Mac used to be a sire dog for breeding and is generally very friendly to people. He enjoys gentle rubs on the ears and back and could be very affectionate. Though at dog salons he bites the chain to release his nervousness but never bites human. At vet’s, Mac hates to be held tight in place, but he will take blood test calmly without external force.
Being kept indoor for most of his life, Mac gets very excited when he goes out for walks. When he is having too much fun, he might not react to people’s calling and commands. Therefore, it is recommended not to let him off leash outside except for dog parks.
Overall, Mac is very territorial. He would try to pee and mark wherever he can to claim territories outside. He also barks when hearing vehicles driving by the house, and growls at other dogs when they get close to him. Mac is also a bit “clean freak” when it comes to potty. Although hasn’t been trained to pee or poop at certain spots in house, Mac never does so at where he considers home and always holds it until out of the house. He has very easy-going diet habits but might guard foods towards other dogs.
At the moment, Mac is looking for a patient and lovely new home to settle in Canada.
