Shelter dog cries himself to sleep…


My names ‘Max Woodcutters’, the shelter says I’m one of the sweetest street dogs that ever was, they named me after the area I was confiscated from!

My last owners actually wanted me back, but the shelter ladies stood up for me, said there was a better life for me! At first I didn’t believe them, but now boy oh boy, am I glad those ladies put their foot down…

My new Mummy didn’t even know I existed, she replied to an advert for another rescue dog, one called ‘Mango’ who had a post advertising him, I wasn’t lucky enough to get a post see!

But when she was told Mango was already adopted and asked if she’d like to meet another dog that fit her criteria, she said YES! Then she met me! And she says its the best YES she ever gave…

There was only one thing standing between me and my happy ever after…
