Hi. I was a stray dog in Yuma. I was taken to the Yuma Human Society. Unlike the Tombstone Small Animal Shelter, the Yuma Humane Society is not a no-kill shelter. Dogs and cats who are not adopted within a certain period of time are euthanized—which is a fancy name to hide the fact that they are killed. The dogs and cats in the Tombstone Small Animal Shelter don’t have to worry about that. They can live there until someone just right picks them out to take them to their forever home. But, back to me. Like I said, I was in the Yuma Humane Society. Like the Tombstone Small Animal Shelter, the Yuma Humane Society takes stray dogs and dogs turned into the shelter because their owners can no longer take care of them to the local PetSmart store for adoption days. I was there under the name ROMEO because I am SUCH a lover, when Candy, my future owner, came in looking for a dog to take her for walks in the morning and to play tug of war with … well, she wants me to play fetch, but I think it is a lot more fun to hold on and not let her take it from me right away. Anyway, she brought her husband David by that afternoon and they both decided that they needed me to come live with them. They changed my name to Canis Maximus Destructivus because I chew up about anything—including a couple of doggie beds and nearly all the toys they buy me. They call me Max for short—or Max the Wonder Dog (because they wonder what I’m up to next). I get to take Candy on long walks through the desert and I get to chase rabbits. I learned how to swim in the Colorado River, but I’m still terrified of the swimming pool. I brought lots and lots of love to Candy and David. I know that if you are looking for lots and lots of love, you should look at the Tombstone Animal Shelter or at the PetSmart adoption day for your new best friend. I heard that Candy and David might be doing just that to find me a new best friend, too, because they saw MY TWIN on the Tombstone Small Animal Shelter website. Like anyone could be as cute as me!
