Mac is a gorgeous young boy that is looking for his forever home. Mac is an absolute people lover and is always excited to make new friends. He is very strong and smart, but does need to learn some manners. He would do best in a home with experienced dog parents who have worked with training high energy dogs. We have seen major improvements in his behavior already, and are confident that he will thrive with a family that is committed to his training. Mac loves being outside and playing fetch and would love a family that has an active lifestyle. Mac can be reactive when he sees other dogs and would do best in a home where he is the only fur baby.
Do you think you could be Mac’s person? Here are some ways to find out:
1.) Visit our centre to meet this pet during adoption viewings Friday to Tuesday noon to 3pm, learn more about their ideal match, and apply to adopt in person; or
2.)Submit an online application adopt.spca.bc.ca and staff will contact the first suitable adopter to set-up a visit! Kindly note that due to the high number of applications and the availability of walk-in adoptions an online applicant would have to be available to come in for a meet within 24 hrs.
