Hi, my name is Mr. Mac and I came from Yankton Sioux Reservation. I currently weigh 60 lbs.

My foster family affectionately calls me Mr. Sparkles or Sparky. I’m a people dog and a dog’s dog and while I’m not winning any spelling bees in the near future, I am a big loaf of love ready to soak up all that life has to offer! I am hoping my new family will be the outdoorsy kind because one of my favorite things is long walks and exploring. So much to sniff, so little time!

Young humans are a blast and I would love to play with them 24/7. I love them all, but my foster family thinks I’d do best with older children at this stage in my life because I’m not always careful and could knock down the youngsters. Speaking of playing, I absolutely love other dogs of all shapes and sizes and I am very respectful of them. My canine foster siblings are small chihuahua mixes and I’m even a-okay with them calling the shots! I really want my feline foster siblings to like me, but they don’t. They say I’m too loud and have too much energy. (Who listens to them anyway, am I right?) I wouldn’t hurt them, but I will need to learn how to behave around them in order to peacefully co-exist with one.

Since I grew up without a guarantee of a meal, I’m protective of my food and should eat my meals separately. I do well in my kennel and I am happy to eat my meals there, but I may bark and therefore probably couldn’t live in an apartment for this reason. My foster family says I'm mostly potty trained with frequent breaks but haven't mastered the art of telling them when I need to go yet. I’m not too high maintenance, but a few things I would really love in my forever home is a fenced-in yard and a canine sibling.

If you're reading this and picturing my big, goofy face by your side... What are you waiting for? Let's get this party started!
