Description

Big, handsome Mack is a strong boy.  He needs to learn leash manners, as a dog of his size can be difficult to handle on a leash.  Mack is such a sweet boy.  He has been very friendly with our volunteers.  He really seems to enjoy going for drives, as when he sees a vehicle door open he wants to jump in.  Mack did spend part of his life tied up on a chain, so he probably needs to learn house manners.  While at the shelter he did participate in play groups with other dogs.

Updates

Mack has been with us for a while now and we have learned a lot about him. Everyone that comes into contact with Mack at the kennel loves him and his tail wags! He can be so sweet, and everyone he meets is a friend. He loves car rides and is very quiet when traveling. Mack is very smart and is not only learning better leash manners, but is a very willing participant in learning sit, down, and place - as long as you have a toy or treat to reward his efforts. He will play fetch, and is learning to bring the toy back and drop it on command. Mack is a sweet boy, and can be such a big teddy bear, but he also needs an experienced handler who will provide structure, training and consistent handling so he can learn his place in a home environment and does not try to take over. If you think you have what it takes to offer Mack what he needs to thrive, please let us know, we'll set you up with an introduction!

Mack has been with his foster family for a little over a week and has settled in nicely. Mack listens and sometimes he sleeps at his foster's feet. When Mack gets excited, he gets really excited. When Mack's humans head for the door, Mack runs to the door and jumps around, so he has to be calmed down before taking him out. Once Mack knows to listen, he walks nicely. Mack is very active for a four year old, and sometimes he seems more like a two year old. Mack needs a strong hand to keep him in line so that he will be a good canine citizen. Mack likes sleeping in doggy beds and is both housebroken and crate trained. Mack is becoming a dedicated dog to his foster family. If Mack sounds like he could be a good fit for your family, ask to meet him.

Mack's foster reports he is a very sweet boy and dedicated to his humans. Mack loves attention. When Mack's humans are at the dinner table, Mack goes and lays down until dinner is done. Mack is very treat motivated - knows where his treats are kept and will let his humans know when he wants one. In the evenings, Mack wanders upstairs and jumps up on the bed and lays down, until he hears somebody move and then he comes running downstairs to make sure he doesn't miss anything. At night time, Mack sleeps on his doggie bed all night and does great in the crate when he's in it. Mack is recommended for older kids, but very friendly with everyone. Mack lays down for belly rubs, likes to give paws, is good with other dogs, loves to go for car rides, is easy to walk with a human who is in control of him during the walk. Mack is patiently waiting for his fur-ever home - could that home be yours?
