Maxi, a homeless mutt in New York City, has always fended for himself. Then one day a kind taxi driver named Jim offers him friendship, a home, and a place in the front seat!


Stories like this restore my faith in humanity. Finding a homeless dog on the streets and just deciding, “You’re coming home with me” is a true act of kindness.


I like the idea of a taxi driver bringing their dog along on the job. More taxi services should do that. The taxi cabs would stink like dog breath but who cares. There’s a dog in the cab with you. Wouldn’t you love to see a face like this smiling at you from the front seat?

You always take a gamble when you ride in a taxi. The two biggest risks are you getting stuck in traffic and the price goes way up and you getting a crazy driver. I once had a crazy taxi ride in San Francisco and my parents and I were falling all over each other. My mom even ended up upside down (Just kidding but wouldn’t that be hilarious).
