Max — a 7-year-old American Staffordshire Terrier that guards and plays chase with gorillas Koko and Ndume — stands next to the “doggy language board” at the Gorilla Foundation.

Like Koko, while Max is very powerful (a perfect companion for a gorilla), he can also be extremely sweet and gentle with those he considers family.

And while Max”s bark can sometimes jangle the nerves of humans, it seems to delight the gorillas.
