Max is a very inspiring story about loyalty, friendship,  and family.  It is an amazing movie to watch as a family, it teaches our kids on the impacts of the right and wrong decisions in life.    This film was made in honor of the service dogs and their handlers who died serving our country.  It was so neat to learn all that goes into training of these service dogs and the time the men and women take to train them.   They are just as much as heroes as their human counter parts!

When  Max's  handler, Kyle is killed, Max returns from war with PTSD.  Unfortunately no one can get through to him and is about to be put down. He only seems to respond to Kyle's brother, Josh.  Kyle's family decide to take in Max, he is family and task Josh to be his caregiver.  In the process, Josh learns more about himself, his brother, Max and what it means to be part of a family.
 
This is such a great movie and you will not be able to watch it without the tissues handy. 

SYNOPSIS

A precision-trained military dog, Max serves on the frontlines in Afghanistan alongside his handler, U.S. Marine Kyle Wincott. But when things go terribly wrong on maneuvers, Kyle is mortally wounded and Max, traumatized by the loss of his best friend, is unable to remain in service. Sent stateside, the only human he seems willing to connect with is Kyle’s teenage brother, Justin, so Max is saved when he is adopted by Kyle’s family. But Justin has issues of his own, including living up to his father’s expectations, and he isn’t interested in taking responsibility for his brother’s troubled dog. However, Max may be Justin’s only chance to discover what really happened to his brother that day on the front, and with the help of Carmen, a tough-talking young teen who has a way with dogs, Justin begins to appreciate his canine companion. Justin’s growing trust in Max helps the four-legged veteran revert back to his heroic self, and as the pair race to unravel the mystery, they find more excitement—and danger—than they bargained for. But they each might also find an unlikely new best friend…in each other.
