A handsome dog, who has a unique (lion-like!) appearance, has been dealt a bad hand in life. The six-year-old golden retriever mix, dubbed “L’il Mackie,” is believed to have been abandoned by his former family who left him alone in the yard when they moved away.
Lil Mackin was taken to the Long Beach Animal Services facility in California on January 8 and in the time that has passed, Mackin has struggled with kennel conditions and he is now in danger of losing his life. Lil Mackie’s advocate explains:
This big fluffy guy was a champ when we took him to the play yard but he is not showing well in his kennel and has gotten bad notes from the shelter staff for being possibly barrier reactive. He’s an inquisitive and social guy who loves to be pet and doted on.
The length of time that Lil Mackin has been locked away, coupled with his poor showing at the facility, puts his life in jeopardy. Please help this abandoned dog find a new family by taking a moment to network his adoption information.
