Max the Mixed Devil

We owned max for 18 years.
We had him until he had to go euthanasia due to health reasons.

He was the most problematic dog of all.
He was EXTREMELY territorial, wouldn't let us walk in our own home. he would bite us severely (dad had to go to hospital) and would try to attack people outside - kids too.
He was locked up once for having bitten one of our family members, and to be honest we should've either got a "Ceaser Milan" or done something.
No training was applied onto him.
Castration didn't help his nerves.

Only when he got old did he start to become a normal, cute and friendly pet.

Very mixed emotions about this one. maybe the crazy breed did it, maybe the fact he was probably abused before we took him in. Either way, was a complex story over all, with a bitter sweet ending.
