After spending his life outdoors in mud and harsh elements, this adorable terrier mix is now enjoying the indoor life. After Max was rescued, a rectal tumor was discovered and a decision to try to save this gentle-natured dog was made.

This pet was put on an electric invisible fence and left out in the rain for weeks, these systems are cruel and unusual containment devices.

The lesion turned out to be benign and was successfully excised. Max is recovering in a foster home.

Even with a generous discount, Max's veterinarian bill is teetering at about $475. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation in any amount to help Max.
