Last weekend, Neil took Max to meet Chip and his sweet service dog, Vera

"It was a really cool experience for Max to get to see a service dog working in the world," Max's Canine Assistants instructor Kristen LaFevers said on Good Day Atlanta Tuesday morning. 

Chip and Vera have been together for several years now. Learn more about their journey together here.

Max will be with Neil in engineering for one more week. He'll then move back to the sales department and stay with Account Executive Donna Bell, who was Max's first foster parent at FOX 5. Max will continue rotating with his small team of dedicated fosters who are working closely with Canine Assistants as they teach him everything he needs to know about being a service dog.
