No. This is not news. But it’s Tuesday, and we thought you might need a puppy story.

That’s why we want to introduce you to Max, Larimer County’s newest search and rescue dog.

Max recently came aboard after he was donated by German shepherd breeder Scott Worthing, who wanted to fill the hole felt by the loss of Abby and Merlin, Larimer County’s previous SAR dogs.

Larimer County Search and Rescue posted photos of Max on his Facebook page – and he’s adorable/so very official.

We look forward to many years of great service, Max!
