Meet Mack - Courtesy Listing

Please read the dog's entire bio! This dog is not in our care, he is a courtesy listing for a private party, please reach out to them directly if you would like to meet him.
Mack is a 2 year old Boxer/Bulldog mix. Mack hasn't been blessed with much luck in his young life. Saved from euthanasia at 17 weeks of age by a veterinary hospital employee who paid for surgery for a rectal prolapse, his "savior" suffered a severe stroke a few months later and passed away leaving Mack with a grieving family unfamiliar with his medical condition. He lived outside for a year with chronic diarrhea and slowly losing weight to the point of severe malnutrition. By chance, he was discovered anemic and covered in flies and feces and was released to a veterinarian to diagnose and treat his condition. He was diagnosed and treated for histoplasmosis, a rare fungal disease. He developed liver failure from the antifungal medication, but his histoplasmosis was cleared by that time and his liver is now normal. He has gained 10 pounds and is healthy He is loving, good with other dogs and kids, doesn't bark, great on walks and is crate trained. He needs access to a yard because since his intestines were so damaged by the fungal disease and surgery, he needs to poop frequently and should wear a diaper in the house to avoid "an accident". He is house trained. He is 37 pounds..up from 26! He requires Hills W/D food as 50% of his diet. and potentially a few supplements lifelong. He needs a lucky break to find his forever home! If you would like to meet him please email Gail.renehan@vca.com.
