Mac, a Rhodesian Ridgeback, has gone through his share of hardships over the years, but the Arizona Humane Society is hopeful that he’ll find his forever home soon.

When 6-year-old Mac was first brought to AHS in 2013, his entire back was charred due to chemical burns. It took two surgeries, laser therapy, bandage changes and months of care in a foster home to help heal Mac’s injuries, AHS said. Through it all, officials say his tail never stopped wagging.

Over the last few years, the pup has lived in a home where he underwent obedience training and learned how to socialize with other dogs. He also learned how to bond with children. 

Unfortunately, due to the landlord’s rules, his current owners had to get rid of him and now Mac is back at the AHS facility. 

According to AHS, the permanent scars on Mac’s back has deterred potential owners from giving him a second glance. However, AHS says he’s well mannered, affectionate and would be a great addition to a loving family. 

Mac would be best in a home without small critters or cats. His adoption fee is $200 and includes his neuter surgery, vaccinations and microchip.
