WCLRR kid Max crossed the Rainbow Bridge on Tuesday.

From his family:

“Max – the love of our lives has let us know he’s ready to leave his body. The cancer had metastasized into every. organ and that’s no way to live a life a la Max. This fur kid was so beloved by everyone, he leaves a huge hole in Jack’s and in our hearts. Soar high my love!”

Max was one of the first dogs the fledgling WCLRR adopted to a family. They helped shape WCLRR into an incredible, transparent organization. We wouldn’t be who we are today without Max. Our hearts go out to his family and friends. RIP Max. The WCLRR Team. 🐶💔

Let’s welcome Max to the WCLRR family!   Max is a handsome male Labrador approximately seven years young.  This stunning boy is attractive on the outside, and he is an amazing boy inside.  He is calm, loving, sweet, and slightly playful. We think this is the best combination that someone would look for in a little bit older Labrador.

We rescued Max from a high-kill shelter. Our team watched Max patiently on the shelter website because we were sure his owner would come looking for him.  When they never came, we knew that we had to get him to safety and into our foster care.  Max lives in a foster home with another male labby. They are fast becoming great pals.  He is playing with the ball that his foster throws and he is carrying around his favorite stuffed animal.

Max was recently neutered and has healed. He also had a wellness vet visit at our vet to have his ears cleaned, and an excellent all-around check-up.  Our vet said this is one healthy boy and will make someone very happy.  Max has the typical sad eyes when he looks at you, but don’t let that fool you. His tail is always wagging, and he has a grin on his face. Max would love his new family to make him part of all of their activities. He would love to go on walks, sit with you at the local coffee shop, hang out in the yard, or maybe even a hike.  But Max wants to be with his family!

Max hasn’t been cat tested, so we cannot determine if he would be a good fit for a family with cats.

Max does love children, even the younger ones!  He is so gentle and sweet, and he loves dogs!  Max does pretty well on a leash, he pulls at times, but with some small corrections, this boy would be perfect.

Max is 100% housebroken and knows how to use the doggy door.   Max has been neutered, microchipped, and up to date on his shots.
