Maxwell (Now Charlie)

Maxwell (Now Charlie)

And there goes a piece of my heart… Maxwell, with his larger-than-life personality, good looks and ability to make you fall in love with a Bulldog, has been adopted and Maxwell never even looked back.

Maxwell has a family with kids, parents that work from home and he has fairytale ending. Maxwell lives on some acreage in a beautiful area, where rabbits, squirrels and all kinds of critters freely roam. And Maxwell is on patrol letting out a low bark, as if to tell the outside animals there is a new sheriff on patrol!

Maxwell’s new name is Charlie because their previous dog was Max. He was just as eager to be called that as he was Maxwell.

The only thing he actually cared about was making sure someone in the family was up for playing with him because playing is always the first thing on his list to get done!

Much happiness, Charlie. You were an amazing foster dog!

Two-year-old Maxwell was originally adopted back in April, but today, he’s back in rescue. I could not help but think Maxwell wished he could have a “do over.” He wished he would have left his Bulldog sister alone and that he could take back those times he jumped on her for no reason.

Maxwell is a beefy fella. He had fabulous vet care and enjoyed the finer things in life, but at times, he just wanted to start a fight with the resident Bulldog lady who also lived in the home.

It was an emotional time for the adoptive family and the good-byes were very difficult. Then, Maxwell quietly sobbed all night, clearly thinking, “Where am I? Why am I here and who are you?”  Maxwell was loved, but may do best in a fur-free family.


Please welcome Maxwell to our family! At 20 months old, Maxwell packed his bag, bowls, bones, toys, shampoo, brushes and bag of dog food and hit the road. He’s now looking for a family that wants a beautiful, friendly, loving Bulldog who likes to take long walks and play ball, and in general, has time for him. Maxwell loves everyone and everyone loves him. His original family thought he was too happy, too friendly and had too much energy for their lifestyle. They realized Maxwell needed a family that wants an active Bulldog who can throw a ball in the air and catch it. Maxwell is about 60 lbs of pure muscle and is simply amazing!

4/22/18 Update:  What up to all the Bulldog lovers out there! 🐶 For those I haven’t met, the name is Maxwell and you can call me Max for short. Foster Ma sometimes calls me Maaaaaaaaaaaaaaax. I’m not sure why she says it for that long, but hey, whatever works 😉 Life is pretty good here at my foster crib. The food is great, treats are endless and I get lots of play time, which is my favorite. 🏈 I am a happy-go-lucky dude, never met a stranger and make friends with everyone.

I think Foster Ma is pretty fond of me because she never leaves my side. She tells me I’m still a youngin’ and have things to learn so she’s helping me. If you ask me, I think she just can’t get enough of all my cuteness, but don’t tell my foster bro that. It’s time for my walk, so I will holler atcha later.
