Welcome to your new life. Mack was surrendered to RAGOM when his family no longer had time for him. Mack will turn three on November 30th. He has been vetted and is up-to-date on his shots and is heartworm-free. He tipped the scales at 74 lbs.

Mack has had no formal training and at times it shows. He has picked up a few things along the way; he does know "sit" and his name. He does have selective hearing, too. His foster brother Charlie turned 11 last April, so it's kind of a May/December relationship with "The Boys." They have been a bit of a work in progress. Mack adores Charlie, but is often too much for Charlie to keep up with. Slowly, Mack has been catching on to this and is trying to bring it down to Charlie's level.


This is Charlie's first time at being foster sibling solo, as he has always shared this with duty with his foster sister Zoey who left us back in June to cancer. They made a wonderful team, those two. I also noticed something with Charlie. He is enjoying having a buddy in the house again. Even if this new pal is a bit of a challenge often!


Charlie has always presented a problem, as in his mind, all the dog toys in the house are his. And I have been pushing the envelope on getting them introduced, as Mack needs something to chew on. Charlie, for the first time, is reluctantly sharing toys with Mack. One thing is games of tug have started. Charlie has not had a pal who was into that in a long time. Mack is totally housebroken and is fine with a full workday. The boys eat together a foot or two apart in the kitchen without issue.


We took a short road trip to a family who adopted my previous foster. Mack met him and his fur brother with ease and fit right in. It was nice to see Wesley 14-150 again and fully settled in his forever home. Walking well on a leash is a work in progress. Mack rides OK in a car.

Mack has already met a wonderful family for him. He joined the N family and all reports are good. He has a fur brother and a Dad who already loves him so very much. They have a history of adopting wonderful new furbutts in years ending with 5, I'm told. Mack, have a wonderful life.
