Mack is downright handsome!  He is a 2-3 year old, 48 lb. Australian Kelpie mix who is extremely intelligent and eager to please.

Mack would be a great running companion for someone that doesn't take the run too seriously.  He runs 3-4 miles several times a week, but he's not especially fast and likes to take breaks.  He is good on a leash, and would be happy in a home with regular walks.  Mack also enjoys training sessions and quickly picks up new tricks/commands.  Mack knows: Sit, Down, Shake, High Five, Paw, Paws up.  He'll learn anything for treats!

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.  It seems Mack was not well socialized as a pup, so new experiences and unfamiliar objects can scare him, but given some patience, he learns some of his fears are unwarranted (like fear of a bubble wand).  He will need someone that understands positive reinforcement and has dog ownership experience. 

Mack enjoys direct play with humans or dogs, rather than toys (although he'll pick up a toy from time to time).  He is a goof ball that will dive head first into a lap and collapse on himself in play.  He gets along well with other dogs in the home and in public - he is non-reactive to other dogs, which makes walks a joy.  (The dog across the street will bark like crazy and Mack may be curious, but will not jump or bark back.)

Mack would enjoy a playful pup in his forever home, but it's not a necessity if given lots of physical and mental stimulation.  Mack and the resident 'closet kitty' are very loving together - he is gentle and lets her nuzzle his snout. He prefers women, but is great with men once he gets familiar with them. 

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.
