MAC is a 2 year old neutered black male Lab who weighs 90 pounds. Mac is a beautiful and sweet boy who was found by the side of the road with a broken leg. Lab Rescue made sure he got the lengthy medical care that he required. He's a happy-go-lucky typical lab. He is friendly with other dogs. He has shown a prey drive, so we're going to say no cats. From foster: Mac is walking well on the leash. He is now doing about 8 blocks 2 times a day and not having any issues. Occasionally you will see him resting his foot but he's not limping at all. Mac definitely needs a fenced in yard with a physical fence so he can wear off his energy. He will need to go to obedience training. He loved the kiddie pool when it was out in the warmer weather. He would probably benefit from swimming. Mac loves toys!!! the squeakier the better. He loves belly rubs, like any good lab would. When he meets folks during his walks, he is really happy to see them, gives a great lab lean, and gives them kisses. He barks at other dogs when encountering them on a walk but with tail wagging. He is very alert to squirrels and I think he would chase a cat for sure. He needs to go to a home where they will continue to increase his exercise until he reaches his full potential. Mac was a stray to the shelter after being hit by a car. He is approved for kids 10+.

Update:: Mac is enjoying his time with foster mom and playing with the resident lab. He loves to wrestle and play tug a war .This past week Mac has been laying low, as after playing a little rough his leg was sore. After resting for few days he is back to playing and looking for his forever home. He would love to have a large yard to play in and someone that would take him for lots of car rides. He loves the older kids he has met and has not meet a belly rub he did not like. Mac had a wonderful Thanksgiving. FM made some peanut butter and cherrios filled kongs and she let Mac lick the peanut butter jar.

Update: Mac is a 2yr old hunk of black love. He has been hanging out at FM house for 8 weeks leash walking and allowing the strength to return to his wrist. He had broken it and been in a cast for 4 months, long time to be on rest and wear the cone. Now he is ready to play and find his forever home. Mac is a big boy and needs to lose about 8-10lbs. He is on a green bean diet and now that he can run in the back yard and take long 1 mile walks twice a day, he will loose his extra weight soon. He is house and crate trained, although FM has left him roam the house for up to 4hr and he has not touched anything that is not his. He would love a household that is active, he enjoys kids and perhaps another playful dog. Last weekend he went to a soccer game and he was the girls biggest cheerleader. He laid or sat down by FM chair and was well behaved. Mac loves people and wants to give them all kisses. Everyone that meets him says he is gorgeous but a big boy. He is working on his leash walking skills, and needs an easy walk harness. He gets excited when he sees another dog but gets along great with the resident lab and beagle. He loves squeaky toys and either wrestling with the resident lab or playing tug. Mac loves car rides and taking hikes with the resident lab. He sleeps through the night but is an early riser.
