Three Legs and One Big Heart – Mack is Ready for His Forever Home

Three Legs and One Big Heart – Mack is Ready for His Forever Home

BEST FRIENDS ANIMAL Society helps pair dogs that are about to be euthanized with foster parents that can care for them until they're adopted. Before Mack, a black lab mix with big floppy ears, found his way to Best Friends, he had sustained a major leg injury and his front right leg had to be amputated.

But Mack is a survivor, and eased right into life with three legs! He lives in a home with two other dogs where he's learned new skills. Besides enjoying lots of pets and cuddles, Mack loves to travel and rides calmly in a crate on road trips.

Mack has a sweet temperament and charms everyone he meets. Give him a happy home by adopting him through Best Friends today!

Having worked solo for several years, Clare in 2021 was awarded Houston Business Journal’s No. 2 Luxury Realtor® in Houston. Leigh, who has been working in marketing for the past decade, has always shared a passion for real estate and watched Clare successfully balance family and career.

Wiley's 'Judith and Holofernes'

THE ENERGY IN the foyer of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston’s Caroline Wiess Law Building is quite lively, thanks to the installation of two provocative paintings, painted 400 years apart — one by Artemisia Gentileschi, an Italian 17th-century female artist, the other by Kehinde Wiley, a contemporary, Nigerian-born queer Black artist. Each depicts the grisly climax in the Old Testament Book of Judith, in which the widow Judith decapitates the Assyrian general Holofernes, thus saving her besieged Jewish city of Betulia.
