Photo Gallery | PHOTOS: Cutest K-9 Of The Week

Meet this week’s “Cutest K-9,” Max , an 8-month-old Dachshund Terrier mix who lives in Arlington, Va.

This lovable pup was adopted from K-9 Lifesavers rescue at 8 weeks old, and just celebrated his 8-month-old birthday with a 4th of July cake.

Just like any 8-month-old, Max loves to take naps, and has a pacifier that he uses frequently.

Max is very friendly, energetic, and playful, and loves meeting new people, and other animals. He adores digging up the yard and chase birds, and has a favorite terry cloth squeaky toy that his dad and him play fetch with.

Max is very affectionate and loves to give kisses. He loves to cuddle, and hates being ignored.

This adorable Dachshund/terrier mix is our eighth featured K-9. Every Friday, we will feature one adorable dog. Do you think your dog has what it takes to be named your neighborhood's cutest K-9? If so, then we want to hear from you!

Send your photos to wusa-webproduction@wusa9.com where we will vote on the cutest pup.

Your four-legged friend could have the chance to be featured on our website.

Good luck, and we hope you have a paw-tastic Friday!
