Congratulations to Mack whose cute face is featured on the box of the Purina Alpo Variety Snacks treat box!

Four-year-old Mack was once a stray dog, but thanks to his owner and trainer Mary Mackenzie of E. Carondelet, IL, he is now a beloved pet, as well as an agility competitor and a professional model who has been featured in advertisements.

“Mack was born on a nearby farm in a shed. He was alone, running loose among the goats and horses when I offered to give him a home,” Mary said. “We began training and it was obvious to me that I had a very smart dog with lots of food drive… Life with Mack around is always an adventure and there is never a dull moment at our house!”

Mack also recently earned the highest honor in AKC Agility – the Master Agility Championship (MACH)!
