ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - ABC Action News helps find homes for dogs currently living in shelters every Friday morning our Pet of the Week segment.

We are featuring Max this week. He is a 4-year-old, 50 pound Pit Bull Terrier mix.

According to the American Kennel Club, terriers are intelligent, good-natured dogs who are excellent guardians.

Shelter workers say Max is a happy go lucky pit bull mix who is looking for a family that will give him plenty of exercise and help him reach his fitness goals.

Thanks to the Pit Project and her Guardian Angel, Becky Bunch, Max's adoption fee is only $75. He is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. You must own your own home to adopt him.
