Almost every time Mack is on a walk or out in public, someone says, 'Wow, he's handsome!  What kind of dog is he?'  He is a ~2 year old, 48 lb. Australian Kelpie mix who is extremely intelligent and eager to please.

Mack enjoys running and long walks.  He's running 3+ miles 2 times a week at a 10-12 minute mile pace.  He is good on a leash, and has a beautiful gait.  Mack also enjoys training sessions and quickly picks up new tricks/commands.  Mack knows: Sit, Down, Shake, High Five, Paw, Paws up, pray.  He does well with stay in calm areas, is working on crawl, leave it, and barrier training (out of the kitchen). 

He is potty and crate trained, and he's working on doggie etiquette.  He is good with new people in public, but can be cautious with new people in his home (getting better).  Mack wants to be a good dog, and he has really improved in foster care.  He will need someone that understands positive reinforcement and may be willing to get additional training. 

Mack enjoys direct play with humans or dogs, rather than toys.  He seems to understand limits - he is very gentle in play with the 2 year old, but more rambunctious with foster dad.  He does well with the 2 female resident dogs and all dogs he has met in public, large and small.  Mack would enjoy a playful pup in his forever home, but not a necessity.  Mack and the resident 'closet kitty' are very loving together - he is gentle and lets her nuzzle his snout. He prefers women, but is fine with men - a home with consistent training and dog experience would be ideal. 

Mack has been neutered and is up to date on vaccinations. He has been treated for heartworms and tested negative on his retest. As long as he is kept on HW preventatives, it should never be an issue again.

Come Meet Our Pets...

To meet our pets, contact us about any dog/puppy you are interested in and we'll set up a meeting time/date between the adopter and foster home.

Our Adoption Process...

Adopters will complete an adoption app. If he/she has a pet, we will check their vet reference and a home visit is not needed (as long as the vet reference is current). All pets must be UTD , current on HW prev and S/N. If a home visit is needed we will compele that ASAP--as we don't want any delays in the adoption process. The adoption fee is $200 for dogs ad $250 for puppies. We spend an average of $300 on each dog/puppy, so the adoption fee helps pay for the vetting for future dogs we bring into the program. Their is a 5 day grace period to make sure he/she is a good fit for your family.
