Life hasn’t been very kind to Max so far.
The gentle giant, a seven-year-old male Japanese akita, was described as ‘very sad and bewildered’, having been surrendered to Dog Action Welfare (DAWG) by his previous owner.
Two months on, the kindness of the DAWG volunteers is helping Max to come out of his shell, but nobody has offered him a forever home.
“Sadly Max is still waiting for a home.” the charity posted on Facebook. “He has had a few visitors but no one has decided to adopt him.”
Akitas are an intelligent, loyal and faithful breed and known to be very affectionate towards their families, so with the right humans in his life, Max could finally escape his funk and start enjoying life again.
Both low energy and low maintenance, he is looking for a quiet adult home with a secure fenced-in garden.
“Max will make a very loyal companion he just needs someone to give him a chance. He can live with another female of similar size. Akita experience would be an advantage, just to understand the breed.”
