Mac was adopted at 4 months of age by the pastor of one of our volunteers. He returned to his foster home in December 2022 after emergency surgery for bloat, a life-threatening condition. Sadly Mac's former owner had passed away in a tragic accident on November 28th and our vet believes that the stressfulness of suddenly being separated from him and all that ensued led to the condition. Fortunately, Mac distress was noted and the condition caught early enough to be corrected with surgery. Mac is now healed and can go to a new home. He is still somewhat anxious, and would do best as an only dog, the environment to which he had been accustomed for most of his life. He does play with the dogs in his foster home, but appears to be somewhat dominant and if there is another dog in the home, it is best that dog be female and non-dominant.
Mac will require a home that is willing to provide daily walks. He does well with children, but is best suited for a home with no or teenage children, that is quiet rather than toddlers or a home with a lot of busy-ness. Mac's ideal environment would be one where his owner works from home often. He is used to someone being home most of the time, and would not adjust well to being left home alone for a traditional 8 hr workday.
Mac is current on vaccinations, neutered, and microchipped. Current on monthly heartworm preventative, and has tested negative for heartworms.
*Local adoptions (New Orleans and surrounding parishes) preferred. We do NOT ship animals
Our adoptions include a foster period of 4-6 weeks so that you can be sure that this pet is a good fit without any pressure, and we are available to answer any behavior or training questions during that time (and beyond, if you wish).
