From the point of view of one of her pitbulls, Mac, the founder of Mac’s Mission said that she – and her four other rescue dogs – could not let the puppy go because they had all fallen in love with him.

She also said that with the puppy’s unique feature, he will be the new face of the organization, “to help save special needs dogs with our typical flair of positive awesome and love.”

Mac’s Mission’s founder also announced that the Unicorn puppy will be trained as a therapy dog to “help soooo many special needs kids with visits to hospitals and schools.”
