It's a Match! A Dog Adoption Story: Max and Diane!

Max allpaws

We love this story of Diane who used AllPaws to search for a pet to adopt. She ended up using AllPaws to adopt a dog! She adopted a Terrier mix named Max from St. Louis Missouri and she has given him a loving, forever home!


Diane tells us: "My husband and I adopted Mack. Since it’s also my grandson’s name we changed it to Max.

Max was being fostered in St. Louis, MO.  We went to visit him and immediately fell in love with his high energy and affection. About a week later we came back to get him. We could not take him when we first saw him because our house was being painted and there were ladders all over the place.

I think he was in a shelter in Farmington, MO and his future was bleak. Act Now Rescue saved him (thank god) and now he is in our home forever. He is so full of energy and love for us (especially me) that I can’t imagine being any happier. He is the best dog ever."


Awww…we love getting stories like this from our users who found a pet to adopt on AllPaws! At AllPaws, our mission is to help more pets get adopted so it makes us smile when we’re able to see a happy pet in its new forever home!
