ATLANTA - Operation Max continues at FOX 5, and the puppy is well on his way to becoming a service dog for a veteran in need.
Max moved back to the FOX 5 Atlanta sales department last week and has been staying with Account Executive Donna Bell, who is on his small team of fosters.
Now 19-weeks-old, Max has been learning a lot. He spends the majority of his time at his foster's side, in addition to working with his Canine Assistants instructor, Kristen LaFevers, several days a week.
Max's foster team has been working closely with Kristen and Canine Assistants to ensure he learns everything he needs to know about becoming a service dog.
Donna has taken Max on a number of public outings, which have included sales calls and business lunches. They have visited a number of restaurants, attended church in Buckhead, played in the park, and Donna even took him to boot-camp with her early in the morning before Good Day Atlanta.
He's also enjoyed spending time with her dog, Beebe.

Max will be with Donna until Tuesday. Then, he'll enjoy a trip to the Canine Assistants farm before moving back to the newsroom to stay with Good Day Atlanta Producer Susan Kicak.
You can watch Max on Good Day Atlanta, Monday-Friday.
