Adoptable Dog of the Week – Macon

This adorable velcro pooch will want nothing more than to always be by your side! Our Adoptable Dog of the Week is Macon, a 2-year-old Border Collie and Labrador Retriever mix from Raleigh, North Carolina. He is neutered, up to date on his vaccinations, microchipped, and housetrained. Macon is good with other dogs and gets along with cats, but needs a family without any small children in the household.


Macon’s Tale

Affectionate and loyal, Macon is the definition of a shadow or velcro dog – he’ll always be nearby, looking to be included in everything you do and spend some quality time with his favorite person. He bonds strongly with his people and warms up quickly, so you’ll get to meet this side of him in no time. Even though snuggling and cuddling are his fave activities, Macon is far from a couch potato pooch – he’s energetic and needs active owners that can keep up with him.


Macon is potty trained, crate trained, and walks well on a leash, so he’s more than ready to go to his new furever home. He does need an experienced owner, though, to work with him on his social skills as he can get spooked sometimes and may bark at people when he’s scared, and training can help him overcome this fearfulness. Macon does great with other friendly dogs and even gets along with cats, so he would be wonderful for a family with other pets. Due to his anxiety, it’s recommended that he goes to an adult-only home or a family with older children.


If you think Macon would fit into your lifestyle and you can offer what he needs to thrive, contact Second Chance Pet Adoptions to learn more about him and the adoption process. Fingers crossed – he’s really a catch!
