Ten Years And Counting: 12-Year-Old Maximum Waits To Be Adopted

Morris County, New Jersey – A dog with a New Jersey rescue group has been waiting for ten years for someone to choose him to be part of their family. The 12-year-old dog is with the Eleventh Hour Rescue group, and for the majority of his life, he has been waiting to be adopted.
On Tuesday, award-winning photographer Sophie Gamand tried once again to garner some attention for this long-overlooked, senior dog. Gamand turned to social media in an attempt to find Maximus a real home; she writes:
I’ve shared him several times over the years, and it’s disheartening to see him wait and wait. Will he end up dying at the shelter, never knowing the comfort of his own home?
According to Gamand, Maximus was a bit of a “wild child” in his younger days, but time has slowed him down, and now he likes to spend time resting in his bed, going for car rides, and taking walks.
Though Maximum lived peaceably with other dogs for a short period of time, those who know him best feel that he is best suited to being the only pet in the home because he can be “selective” at times.
Gamand describes Maximus’ ideal home:
Maximus’ ideal retirement home would be on the quiet side with not too many visitors coming by consistently to overwhelm him. Maximus is a volunteer favorite with a smile that can brighten even the cloudiest of days.
Please share Maximus’ story far and wide. Somewhere out there is his perfect home, he just hasn’t found it yet.
