Max Potter, the Magic Pig Dog
In the first book, 'Hairy Max Potter and the Sorcerer's Bone', we meet an amazing and very hairy dog named Max Potter that looks like a pig and can make bones appear out of thin air. Hairy Max Potter is fighting an evil force led by the Dog-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named. On his way to the dog groomer's, Hairy Max Potter meets an ordinary boy named Harry and they decide to team up, since the boy has opposable thumbs and can carry a wand.
Six books later, after many adventures, Max Potter and his boy are against the Dog-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named in the fight of their life. Max Potter has developed a reputation for being a small but mighty force against all evil (and anything else that moves) and struts around on his leash when he goes out with his boy for his 'poop-walk'. One day while they were out walking, Max and his boy see Dog-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named who is also out on a 'poop-walk.' As the two dogs approach each other they growl fiercely. Then Dog-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named lunges at Max and his boy, and Max narrowly avoids death by conjuring up a big bone to distract Dog-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named so he runs in another direction. When Max gets back home he happily eats his dinner and boasts about how fierce he is to all the neighbor dogs, who keep a wary distance.
