MAC IN A NUTSHELL: Excellent temperament; some formal training. Gets along with other dogs. Active gentleman that needs a buddy and a job.
Mac first came into our rescue as Chalo back in October of last year and was very quickly accepted into the Soldier's Best Friend program based on his temperament. His name was immediately changed to Mac by his new training partner.

Chalo's size and excellent temperament made him the perfect service dog to assist with lifting and steadying a veteran; however, after xrays were taken he was found not to have the perfect hips that SBF requires for such a physically demanding job -- his hips were "borderline."
