If you ask Macdriver what his perfect day is, he'll tell you it starts by cuddling with his human. Then he'll enjoy his long walk and will want to come back home to explore the backyard. He'll even try to climb a tree. He'll take a nap, snuggle gently with his stuffed toy and take another walk. When the sun goes down, he'll lounge happily, enjoy a nighttime cuddle and go off to his crate. Such a sweet, easygoing boy!

Now in foster care, Mac loves his leash walks. He's friendly to dogs he sees and has no reaction to people and cars - just interested in squirrels. Back home, he loves getting cuddles, petting, scratches and belly rubs. But he's also independent. He snoozes under a desk while his foster works or goes off to nap in another room. He likes and respects visitors and has been friendly with a teenager, and he gets compliments from people he meets everywhere.

This curious, observant boy is very smart. He enjoys training and understands most commands, wanting to please his foster and answering nicely to them. He is house-trained and sleeps nicely in his crate, doing well when his foster is away.

Mac will love to move into his forever home with parents who like taking him for walks or even short jogs he enjoys. Parents who have fun training and are familiar with Shepherds could be a plus. He should live well with a dog buddy, but will be happy as the only pet. Come meet him. He'll tell you his perfect day includes following you home!
