In 2007, Max joined the CK9 pack from Everett Animal Shelter. At two years old, he was bright-eyed and bushy-tailed and ready for adventure. Most well-known for his work on the spotted owl study finding owl pellets, Max has also been to Cambodia and Alberta among many other locations. He’s traveled by bush plane, by four wheeler, by boat. Max is slowly adapting to his new role as retiree. While he does love to spend time on the couch, he’s never one to pass up a hike or swim!
