We found a little old Jack Russell that someone dumped back in 2007. At that time, our vet estimated he was about 10-12 years old. (Some of you may remember the infamous Mac.)
A year after we found him, my grandparents had to move in with us because my grandpa was diagnosed with lung cancer and was on hospice. They brought their dog, and Mac and Tina didn't get along, so Mac went to live across the street with my mom. He's been with her for the past 2.5 years.
Mac has kidney disease and arthritis. He now can't hear, has cataracts, and is peeing and pooping all over my mom's apartment. In addition, he is bullying my mom's cats all of a sudden. She is stressed out.
He still enjoys food and likes to go outside to potty.
She's considering if it might be time to let Mac go. What do you think?
