Max found Captain Stumpy in a trash can outside of his favorite charity center. People take their old clothes and toys there for others to look through and purchase at low prices. Someone apparently thought that the ragedy old bunny wasn't worth trying to sell. Max almost cried when he saw the sad little bunny's face gazing up at him from amongst the trash. He took Stumpy home and patch him up. One of his legs was missing, and an eye, but that's okay! Max loves all of him! Trent did insist on a thorough washing, though.
