Sunday Times Number 3 best seller!


It’s 'just a dog' you’ll hear them say.

Max is much more than ‘just a dog’. In fact if truth be told, you wouldn’t be reading this right now if not for Max

You see he saved me from an illness that unwittingly brought me anxiety, panic attacks, an incredible guilt complex, sleep deprivation, the feeling of being worthless, to being an unwanted burden, the loss of friends and of all my confidence
It was an illness that put me in a downward spiral, very near to the edge of ending it all.

Max gave me back my self esteem, brought me a brighter future, introduced me to a new thought process. He gave me the will to see in the next day, the next week, the next month. He gave me hope, showing me the freedom of being outside once again, walked patiently beside me and helped conquer my fears, diverting my darkest thoughts to a much better and happier healthier place.

Writing this book may go a little way to repaying Max, but the debt is much larger than that. Max showed me the very essence of a true companionship. Max helped me win my personal battle with depression. He's my miracle dog.

Ours is a story that deserves to be heard so others may find a common ground, a new friendship, their own reason to smile again, their voice and just possibly the courage to look for help in their greatest time of need.

'Are you ready, Max? If anyone’s going to help me do this, it’s you.’

This our journey, this is Max the Miracle dog.
