Introducing McIntosh (Mac). MacIntosh was found as a stray along with a companion boxer. Sadly the owner did not claim either dog. The other dog was adopted but Mac was left at the shelter. This is probably the first time Mac was ever without his buddy, and the first time in a noisy, very scary shelter. He became very shut down and would not move. He would hide at the back of the run in fear whenever a human approached. Mac had to be picked up in order to get him out of the shelter and into our volunteer's car.

We are working slowly with Mac, giving him lots of treats and positive reinforcement. He is still very shut down but we are able to get him out of his run and out for walks. He perks up when other dogs are around but is still very shy with them. We are just taking it a day at a time, trying to build on the confidence gained. We are pleased that he is making good progress. He is a very sweet and handsome boy whose entire world was turned around. He is very difficult to evaluate when he is so shut down, so we'll post his personality as we get to know him. The good news is that he doesn't have fear aggression, no growling, no attempting to bite or anything of that sort.
