Snorkels is a bit shy, but a super sweet boy. He does not know how to walk on a leash, but is learning! He is good with cats, dogs and loves people! He is also not food reactive. Please let us know if you can foster Snorkles!
Update 04/30/17 Snorkles found his forever home in Georgetown where he resides with Abbie & Adi, his pei brother Henry and cat Scarlett who he still likes to chase!
Harley (formerly known as Bonsai) came to MACSPRO as a stray from a shelter in New Jersey and is in need of Foster/Forever Home. He is a sweet boy that tolerates other dogs. He’s a bit larger than most pei and is not leash trained yet. Not recommended for small children because of his size.
Update (11/02/2016): Harley had eye surgery and is doing well. He loves to run in the fenced in yard at the kennel, so he would do best in a home with a fence. Will chase after balls, but has not yet learned to bring them back. He is still looking for a foster/forever family.
Update (12/10/16): This big boy could use a home with a fenced in yard, where he can run all he wants and amuse himself with toys.He’s a 3 year old big boy that tolerates most other dogs. He is very lonely at the kennel and could use a foster or furever home for the holidays.
Update (1/25/17): Harley went to a foster home in Annapolis.
Ella has been in & out of a few foster homes and is looking for a furever home to settle down in. She’s very scared right now and needs an experienced Shar Pei owner to help her relax and trust people again. She is 6 yrs old & spayed, UTD on all shots.
Update 11/02/2016: Ella is warming up to everyone and is a real nice little girl. She is a perfect apartment sized dog! She loves playing with toys! She is still looking for her foster/forever family.
Update (12/10/16): Still waiting at the kennel for a foster or forever home to play with her and give her some treats & love. Shy girl who takes a little bit to warm up to strangers. She’s a smaller apartment size pei who loves her toys.
Update (02/02/17): Sweet little Ella went to her furever home in Pennsylvania, getting spoiled with Ken & grand-daughter Carly.
Senior Shar-Pei Tryke (Formerly known as Ike) was found wandering the streets of one of NJ's toughest inner cities. He is maybe 8 - 10 years old, has been severely neglected and is extremely thin. He may be partially blind BUT he loved all the handling during his evaluation and wanted more! Although he did react to other dogs during the evaluation, we can’t be sure it was the loud barking at the shelter, the unfamiliar smells and/or overall fear and uncertainty of this environment. He had no blanket or bed to comfort him and sat on the cold hard concrete floor. Laurie, who gave him his freedom ride, said he is a sweet boy. Laurie helped MACSPRO bring him to safety in Newton, NJ where he is getting a thorough exam, fluids, good food and necessary vaccines.
Update (09/29/2016): The surgery was successful and his foster mom has been taking great care of him & getting him to physical therapy. He would do better in a home without stairs. Please think about giving this sweet old boy a loving home in his twilight years.
Update (1/17/2017): Tryke made it to Florida and will spend his remaining senior years in the warm weather with other senior pei to play with.
Update (1/28/2017): Tryke is doing great!!! He's a total sweetie who follows people around until he's totally exhausted and then naps for a while. We have him on several natural anti-inflammatories because he's getting so much more exercise here than he did previously. He still doesn't walk well but he no longer limps :)
Cooper was turned into a shelter in Southern VA when his owner passed away and left him and 3 other dogs. Cooper has some skin issues and could use a foster family to give him the love and care his needs after his ordeal.
Update (05/2016): Cooper's skin issues are doing better, and he is now in a foster home. He is still in need of a forever home, however!
Update (06/2016): Cooper is back at the kennel, things at the foster home did not work out and his is still looking for a furever home.
Update (07/05/2016): Cooper is now in a foster home but still looking for his furever home!
Update (12/10/16): Cooper is still looking for his forever home...is it with you?
Update (12/19/16): Cooper went to his furever home on Christmas Eve and will reside in Olney, MD with a great family who adores him!
Adonis is coming from Puerto Rico tomorrow (11/18/16)! We have a foster home
for him, but he needs a forever home.
Update (12/6/16): Adonis was adopted on Saturday! He met his new parents on Saturday and just loved them! He will be a spoiled pei boy with Crystal & Brian in their new home in Philadelphia!
Victor and Victoria will be coming to MACSPRO from Puerto Rico. Victor and Victoria came from a terrible situation in which the owners moved out of their home and left their two Shar-Peis shut inside with no food, no one looking after them, no way to get out, no nothing.
Victor and Victoria require serious medical attention as they were left abandoned in a closed house without food or water. Volunteers had to work hard to rescue Victor and Victoria from the abandoned house as there was a lot of rubble and stuff barricading the dogs.
We really need fosters once Victor and Victoria arrive to us--please let us know if you can help!
Update (01/2016): Here is a wonderful update on how Victor and Victoria are coming along! And again, we'll need fosters when they arrive in the USA from Puerto Rico.
Update (4/7/2016): The vet removed a mass on her paw and sent it out for biopsy. It shows that she has a grade 1 cancer, that is probably the best kind to get if you have to have cancer. It is not aggressive and her prognosis is excellent. However, because the mass was situated directly on her paw, where there isn't much extra skin to play with, she ended up with a nasty wound that got infected. She has been staying at the vet's from Monday through Friday where they do a daily routine to remove the patch, which stimulates the skin underneath to grow back. Once she is through this process, they will go back in and remove the so-called dirty borders that were left from the original removal of the mass. Despite all this, she is a happy camper and loves seeing people and getting attention. She is going to make someone a wonderful companion....
Update (06/2016): Victoria is still in Puerto Rico, we would like to place her in a foster home when she gets here.
Update (07/18/16): Victoria is super mellow. Gets along with others, even alpha females. Likes to keep mostly to herself in front of the fan. Loves to get hugged and kissed and squished, mushed up. She is a ham, very easy to dress up with hats and scarves; loves to pose; easy going. She will be coming to Maryland very soon and we really need a foster home for her. We do not want to put her in the boarding kennel.
Update (09/29/2016): Victoria has a foster waiting for her in Annapolis as soon as she gets here. We’re waiting for the cooler weather to fly her up here.
Update (10/20/2016): Victoria is now living with a foster in Maryland!
Update (11/02/2016): Victoria is a very well mannered little girl, very calm and very obedient. Just wants to be a lap dog and loves being around people, getting petted & hugs!
Update (11/16/16): Victoria has found her forever home with Holly in Laurel, MD. Congratulations, all!
