Foster Needed for Found Sharpei

MACSPRO is in need of a foster for a sweet baby girl Sharpei/mix a couple found on Friday, June 19th near Aspen Hill, Maryland.

The couple have temporarily named her "Godiva." Godiva was found running along Connecticut Avenue near Aspen Hill on Friday afternoon. She has been with the couple since. Godiva is very, very sweet. The vet at Laytonsville estimated her age to be between 1-2 years. She was found with no collar and no microchip.

Godiva knows how to sit, she does perfectly on a leash, she is clearly house trained. The couple would like to keep her but are unable to due to space and ability--they have another dog and are renting. In addition, they will be out of town after next week and will be unable to keep Godiva with them.

The couple would like to avoid handing Godiva over to the shelter if possible. They have filed a found dog report with the County as well as posted on Craigslist and Facebook. They have also hung signs near where Godiva was found. Hopefully they will have some luck because Godiva is definitely part of someone's family based on her personality and behavior.

We are looking for a foster family for Godiva until her family can be located. Please contact us if you can help!

Meet Bear

Hello! My name is Bear. I’ve had quite the journey during my short life of 3 years. When I was a puppy my name was Cora. Life was pretty rough being in a shelter with no forever family to call mine. I thankfully was rescued and placed in a new home where I was loved and given my new name, Bear! I love it! Unfortunately, bad luck struck again and my owners became ill and could not care for me any longer. So back to the rescue I went. I became sad and withdrawn and felt helpless. I didn’t understand why no one wanted to be my forever family.

A couple weeks later I traveled a long distance to live with someone else. I was scared, but it was better than living in a kennel. I was nervous and unsure, but after a few days I started to feel comfortable and started to trust my foster mom.

I have to say, I really love my foster home and mom. She’s great! She gives me so much love and attention and I’m feeling more like my true self every day. I love belly rubs, treats, and strolls around the neighborhood. I am fond of my roommates, even if they are of the feline persuasion.

My foster mom was even kind enough to get me a dog walker so I can have those strolls I like so much while she is at work. How awesome is that!
I do have some fears that I am working to overcome. I am fearful of most men. I can’t remember why, but they bring back unsafe feelings. I also am not a fan of other dogs. I know, I know. I could have more friends if I liked them, but I just have this huge trust issue when it comes to my K-9 companions. This is embarrassing, but I tend to lunge and bark when I see them. A good offense is a good defense, right? Ok, I know, maybe not in this situation. I’ve had so many bad experiences that it’s hard to change the reaction. But don’t worry, I am working on it. Both my foster mom and pet sitter are helping me to get used to seeing other dogs and to calm down in those situations. It will take some time, but they seem to have faith in me. They think I have a heart of gold.

I am a true love bug with my trusted friends. I give kisses and hugs and wag my tail proudly. I adore belly rubs. They are the best! If you are looking for a loving, loyal, sweet friend to add to your family I could be your gal. Contact the rescue for more information. I’d love to meet you!

 

Calendar Submissions are Now Open

Submissions for the 2016 MACSPRO calendar are now open.

This year we have 4 unique ways to get your adorable Peibies, even if they were not adopted from MACSPRO, in our calendar!

Monthly Photo Contest

From now until June 5th we will be accepting submissions via [email protected] for the Monthly Photo Contest.  It is absolutely FREE to submit a photo of your pei for the monthly photo contest but submissions are limited to one photo per dog.  After collecting the submissions, we will be holding a vote on our website June 7th - 13th.  The top 12 photos will be used for the main Monthly photos.

This year you may also sponsor an individual date or an individual month.  All sponsorships must be submitted by June 15th.

Day Sponsorships

Day sponsorships are a $2 donation for text only or a $5 donation for text and a picture. This is the perfect way to celebrate a birthday, gotcha-day or memorialize your beloved Pei. Before donating, please email [email protected] to see if the date is available and to get a preview of any photo sponsorships.

Month Sponsorships

For a donation of $50, you can sponsor any month of the calendar.  This gives you the entire region below the final week of the month to add photos of your pei, leave a special message, or place an advertisement for your business.  Before donating make sure to email [email protected] to make sure that this is still an available option.

Rainbow Bridge

Any Shar-Pei that have been added to the website as a Paid Memorial since the creation of the last calendar are automatically added to the Rainbow Bridge Memorial Page of the calendar.  If you would like to have your Shar-Pei memorialized on this page, be sure to have your Shar-Pei added to our In Loving Memory page by June 15th.
