We adopted Maxi from our local SPCA in August 2011. Our vet thought he was about 7-8 months old at the time. He was picked up as a stray, and because of his size had been overlooked. At the time I had 6 dogs already, (4 boxers and 2 bull terriers) but I couldn't resist his sweet face.
We named him Maxi, coz he is a Maxi sized dog, and the mouse part, cos he gets into everything. He opens cupboards, and helps himself to doggie treats. Knows how to open drawers to look for a pair of socks to play with, and how to get to the third shelf of the bookcase to get a fluffy toy.
He is the sweetest, most lovable dog, and really gives our boxers a run for there money, though he does look like a slinky when he runs.
