This leggy boy arrived into rescue 3 months ago after an animal control officer noticed him eating scraps out of a McDonalds bag on the side of the road. We expected that Big Mac would have landed an adoptive home without delay. But a bout of demodex, a non-contagious but common skin condition in puppies who have lived in less than optimal conditions, left Macs velvety black coat sparse for a couple of months and possibly detracted from his admirers. Macs beautiful coat has returned and he has evolved into a stunningly handsome young man.
When he first arrived, it was anyones guess as to Macs breed mix. He had the cutest Jack Russell-ish button ears that seemed misplaced on his otherwise Labrador body.  Now at 6 months of age, Macs ears have relaxed, and he has kept within his predicted medium-sized range as an adult and only weighs 32 lbs. He will probably reach approximately 45 lbs, fully grown, but is mostly made up of his long legs to which he is getting accustomed in his gawky teenage stage.  Of course, Mac still thinks of himself as the mere armful of hungry puppy we met upon arrival. He still wants to snuggle, give kisses, and act silly all in your lap. Mac remains a mystery mix, but his Labrador heritage is much more obvious now that he is a bit older. He loves using his long front legs and gently boxes to initiate play or get attention. Like most puppies who have recently discovered that the height afforded by their adolescent legs allow them to reach their humans, Mac jumps to greet, but training is in progress. This affable goof would be a great addition to any home, including a first-time pet owner who is willing to do all of the usual puppy stuff, including obedience classes, at which we would expect this intelligent boy to excel. 
Mac knows sit and is crate trained. The mentor dogs in his foster home did a wonderful job of house-training Mac, and he signals at the door when he needs to potty. He is mindful of the cats in his home, and pretty much loves everyone he meets and adores kids. Big Mac possesses a lively energy that will be appreciated by active families who want a canine companion for walks, a game of fetch, or other fun activities. 

Considering this puppy boys meager beginning, he deserves to spend the rest of his life knowing he will always have a family to care for him.  
Mac is current on age-appropriate vaccinations, neutered and microchipped. Current on flea preventative and heartworm preventative. Puppies should remain socialized to other dogs in their formative stages, so homes that can provide exposure to fully vaccinated and healthy well-behaved adult dogs is strongly preferred. Preference will also be given to homes where someone is home more frequently than the typical 8 hr workday, or is able to break up the day, allowing adolescent pups to still receive the regular human interaction vital in this developmental stage.
