Everyone, meet Max!

This fun-loving guy is TribLive’s very first Pet of the Week, and he’s available for adoption at Animal Protectors of Allegheny Valley in New Kensington.

Age: 4 or 5 years old

Breed: He’s a shepherd mix who came to the shelter with some pretty bad allergies but, after a round of medicine, he is doing much better.

What he likes: Max loves to play and splash around in the shelter’s kiddie pool.

Personality: He’s great with other dogs, but the shelter’s unsure about how he’ll do with cats.

After spending about two months at the shelter, he is ready to find his forever home.

If you’re interested: Stop by the shelter, 533 Linden Ave., and fill out an application.

All applicants go through a background check that is usually completed in one or two days.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
