Mac (ID# 1203258) is a 3 year old, male chocolate American Pit Bull Terrier mix weighing 69 pds. Mac is just a big cuddly teddy bear! Mac didn’t have much of a life before coming to our shelter. Now Mac has an enthusiasm for life, is a very smart boy and has nothing but love to give his future people. His volunteer BFF has worked with him on his leash training and does quite well in a secure harness. He is so much fun to watch during his “play time” chasing a toy rather “prancing” after it and he looks like a deer leaping across the yard. He enjoys a little game of tag too. He is a very affectionate happy dog now. He loves cushy thick soft blankets and beds even kneading them with his paws in appreciation. He’d love to share your couch and bed. What Mac desires most is having a human bond and relationship. He’d benefit from continued training for his enthusiastic hugging and jumping up occasionally but his BFF will be happy to give you all the info you will need. Our staff says Mac would be best with kids 10 and over due to his active nature and burly size. He would be best as your only fur-baby and that way he will surely get his full time human connection that he craves. If your kind of companion is a big loving affectionate teddy bear with some energy but will offer you so much love, fun and smiles in return then hurry on over to the Eastside shelter, 8920 Lomas Blvd NE. Be sure to bring in your entire family to meet him. Mac has enriched our lives so much and some very lucky person will get to have him enrich their lives forever more than you would think possible.
