Mac (チャンプ, Champ) is a jock dog villager in the Animal Crossing series, a character only available in Animal Crossing: City Folk and now Animal Crossing: New Leaf . His name, Mac, could mean anything, from dog macs (used for when it is raining) to a popular name for dogs, though it is likely that it is derived from the bulldog mascot of the Mack Truck Company in reference to Mac's bulldog-like appearance.
Mac is a brown dog with white paws and a cream-colored muzzle, possibly resembling a Bernese mountain dog, a pug, or a bulldog. His initial clothing is the Red Aloha Shirt. At first glance, he can be easily mistaken for a cranky villager.
Below is a brief description of the jock personality. For more information, click here.
Mac has a jock personality, which means he will have a keen interest in sports and fitness, making him appear competitive and in some cases rude when talking to other villagers, usually criticizing their fitness. He will appear slow-witted and absent-minded when talking about deep, meaningful things. He will get along well with peppy villagers, but gets confused by the choice of lifestyle followed by lazy villagers, who appear opposite to his personality. He may offend and upset snooty and cranky villagers.
He has a beach and a calm island feel towards his house. My Place is playing on a cassette player to fit the calm and relaxed feel to it. But the feel of his house does not fit his outgoing personality. He also has a Barbel Steed.
Mac's French name "Brutus" was likely inspired by the infamous urban legend, of a glitch dog villager from the Gamecube version named Brutus who talks and sends letters in binary, and freezes your game when you enter his house.
