Mack is a sweet boy, about 1 year
old. He is a good-sized male, and well built. He is
sweet and quiet, and loves to go for a walk. He is very
obedient on a leash.
Just after Mack arrived at the
rescue, he had a small seizure. Our veterinarian looked at
him, but could not find anything wrong. Mack went into a
foster home so that he could get a little extra TLC, and so that
we could observe him further. Mack was doing great, and
really seemed to be coming out of his shell. He is turning
into the bouncy, friendly one-year-old that we knew he should
be. His favorite thing to do is to run down the beach and
chase the seagulls.
to our surprise and disappointment, he had another seizure.
Although we had been hoping that the first seizure was a
"one-time" incident, that turned out not to be the
case. Our veterinarian is doing further testing to find out
the cause of the seizure. Hopefully, we will be able to
control the problem with medication, but Mack will probably need
to be on that medication for the rest of his life.
ideal home would be with a family who is diligent about giving him
his daily medication, and who understands that Mack needs a little
extra love and understanding. He is a great dog, and his
condition should not stand in the way of him leading a healthy and
happy life. And this guy is worth a little extra effort!
has been in a foster home for the past few months so that he could
get the medical treatment that he needs. His foster family
has fallen in love with Mack, and has decided to become his
permanent home. They have had new sod put
into their yard for Mack and he even has his very own sofa to lay
on! He is truly a member of this loving family. Congratulations, Mack!
