He greets you at the door,...and does spins at your feet to welcome you home.

He absolutly LOVES all the squirell action when outside,...he is determined to one day catch one,...

He and Angel are finally starting to play, as Maxie is finding out that it's okay to play with this "older lady",...

Maxie Is A Good Boy!!

Maxie is as sweet as they come,.. he relishes all the attention you can give him,...so far no accidents in the house.
He and Angel get along just fine,..
When we visited the dog park yesterday, Maxie, stuck close by,.. even in the tall grass ,as Angel was off on a hunting mission , Maxie prefered to stay by my side,.

If you had never known Maxie's history, one would have never guessed that he and endured such horrible conditions,.....

Finally Arriving in Des Moines,...

Maxie did real well riding in the car, he was a bit nervous at first, but settled down nicely.
He and Angel slept most of the 7 hours home.

Once we got home, we toured the yard, and Maxie enjoyed, sniffing out all the fun in my flower beds, then we headed inside to meet Steve, and my son, Steven.

Maxie walked right over to Steve ,and sat at his feet, to layed his head on Steve's knee, as if to ask, "Is is okay for me to stay here?"

After seeking approval, Maxie ate a little bit, and promptly passed out ,... in the middle of the floor,...
We crated him, in the kids room with lots of fluffy blankets, a pigs ear, and a little water,.. he wasn't to thrilled about going in the crate, but once inside we didn't hear a peep out of him,..
