Abandoned Beagle in Shelter Parking Lot “Living Your Best Life” with New Owners

A Maryland animal shelter has shared the news online that Max, a dog who was once abandoned in a parking lot, has found safety in a new home.

Max was left in the shelter parking lot by his owner, who simply walked him to the side of the building and drove off.

But Max is now recovering, on medication, from a stretched ligament, in a “loving home”. The location, however, has been kept secret, lest its former owners find out Max’s whereabouts.

“Today I received an update on Max. Max was the beagle that was dumped in the parking lot of our shelter,” the Humane Society of Wicomico County wrote in a social media post. “He was sore and distraught seeing his owner leave.

“Between the angels. Doggone Happy Animal Rescue Inc picked him up and put him in a loving home. All he needed was medicine for what they think was a stretched ligament. He doesn’t know that love now and that’s why we do what we do.”

The photo showed Max happily lying in his new secure living room, the location of which was purposely omitted. “I don’t tag his family because I never want his owner to know where he is but they know how special they are,” the shelter noted.

Max arrived at the shelter on February 22 around 8 a.m. when a car dumped him. “They took him out of the car to the side of the building and drove off. The dog was trying to follow them to the car and was crying.”

The beagle arrived with his name handwritten on his blue collar, and the shelter begged anyone with information about his owners to come forward.

Almost immediately, Max was rushed to a local foster home with the help of Doggone Happy Animal Rescue Inc.

“Not all humans are losers mate, you don’t know it yet, but you hit the jackpot,” one shelter worker wrote in a Facebook post. “You’ll be on your mom’s lap tonight being rocked.”

“Right now it’s a comfy bed and blanket and a quick ride to your foster home. It makes me sick and so sad that he’s so nervous in my truck because his last ride in car landed and he was jettisoned. Those days are over Max.”

Members of the local community reveled in the good news of Max’s new home, as updated this week by the shelter.

“God bless him ~ may he live his best life and God bless everyone involved in this loving journey to his forever home,” one local woman wrote.
