His face is a mass of deep cuts, as are his shoulders and neck. Both of his front legs have been broken, but Mighty Max isn't ready to quit. At the referee's signal, his master releases him, unable to support himself on his front legs, he slides on his chest across the blood and urine stained carpet, propelled by his good hind legs, toward the opponent who rushes to meet him. Driven by instinct, intensive training and love for the owner who has brought him to this moment, Mighty Max drives himself painfully into the other dog's charge. Less than twenty minutes later, rendered useless by the other dog, Mighty Max lies spent beside his master, his stomach constricted with pain. He turns his head back toward the ring, his eyes glassy, searching for a last look at the other dog as Mighty Max receives a bullet to his head.
