He was very nice in the house except for his severe separation anxiety. She couldn't leave the house because he barked non-stop. She had to have her dog walker stay in the house when she needed to go out. MaryAnne hired a trainer to work with his dog aggression.

He seemed to be getting better until the other day when a child came close. Had MaryAnne not pulled Max away he would have bitten him. He also attacked his dog walker, whom he liked. After consulting with her vet, she decided to help Max over the Rainbow Bridge. Max's aggression toward people and dogs was unpredictable and he couldn't be trusted to be with anyone.
It was heartbreaking for her. This is her third dog in recent years that has gone to the Rainbow Bridge. She adopts senior dogs and ones with medical issues and spends money trying to heal them. It was sad for me too. Max was sweet when he was in the house and had come to trust you. He sat on my lap and let me pet him.
Unfortunately, not all dogs can be saved. The ACC should have never allowed him to be adopted.
