Mack is ready to find his perfect forever home!
Mack was surrendered when he got into the, not at all appreciated, habit of bypassing KFC and going straight under the coop and directly for the chickens with whom he grudgingly shared the farm where he lived. His first family couldn’t stop that behavior, so they put him on Craig’s List, and from there a Good Samaritan purchased him. From the looks of things, it was clear he needed to see a vet; so his Good Samaritan made that happen. He was examined and it became obvious he had some kind of underlying health issue given the skin sores, hair loss, and pot belly that he presented with. Eventually, it was determined that he had Cushing’s Disease. It was decided Mack should come into the care of FBLCR where he has been receiving great veterinary and diligent home care. He is doing very well now, although in addition to his Cushing’s, Mack also has chronic dry eye, and some of those little teeth were not so much cute as rotten and have had to be extracted.
Mack would do well in a quiet home, with a fenced yard, and most importantly NO RESIDENT BIRDS. Older children in the household would be ok. Mack can get snarky with other dogs, especially if they come around his crate while he is in it, although he could maybe share his household with a laid-back dog who wouldn’t try to get all up in Mack’s business and/or invade his space.
Mack‘s ideal home, because of his medical issues, would include someone with experience monitoring changes in health and knowing the importance of being consistent with daily supplements, medications, eye drops, and the like. Having a trusted vet who knows how to deal with Cushing’s Disease as it ebbs and flows is also a necessity for Mack‘s future. But here’s a bonus: Mack enjoys going to the vet! We suspect it’s because he is so very handsome and the people there treat him like a rock star.
Mack is house- and crate-trained, which are two great pluses, although he does need a consistent schedule for taking him outside to maintain that housetraining. He is playful in short spurts, but mostly he likes to take walks and snuggle! He loves to snuggle, so anyone who is yearning for a snuggle pup, he’s got you covered! Mack would also be a good companion to take to work, if you have that kind of job, so long as you take frequent snuggle breaks!
