Dear KHS Staff,

This is just a quick note to thank you for introducing me/us to Tex, whom we have since re-named Max.

When we lost our buddy Lucky a few months back, I truly could not fathom ever finding and loving a dog as much as we did our dear friend and companion Lucky. When I heard the ad on the radio a couple of weeks ago for Tex I was a little dubious but something inside said I should at least go and look at him. As soon as the ad finished I turned the car around and headed to K-Rock only to learn that Tex had already been returned to the KHS.

I went from K-Rock to the KHS and arrived just as the handlers were bringing Tex back from his outing to K-Rock. To say it was love at first sight would be an understatement. I could simply not believe that anyone could have abandoned such a beautiful dog and needless to say I could not bring myself to leave the KHS without him.

Max took no time in adjusting to his new home and family and my son Joe and I (as well as Joe’s girlfriend) have had a ball getting acquainted and helping Max to overcome any memories of mistreatment, neglect or abuse. He is such a good-natured and smart little guy that training him was not even an issue. Since arriving home he has not had a single accident, he comes when called, he has not run off (even though a few times he had ample opportunity when the back gate was left open) and he has even made some new friends (see pictures below). Everyone who has met him just can’t help but love him and all have remarked what a good dog he is.

We wanted to let you know that Max is now happy and healthy and has a home where he can feel safe and loved. Thank you to all who helped bring Max (aka Tex) to us.

Warm regards,


Our old pal Lucky - gone but not forgotten
