Mac is friendly as can be, and he'll get along great with your kids, dogs or cats. He's already neutered, microchipped and vaccinated. He has mastered his house-training etiquette.
Here's what Mac's friends at Guardian Angel Dog Rescue think of him:
Meet Mac! He's three years old and about 14 pounds of sweetness! He was surrendered to our rescue due to his elderly owner's health. It's amazing how fast he warms up; he will follow you around the house and likely want to sleep next to you. Trust us! You will fall in love with this little fella.
