Mackie

This silver fox will melt your heart. Mackie is a gorgeous, older gentleman with an unmistakable silver face and brindle coat with silver highlights. That gorgeous face is highlighted by his smile and twinkle in his eyes. He’s a tall, long legged fellow whose tail may be the fastest wagger around. He’s an average size male, maybe just a bit larger, but he’ll gently cuddle with you on the couch, but only if you invite him.

Mackie lives with another foster female and the 2 of them have healed together and learned how to play, share, go for walks and sunbathe. It helps to have a buddy sometimes when you’re learning humans don’t always hit and kick you, some love and pet you and keep you safe. Mackie really likes having his own “room” and goes into his crate often; his safe place and comfort zone. He is house and crate trained and does well on leash until he sees a squirrel. An easy-walk or gentle leader harness and patience will take care of that.

Mackie is healthy with the usual stuff for an 8 year old. He is heartworm negative and fully vetted. He’s good with other dogs but we don’t know about cats or kids, although that squirrel issue says he’s probably not a fit with cats. Mackie just seems to be so appreciative of positive, loving attention from people it suggests he didn’t get much before ABR. He is a love and a gentle silver fox.
