Their black Ford Expedition is still missing, but the family expressed that they are just happy to have their loved one back.
"We would like to thank everyone for the outpouring love and support that we received while he was missing and continue to receive now that he his home," the family said to KRDO NewsChannel 13.
They added that Max will be working at D&D Liquor in Manitou Springs all day on Tuesday if you wanted to stop by, give him some love, and hear his story.
