Mac is looking for a new place to call home

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Today's Tuesday's Tail  is ‘Big Mac' or Mac. 

Mac was originally brought to Pima Animal Care Center by an Officer after he was attacked and seriously injured in early December, 2014. PACC Vet Staff were able to successfully treat Mac for his injuries and he was adopted in January.  Unfortunately his story does not end there. 

Mac was returned the first week of April after he was attacked by a stray dog in his new owner's yard. 

PACC's wonderful Veterinary Staff stepped in again and decided that his injuries were treatable. Mac has a very effervescent personality and he does not appear to have suffered any lasting effects from his accidents. 

This amazing pup is around two years old, he walks well on a leash and enjoys hanging out in someone's lap.

On a good note, last week's Tail, Dixie was adopted, lets see if we can help Mac find his forever home. 

PACC is located at 4000 N. Silverbell Road. Why not stop by and see if Mac is a fit for your home?

    The study found that owners of hunting breeds like terriers, retriever and scent hounds got the most protection, but the study's senior author said that owning any dog was enough to reduce an owner's risk of death.

    A puppy who was born without a leg and fitted with a prosthetic may one day be a service animal to help humans who have had limbs amputated.
