Maximus, or Maxy or Max, arrived at our East Midlands home via train from Kent. His father is a Great Dane and his mum is Rottweiler/Bull Mastiff. He received many oohs and aahs from all who caught a glimpse of him while traveling that day back in early 2009. In fact, one train conductor enquired if he were a leopard! 'No mam, just a very tired spotted 9wk old puppy!' Was our reply with much laughter. He's only recently learned, at just 16wks old, how to milk all the attention. He's got a whole lotta growing to do yet and is always looking for new friends. Specially those who are frightened away by his size. All he wants is a chance to play!
