Max,truly a gift from God & My special Angel (Destini)

(Metropolis Illinois,USA )

On Dec 14th of 2000 I lost my husband and 6 year old daughter,five months later my mother,and a year after that my brother in law.

I was so alone never thought of myself as making a dog a part of my family. I was looking through the newspaper adds and saw someone was selling rott puppies I still to this day don’t know what made me go and look at these pups but I did and needless to say I feel in love with all of them, however there was one who stood out from the rest and I knew he was meant for me so I paid the man and took him home,I named him Ricky (after my late husband).

This precious gift was no longer a dog to me, he was my family since I had lost most of mine in such a short time. I had him for 6 years and then someone shot him I was devastated to say the least. I told myself then I would never love anything again as though it seemed like everything I loved was leaving me.

Well here I am again I bought Max 4 weeks ago he is now 4 months old and he means the world to me I can’t imagine my life without him, he sleeps with me every-night he even gives me good night kisses on the right side of my face just as my 6 year old daughter did…Max is a very special part of my life and I know Destini (that was daughter’s name ) with God’s help led me to him, although my life will never be complete after the loss of my family especially my daughter.

Max has gave me reason to go on he wakes me up every morning and makes my day worthwhile. I look forward to many years of happiness with my special gift from my daughter and of course our Heavenly Father ! God bless you all and these lovable babies !

Tammy, your story literally made me cry. I’m so sorry for all the losses you’ve suffered.

Max is gorgeous and knowing Rottweilers the way I do, I’m certain that he will be the best friend and companion you could ever want. They’re incredible dogs and I’m happy that you have found someone to help fill the empty places in your heart.

God Bless you both! ~ Sue

Thank you,God bless you. I’m having a hard time right now,I decided to put Max in Extreme K-9 training in house.. so I can’t see him until the 29th,oh how I miss him,but I felt it would be good for him considering he is a rottie and people automatically assume he’s a vicious animal due to their lack of knowledge,if they only knew how lovable,clumsy,just plain silly and brilliant all at the same time they would stop with all this BSL…Thank you again. Have a blessed day

What a sad but beautiful story NEW
by: Cheryl

My heart goes out to you. I cant imagine how you felt or what you went thru. The fact that a rottie could pull you thru and help u carry on is so wonderful. I hope you are blessed with all the goodness you deserve.

couldn’t imagine NEW
by: Cheryl & Max

I am so very sorry for your loses I just couldn’t even imagine I only lost my dog and I thought my life was over,but when I lost my rottie at 11 1/2 yrs old, I too now have a Max that I adopted and it such a character,so much personality and he doesn’t really have that short stocky rottie look but these long legs,when we first got him at 7months old we use to call him our little gazelle all you noticed was legs,well now at just alittle over 2yrs old he is getting in to his body,still with the long legs but just as handsome as ever.
After reading your story I cried,you and Max are in my prayers and my god bless you and Max daily with peace,joy and love.
Wishing you and Max a lifetime of happiness together.
