Visit from Max the Dog from Fox 5

Fox 5 Max visits Atlanta RMHC!

Fox 5 Max is an 18-week-old Golden Retriever puppy from Canine Assistants adopted by the FOX 5 Atlanta news team for training. He’s considered to be a Service Dog-In-Training and will one day be a companion to a Veteran.

Last week, Max visited our House near Egleston and brought some family fun and pet therapy to the patients and families staying with us! Max’s dog trainer, Kristen LaFevers, said it was a great experience for him and he blew her away with how gentle, aware and sweet he was with all the children. Watch a video of Max’s interaction with two children in particular, Journey and Peter, HERE.

Max seemed to enjoy making new friends at Atlanta RMHC and the joy on the children’s faces was priceless! We’re wishing the best of luck to Max during the remainder of his service-dog training and hope he’ll visit our families again soon.
