Max says, "Whassup?!"

Max and his Foxhound brother Rocco at the window one morning as walkers go by with another dog. Max begins to baroooo and shout out "whassup's and what are you doing on my lawn?" Our Old Man Max is the "Sarge" around here and nothing slips by why he's on watch!

Super Star Singer

Wilson is our resident loud mouth and super star singer. He often joins in to mimic when a siren is passing by. His friends like to sing backup for him . . . in this video is Kota, a Jack Russell / Dachshund mix (he comes to work every day on the Ranch) following Wilson around on the howl. In the background, perched on her lookout box is Ms. Starr (aka "Big Brown" - she also comes to work every day on the Dirty Dog Ranch). Ms. Starr is a Retriever / Shepard / Beast mix and is the Ranch's very own security, and she takes her job quite seriously. 

So that's all for now . . . you've met three of our dogs on The Dirty Dog Ranch in this video. There's plenty more to come!

Old Man Max

Max joined the Dirty Dog Ranch in 2008. He was introduced to us through the Tampa Bay Beagle Rescue and it was love at first sight! Max has always been an eccentric, lone Tracker who loves a good scent trail. He'll track and barooo for hours if he gets on a good smell! When he's not tracking, you will find him sleeping in his favorite leather chair or stalking his Mom in the kitchen. His priorities are food, sleep, smells and love (in that order). Max is the elderly statesman here, and is known by many different names: Old Man, Sarge, Stinky, Monkey and just Max. At 14 years old, Max calls the shots and sets the pace. We love him dearly!
