We adopted Mac (Max) in October 2009 – how time flies…

We had not contemplated having another dog after our wonderful GSD Kyle passed away in 2004 but in 2007 and 2009, we did 2 things.

In 2007 we took on a 5 month old black German Shepherd called Shadow we had gone to see from an advert, well he had a bald patch around one eye and obviously had a slight problem with his back legs but he was so happy to see us, we took him on straight away and never looked back. What a handsome dog he has turned out to be.

Not long after, I was looking at the GSD rescue site and we started to think it would be great if we could give another dog a home and keep our very laid back Shadow company!

Anyway, I sent my details off thinking it would take ages to hear anything and within 2 weeks, we got a call to say they might have a match! Wow. Excited, we went to see Mac, a 13 month old white German Shepherd. We went to meet Liz and took Shadow and Mac out for a long walk and they got on really well! 2 weeks later and he was in our family!

What a character, he was full and I mean full of energy lol – I don't think our laid back Shadow knew what hit him. But what a loving, faithful friend who is now completely socialised and absolutely brilliant with people, children and a massive part of our lives. Ok, he has a floppy ear – just adds to his character and he is inseparable from Shadow, his big brother!

If you'd like a laugh – try looking up Mac and Shadow on youtube, the one where Mac swims for the first time is hilarious. He's filled out quite a bit and I don't think I've ever met a dog that likes his creature comforts quite as much – or a ball! He is never happier than snuggling up and putting his head in your lap. Then we bought the caravan, talk about excitement when we go away – the dogs have a ball, just as much as we do!

I just hope anyone considering adopting will get the same reward and love back that we've had!
