When selecting a Mayor the qualities you would look for in a candidate would be loyalty, intelligence, well mannered... Ok so I'm basically describing a dog but Idyllwild has elected a Golden Retriever as their Mayor!

 Don't believe me? 

Mayor Max was first elected 5 years ago and has been Mayor ever since. However, Maximus isn't the first doggo to take the title of mayor in the town of Idyllwild, as Max's uncle actually became the town's first mayor back in 2012. 

Phyllis Mueller, Mayor Max's Chief of Staff, told ABC;

"Six years ago, Idyllwild decided to elect its first mayor," 

"You had to be a local resident, but you couldn't run yourself, you could run your pet. In a voted election, 14 dogs and two cats ran and we decided to have an election to raise money for the animal rescue. So you paid $1 a vote and you were encouraged to vote a lot."
