Meet Sir Max!

Sir Max is a 9 year old purebred English Cocker Spaniel who was surrendered to the Brooklyn shelter by his owner due to her own terminal illness. His owner was weeping hysterically at the time of his surrender.

From the expression on Max's face, it is clear that he continues to grieve for her as well. Sir Max came to us with a severe infection in one ear, which we initially thought might require surgery. Fortunately, his rescuers dermatologist has been successful in saving the ear, which was infected by multiple forms of highly resilient bacteria.

Sir Max is now a very healthy boy, although as an older dog he does have some stiffness in his joints, for which he is taking Cosequin. Sir Max would do best in an adult only home, perhaps with a single woman, as he is accustomed to being the center of his mom's world. Sir Max has been neutered, microchipped, is up-to-date on all shots, and has tested negative for heartworm.

We found Sir Max through Abandoned Angels Cocker Spaniel Rescue, Inc., in Flushing, New York.
