Throwback Thursday – Max

Meet Max, the star of this week’s throwback Thursday.

We caught up with dad Ben, to find out more about this gentle giant.

Name – Maximus (aka Max)

Why this name – Maximum size, maximum personality, maximum fluff. Max is a pretty well suited name.

Age – 3 years

Breed – Leonberger

Why this breed – ‘We came across some Leonbergers at a dog show several years ago and we were blown away by their kind and loving nature. They are so great with other dogs and kids. They are the perfect family dog, if you can cope with the hair that is.’

How old was Max when he joined your family – 8 weeks old

Where did you get your pet from? – Max was from a reputable breeder in Spalding.

Favourite Food – ‘Anything raw and meaty.’

Favourite Toy – ‘He loves his fluffy Christmas hedgehog.’

Favourite human – ‘Definitely his little human sister Isla, who recently turned 1.’

Likes – ‘Swimming, getting wet and food.’

Hates – ‘Getting dry, the blow dryer and the hoover.’

Weirdest habit – ‘Max likes to sleep on his back with his legs in the air. He also has a habit of woofing in his sleep.’

Character – ‘Max loves to play with all dogs and all people and doesn’t have a bad bone in him.’

If you could have any other breed, what would it be – ‘To be honest, there is no other breed in the world we would even consider after having a Leo. However, we are very fond of other big dogs like Newfies, St Bernard’s, Bernese etc.’

A big thank you to Ben and his family for sharing their photos of adorable Max.

We are always on the look out for handsome hounds and pretty pooches to feature in our throwback Thursday blogs. If you would like to take part, email us at Hello@Buddies.co.uk.
