Basic Obedience Class Leads to Competition Career for Rescue Pup

Jimenez’s Max CD RAE NAJ NAP NJP owned by Ana Jimenez of El Paso, TX 

In 2009, Ana went to a local animal rescue to adopt a dog. When she saw a little 5 month old terrier mix, she knew he was the one.

“Shortly after I decided to take a training class with Max on basic obedience and that is when I found out about rally,” Ana said.

The rally class led to competitions and on Jan. 17, 2016, they earned the highest honor in AKC rally - the Rally Advanced Excellent (RAE)  title -

 in El Paso, TX, at the Rio Grande Obedience Dog Club trial with a score of 93 in Advance Rally and a score of 97 in Excellent Rally. Max also has a CD in obedience, Novice agility titles, and is a certified therapy dog with close to 100 visits.

“Adopting Max has enhanced my life in so many ways. Max is my first dog, and I never imagined the love and companionship this fur baby has given me.”
