Arrival Story: Maxwell was a stray. I checked Craigslist and PetHarbor.com to see if anyone lost a dog matching his discription. None were found. He was extremly thin when I found him. I brought him to a friends house where he got out 3 days later. The pound then picked him up and after no owner came forward they asked me if I wanted to adopt him. I could not stop thinking about him and konwing what he was possibly going through boggled my mine. I found him on the freeway, on the inside shoulder in a business area. Since the day I found him, I could not stop thinking about him. I even lost sleep over him. When I first picked him up, he was shaking violently but rested his head on my shoulder in the car and did not want to leave me when I dropped him off at my friends.
Bio: Maxwell passed his Canine Good Citizen's test in June 2010 and his Public Access Test in August 2010. Maxwell Smart is a medical alert service dog who is always learning new tricks. He has made my life so much more manageable and knows how to make people smile. He loves to put on the cute factor. He goes with me everywhere and loves it. We are proud members of PSDP, OTAC and AOTA.
Service Dog Duties:: I will alert Mommy when she needs me to, I can take her out of a store, I can stop her medical symptoms from progressing too far and remind her to take her medicine and I am learning to fetch her medical bag on command and to pick up things she has dropped. I go to work with her every day and try to make her patients do their rehab work and make them smile. I've gone to the hospital with Mom to help her feel better and to make sure everyone takes good care of her. Woof!
