Maxon’s book is titled “Becoming Lady: A Rescued Golden’s Journey From Lonely to Loved.” She is the founder of the Therapy Dog Program for Canine Angels, Inc., a nonprofit that rescues shelter dogs and trains them as service dogs for disable veterans. Since Maxon started the therapy program, more than 30 handlers and their dogs have been certified as Canine Angel Therapy Teams.
According to Maxon, she and Lady share sunrise beach walks, a king-sized bed, an aging Subaru, and their hearts with a second Golden Retriever named Bode. The three-pack lives in Ocean Isle Beach, NC.
