LISTING FOR SHELTER SERVICE
This handsome dog’s name is Mac, and he is Fredericton’s latest dog in need of a forever home.
Mac is an (almost) 8 year old Husky/Shepherd mix, and weighs in at approximately 115 pounds. Mac has been well cared for throughout his life as a family dog, and is now looking for the perfect home to spend the rest of his golden years.
Mac requires a home able to provide him with the mental and physical stimulation he needs. Aside from early signs of arthritis in his hips, Mac is healthy and up to date on all vaccinations. Mac does suffer from anxiety and can be destructive when left alone during the day all by himself. For this reason, we would love to find Mac a home where he will have a human companion by his side throughout the day.
Mac will wander if not leashed, and therefore we are looking for a home with a fenced-in yard. Mac does well with other large dogs, and we think having a dog-sibling would be great for Mac to help him handle his anxiety, especially when left alone. Mac does have a strong prey drive and given his large size, he would not do well in a home with cats or other small animals. Mac also pulls when walking on leash, therefore his next owner will need to be able to handle walking a dog of his size. Mac should not go to a home with young children.
Once Mac warms up to you and forms a bond, he is a loving dog who just wants to spend his time with his person. Mac is neutered and up to date on vaccinations.
