It’s no secret dogs love to play ball. They thrive at the challenge of catching the toy and bringing it back to their owners. Maddox is no exception, although for this pit bull it is an extraordinary challenge to grab the sphere. The three-year-old was given up to the Associated Humane Popcorn Park Shelter in Forked River, New Jersey. He was thin, with its hair falling out, and overall neglected. The canine, however, made a huge recovery within a month of being in the shelter. Today, he loves nothing more than to make new friends and play ball. In the video, Maddox is trying really hard to catch a giant tennis ball. It’s a good thing this pup is not a quitter, despite his failed attempts to pick it up; the ball is stronger and bigger than him. Maddox looks like he got quite surprised at 1:50 when this happened to him.
Giant Tennis Ball Fun with Maddox! Maddox loves chasing a tennis ball, but this is just ridiculous! Our friends at Lacey Pet Supply gave us this extra special tennis ball for the real ball enthusiasts, and Maddox just couldn’t get enough of it! Read about Maddox below then come in and meet this fun-loving goofball!Maddox is a 3 year old pittie that was turned in by his owner who said he could no longer care for him. It was obvious that it had been a long time since anyone had taken care of Maddox by the looks of him.Poor Maddox was rail thin, his skin was in terrible condition and his hair was falling out. It took about a month to get this sweet boy back in shape but now, Maddox is positively thriving and is ready to meet the family that will make his dreams of a good home a reality. Maddox is a friendly and outgoing little guy that does the whole body-wiggle as soon as you start talking to him. Give him a toy and you’re his best friend for life! Maddox has a ball carrying around and squeaking toys, running in our exercise yard, and just making friends and enjoying life. It really doesn’t take much to make him happy. Maddox is well behaved, sits and lies down immediately when asked, and is very gentle while taking treats. All this and he’s good with other dogs and kids too. What more could you ask for?
