Pet of the week: Macguyver is a quick learner



This week volunteers at Adopt A Dog have selected Macguyver as the program’s adoptable pet of the week. He’s a beautiful Red Heeler mix, about a year old and weighing 40 pounds. He was a stray with no manners and was quite a handful, but after just one day, the boy has learned to walk like a super-savvy dog, with a soft leash, and right by your side. In fact, he thinks his name is really “Good Boooooyyy!”

Macguyver

Treats definitely help the learning, but he’s happy to oblige with praise. He makes very good eye contact and is always looking to see what you’d like him to do next. Macguyver is one of those smart dogs that would love a job, and would probably excel at agility training, or maybe be a running buddy, or work dog. He goes on long walks easily, and shows a playful side with other dogs, but is fine on his own, too.

Macguyver is current on shots, microchipped and neutered. The adoption fee for Macguyver is $205. The fee to adopt is charged to recoup standard veterinary expenses. Since many of our dogs are in foster, please call ahead to meet Macguyver in Odell at the Hukari Animal Shelter, 3910 Heron Drive, or call for more information at 541-354-1083. Adoption hours are Wednesday, 5-7 p.m. and Saturday, 9-11 a.m. You can fill out an application online at our website, hoodriveradoptadog.org, or download and scan and email to us at adoptadog@gorge.net, or fax it in to 1-877-833-7166. We offer 24PetWatch microchips, which include free registration into the 24PetWatch pet recovery service. For more information visit www.24petwatch.com or call 1-866-597-2424.
