these traits. However, we are fortunate in that we have his litter sister, Ruby (Anacan Sheeza Gem) who has already made her mark in both the show ring and whelping box. Max is still a wonderful addition to our family and he brings us a lot of joy. Though we are sad for his former owner, who still keeps in touch, we are glad Max has come home.
