Macintosh is ready to be the apple of your eye! A one to two-year-old Boxer-Pit mix, Macintosh arrived on June 15th at the Mercer County Animal Shelter in West Virginia, where he was originally called Guinness. It was bad enough to be a Bully Breed mix at this rural shelter, but in late August a hoarding case was about to cause an influx of 50 dogs to the shelter. Macintosh was now one of the top five dogs on the shelter’s euthanasia list.
On August 24th, Karol Gordon, RADAR’s liaison with the shelter, requested our help for Macintosh. We agreed to assist. Karol then reached out to Operation Paws for Homes rescue in Virginia. While they were interested, they needed to first secure a foster. On August 26th, a foster was found and Macintosh was safe! He had his initial vetting and neutering done on August 31st.
“He is an awesome boy!” says Macintosh’s foster. “He absolutely loves to play and thinks other dogs are great playmates. He has medium energy. He’s good on a leash, crate trained, house trained and wonderful with people and other dogs!” To view more photos of Macintosh, click here.
RADAR paid $150 towards the initial vetting and neutering costs for Macintosh.
