Mac is about 14 years old and he’s a delightful West Highland White Terrier who is now in an Oldies Club foster home in Spennymoor, County Durham awaiting his new home. Mac loves to meet other dogs on a walk, and if they are a bit too bouncy with him he just ignores them. Mac hasn’t lived with other dogs previously but his foster carer thinks that he might like having a canine friend, as long as they weren’t too young and boisterous for him.
Mac has never lived with cats. In foster care, when he saw next door’s cat he trotted after it as if he was just interested. His foster carer thinks he wouldn’t ever catch a cat. Mac hasn’t lived with children but has been used to having them visit. In foster, he has been fine with children he has met on walks, so he could potentially live with older children, but it wouldn’t be fair to expect him to begin to live with young children. He should be fine with having young children visit though.
Mac’s favourite pastimes: Eating! Going for a walk. Having his ears and tummy tickled. He likes a little game with a soft toy after his tea. Mac’s dislikes is nothing really, though he’s not keen on having his tail and paws interfered with. Mac’s ideal home is a quiet life in a warm, comfortable retirement home with regular meals, a nice soft bed and a steady routine. He doesn’t manage steps very well and wouldn’t like to live somewhere with access up or down a flight of stairs.
Mac is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and has been wormed and flea treated. He has no real health problems needing treatment but is rather stiff in his back end – he hardly ever sits, he prefers to stand or lie down. He will need to be groomed at regular intervals.
