Max the dog does not want to give up his pacifier. Just watch how gently he resists his owner's attempts to yank it from his mouth; this pup is one stubborn (if not nostalgic) boy.
Pet owners on a dog-training Reddit thread have described similar experiences in which their dogs simply can't give up their pacifiers either. Many have hypothesized that this comfort-seeking behavior is analogous to a pup carrying around a blankie. Others think it may have something to do with a dog being weaned off its mother too soon.
