Meet Mack, a 5 yr old, 37 lb very active boy who is very agile whose talents are able to climb a hog wire or cyclone style fence. He’s so talented that he can jump straight up to 4 feet. We have witnessed him jump up into a tree 5 foot high and we feel he would have kept climbing if we didn’t have him come down. Yes, Mack is full of talent and entertainment!
When Mack first came to us, he was all about the water fowl in our area, now he has learned all about “Squirrels” and will hold a point for a long time so we know he found them! Mack has an amazing nose and just guessing, with work he could become an amazing scent/tracking/trailing dog….hunting would not be out of the question either.
Mack has a high need for attention….and I mean HIGH! He looks for a hand that will give him a pat or belly rub and will crawl into your lap for some major snuggling. He also would be happy just sitting beside you as long as you give him love. Max is extremely affectionate and loves to be around his people. Mack is currently living with 2 other Brittanys and they get along great, sharing different dog beds and playing in the yard together.
Mack sleeps in his wire crate at night and stays in the crate when we need to leave our home for a bit. We reward him by giving him just a little treat for going in each time. On top of all the above, Mack knows sit, down, up, wait, stay and readily and quickly comes to his name when called. Mack is very eager to continue to learn using positive, reward-based training methods.
Mack’s only downfall is that he doesn’t like it if dogs rush up on him or do so by barking/growling/snarling. We don’t know a whole lot about his past, but something happened that makes him react like his life is being threaten when that happens and he will react in like kind which isn’t good.
Mack’s ideal home would be one where he could be the only dog or, if like ours, has other dogs that won’t rush him and scare him. He ignores our grandchildren which are 10 and 7. He just wants to be loved and to give love to someone who needs it as bad as him. Are you the one? IF SO, please complete the online application and mention his name and ID# so we can get back to you and talk to you about Mack.
Mack came to us via another rescue who was overcrowded and needed our help. He was surrendered to that shelter because he “kept getting his legs caught in the fence”. That’s all we have of his past, but we are concentrating on the present to preare him for his future.
