Meet Mac!

Mac is a 5 year old neutered lab mix that was confiscated by animal control due to abuse and neglect. He was starved, had heart worms and non-contagious mange which was causing some skin rashes. Due to his horrific living conditions, his immune system has been seriously compromised, but he is on his way to becoming healthy – we are just waiting for all his fur to finally grow back and it will grow back! He’s turning into quite the handsome boy. He is receiving allergy shots which we hope will help clear up the skin condition also.

He is a very sweet dog, but does need someone that will be patient with him and understand what his previous life was like. He has gotten along well with his foster’s three submissive dogs and also deferred to a second foster dog in the house, a somewhat alpha female. However, he is not good with all dogs, and would do best in a home as an only dog, or with another submissive dog.

Mac is currently being cared for by Lab Rescue of the Labrador Retriever Club of the Potomac, They are an all-volunteer, non-profit organization (Non-Profit Tax I.D. 52-1880024) with a two-fold mission: (1) to rescue, foster and place homeless, abused, and/or abandoned Labrador Retrievers (and Golden Retriever-Labrador Retriever mixes) and (2) to provide a referral service for owners seeking to place their Labradors in new homes.
