Mac • Male • 7 months • Adopted!  Please return to

MAC is a gentle giant. At seven months of age and 60 pounds, this pup has some growing to do. MAC is a big fan of bones and toys but mostly MAC wants to enjoy his family and be included in all of their activities. He’ll curl up on the couch if we are watching TV, or if the other dogs have occupied the available spots he’ll plant himself on one of the dog beds. If you are heading outside he will wag his tail and head for the door. When we head to bed he goes into his crate, gladly and gently accepts his treat, then stays quiet ‘til morning.


MAC is crate trained though naturally he prefers to be free. He is good until he spots you, then he wants out to join in all the fun. He is also house-trained, going accident free since joining his foster family. He learned quickly to use the doggy door so he does go in and out pretty regularly throughout the day. MAC is a smart boy who knows sit & comes when called. He loves treats and praise which should help in his training. And how can you not love those light brown eyebrows and curled up tail!

MAC is micro-chipped, neutered, heart worm negative and on preventative, and up to date on vaccinations. If you have an approved Northern California Border Collie Rescue & Adoptions Application and wish to enquire about MAC please email us at If you have an approved adoption application with Border Collie Rescue of Northern California let us know and we will request it be forwarded to us for consideration. MAC is being fostered outside of Cornish in Tehama County, California.
