Max is the epitome of the great all-round Australian larrikin. His fun-loving temperament sees him equally at home with the horses in the paddocks, surfing at the beach - or simply curled up on the lounge. But he is also a great watchdog - pretty smart at that: when he saw a deadly dugite snake in the backyard, he was sensible enough to stand back and bark instead, alerting his owner who came to the rescue. "He's a clever dog and learns very quickly" according to his owner Di, "but what makes him so special is the love he shows for us all."

Max waits patiently with Di while the camera crew figure out the next photo shoot.
