When Mac was asked how long he has had Cal, his new black lab mix from the Yavapai Humane Society, he responded, “I had him for 3 weeks and it has been three of the best weeks I have had in a long time.” Needless to say they are off to a good start!
Mac served in the US Army for eight and half years as a combat engineer. He completed three one-year tours in Iraq where his primary job was to find and clear (a.k.a. detonate or disable) IED’s (commonly known as roadside bombs).
Cal has already made a trip to California while living with Mac. After that he never left Mac’s side. Mac says Cal is very eager to please and picks up on everything he’s taught very quickly. He hopes they will graduate in the fall from Soldier’s Best Friend.
