Max is Furiosa’s sibling brother. He is a big sweet lover. Although we’ve had a primarily female crew here at ATAO, Mad Max has managed to worm his way into our hearts! He’s one of only two males at ATAO, including his best bud R2. He takes after his mom, Yam, with his red coat and his blocky head. He is one of the “Outlaws”, including his biological sister Furiosa and his two “adopted” sisters Sundance and Cassidy.

Max spent his first year growing and the spring shedding. When he started to shed, it looked like a new and different dog had emerged– Out of a big ole fluffball grew a sleek running machine. He gets leggier every day, and I swear his big block head continues to get bigger and blockier.

Max is a gentle and sweet boy who loves the couch and cuddling. He’s playful and goofy, though he seems to understand dignity a bit better than his sister Furiosa. He and his sis love to yap at each other during playtime– they are both very talkative.

Max does great in harness. He gets to run with R2 most of the time. They spend a lot of their time playing together, and their personalities seem to mesh well. Max is like the goofy jock, and R2 is the emo cool kid. Max also likes his new neighbor Mungry, who is younger but bigger. No one can out block Max’s block head though!

Max got to run in the first two legs of the Copper Basin in 2018, but was “dropped” in the second checkpoint because of issues getting too darn HOT! He took a year off from racing in 2019/2020, but he’s back on the training roster for the coming year. We’re excited to see what he can do!
