The storm came with a sepia hint to the silver-black sky with the trees joining the wind in unfolding the scene. Though the abrupt and startling gasps of the wind, we welcomed a surprise howl of a puppy on the door. Max the dog was found in the doors of Stray feeder- Uncle Heng’s shack in the forested area of Seletar. The local shelter, Purely Adoptions, was alerted to the scenes. That’s where, Irene, first saw the small puppy, and she named him Max.
Max grew up fast, within a year he was almost fully grown. Throughout the 12 months, Max was put up for adoption. Despite the tremendous effort in getting him adopted into a home, none of the home stays worked out for him. Although All the workers there described him as loving, affectionate and kind. But the journey to find his forever home seemed like forever. His fosterer, Sharilyn was wondering when will he get adopted.
Throughout the one year of finding a fur-ever home, it was not a easy journey for Max. He was the best boy as attest by the many who have worked with him. He was the cutest boy around the workers, and also to his fosterer Sharilyn. But he failed his home-stay one time after another, he was usually cheerful and happy in his fosterer’s house, as soon as he got to his new potential home, he got grumpy and started to snap. It’s very unusual of him to do so. Perhaps in his mind he had already been adopted and the action of transferring him to another home is an act of abandonment. And when he got back to Sharilyn’s house he got thrilled and became his normal self. So finally what he really wants. And finally he was adopted by Sharilyn! What a happy day!
After many years, Max has fully integrated and become part of his new family, he would often go on trips with his owner. They would go for Boat trips, swimming trips all around the island. As his owner is also a kayak instructor, he would be their ambassador. Of course, he was afraid of water at first, but with the right coaxing, he manage to overcome his fear and now he’s a avid swimmer. But that’s another story for another day Other days when his human is out at work, he would just lie in his own kernel at home taking a sweet nap. His life is truly a life of what we describe as a perfect life. Living rent free without any obligations. Kudos to his owner Sharilyn for taking such good care of him! His discount code is <max25>
