Whether it’s pedigree pups or mangy mutts, decorators’ dogs are valued members of staff at embroidery and print shops from Barking to Furness. This month we have Max from Giraffe Graphics in Chesterfield, Derbyshire

Max from Giraffe Graphics

Max denied ever meeting the Ralawise rep, let alone climbing into their bag

Full name: Max Blackwell

Breed: Jack Russell cross

Age: Six years old

Employment history: In February 2016, Max was specially selected to be drafted into the office from the RSPCA due to his loud barking skills and cuteness

Job title: Chief security officer of Giraffe Graphics

Job description: To bark at everyone who walks past the office and to decide which jackets in the catalogues are the most suitable for wearing on walkies

Special skill: Max can turn a black hoodie white in seconds. He also can – and does – jump into the suitcase of the Ralawise rep without being invited

Favourite colour: Orange (Pantone 151), like his giraffe teddy
