Introducing Max the Yellow English Labrador! 6-year-old Max is the greeter at Shelton’s Jewelry and Gift Gallery in Heber Springs, Arkansas. He has been working alongside his human, store co-owner Kathy Shelton, since he was a puppy. Pleasant and calm, he has the perfect demeanor to work retail. When new customers come in Max waits for them to say something to him before he goes out to see them. He has learned that not all people want a doggie greeting. He especially loves babies, children and delivery people – particularly Steve the mailman. Recently an unhappy 4-year-old boy came in with his dad. Kathy sent Max out to see him and he was smiling and happy in seconds.
