At 19.7 kg, Maxi weighed less than half what he should have.
Some people might think you can just feed a starving animal and they’ll get better - but our expert vets knew it wouldn’t be that simple.
Animals that haven't eaten properly for a long time need a careful feeding plan and constant monitoring.
It took weeks of care and compassion – including a feeding plan, specialist physiotherapy and an emergency surgery – before Max could even hold his own body weight on his wasted legs.
Today, Maxi’s new family make sure his life is every dog’s dream with lots of walks, cuddles and healthy food.
Lots of people had a part to play in saving Maxi’s life but it was only thanks to the support of kind, animal-loving people like you that we had the resources to give Maxi his second chance.
