Capitol Hill Pets | Max the kind of a circus dog on E Roy

Max, a seven-year-old Corgi Spaniel mix and Luke were waiting on coffee outside of Joe Bar after CHS got a peak at the inside of the under-construction new home of the Mexican Consulate. Max, while adorable, was only interested in meeting on his terms. Originally from California, he made his way to Seattle and is kind of a circus dog. Like, “if you throw a balloon up, he’ll boop it up in the air with his nose.”
