Mac & Cheese

Adoption Status:Available
Age:4 months old
Breed:Shepherd Mix
Weight:16 lbs.


Mac & Cheese – Mr. Mac! Mac is a sweet and playful boy who will play ball, chase, and tug of war, then curl up in your lap for a nap. He loves playing with other dogs too, so we think he’ll do well in a home with a doggy brother or sister, or adopters who will take him to dog parks and other socialization opportunities.

He also enjoys exploring on walks in the neighborhood, so an adopter looking for a relatively active dog will be the best fit.

Mac is doing great with his potty training and will need his adopter to continue this training given his age. He has learned sit, lay down, and shake – he loves learning new commands!

We’re recommending a home with no children under 8 as younger children can overwhelm a puppy and/or have issues with the typical puppy mouthing. The vet thinks his adult weight could be 35 – 40 pounds, but we cannot predict for sure.

Mac’s foster family thinks he’s such a special boy and will make an awesome companion for his lucky adopter(s)!

Mac has all 3 rounds of puppy shots and his first rabies shot, so he’s ready to go on adventures with you! Mac’s adoption fee of $350.00 plus tax includes vet exam, age appropriate vaccinations up to the point of adoption, fecal test, wormer, neuter and microchip. The adoption fee goes directly towards vet care bills, food, supplies, etc. for our rescue dogs as we are an entirely volunteer-based organization.


If you live in the Austin, TX area and are interested in adopting, please fill out an application.

Please be aware that we rarely have information on our dogs being good with cats as most of our foster homes don’t have them.

Adoption decisions are based on the best overall match and not done on a first-come-first-serve basis.
