Meet a miniature Dachshund looking for a caring home - Max, the Ann Pet of the Week

By Deb Kern


Max is available for adoption at the Humane Society of Huron Valley

This handsome miniature Dachshund mix was born deaf and with limited eye-sight. Yes, he has some limitations but the joy and love he can give to his family have no limitations at all. He is healthy and will be immensely happy as soon as he gets adopted.

Max is a little over a year old and came to the Humane Society of Huron Valley from a breeder who no longer wanted him. Once Max gets to know you he’s affectionate and funny. He loves to play with his toys and then crawl into your lap. He gets very excited to be with you, and he will make a wonderful companion for the right family. Max will need a patient family who understands small dogs, and because he’s deaf, a home with children older than 12 would be best.

If you have room in your heart and home for a small dog with special needs, we hope you will come to HSHV and meet Max.

HSHV is open daily at 11 a.m. for adoptions. All pets available for adoption are spayed/neutered, up to date on their vaccinations, medically and behaviorally evaluated, and they have a microchip ID all included in their low adoption fee. Please make adoption your first option.
