In Loving Memory
Jan 5, 2001 - Oct 26, 2010
Max will not be moved to Over the Rainbow page...He was the
first guardian to Three Birch Farm and will remain here forever
to watch over our grounds
"The King of our Jungle"
and the Love of my Life (for an animal that is..lol)
He is majestic & proud...His natural genetic instincts take over as he was born to be a "Security Guard".
We acquired Max for home protection, to train in Obedience, and to be a loyal companion and pet. He is beyond a doubt one of the most unique dogs I have ever been around! Anyone who knows Max would understand what I mean...Max's breeding is purebred...in the sense of the word, but not in a traditional way. His breeding was originated from a Neopolitan Mastiff female and an American Staffordshire cross. Max's parents were both imports. He is of the "Molosser" type breeding http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Molosser
These "bandogg's" were bred for home & property protection
and are still used in other countries today for that same purpose ... especially in countries where they are not allowed to own guns and do not have a means to protect themselves and their families from home invasions. These dog's are a definite deterrent. This type of dog is extremely protective of women and children...and is not a good dog choice for a weak or unconfident leader.
They are a loyal family member.
