Dexter is a 4 year old neutered male that has been bounced around to 3 different homes since last summer and really needs a safe home to go to when he comes to MACSPRO. He is a happy, goofy guy, typical Shar Pei that needs time to trust again. An experienced shar pei person would be the best fit for him.
If you could help this guy out and keep him out of the kennel, please submit an on-line foster or adoption application. Please, fosters in the DC/MD/VA area only.
Wilbur is a sweet MACSPRO boy who is coming back to us. Wilbur is looking for his new furever home.
Wilbur absolutely loves spending time with people! He may need lots of time and a slow introduction when dealing with other dogs. His eyes are not the best but he can see when someone is ready to love him.
Cruz, previously Thirteen, lived with 2 adults and has been around children ages 6 and up. He plays and jumps up a little rough for toddlers. He has lived with cats and chases them but was never aggressive or harmful towards them. His behavior is unknown towards dogs. He has lived indoors only and his activity level is medium. Cruz's previous owner describes him as playful, excitable, affectionate, mellow and friendly.
He is trained to eat on command and won't touch his food until his owner says so. He allowed his owner to touch his food bowl and take treats and toys away from his mouth. He takes showers once a week and likes to be brushed. He barks when an unfamiliar person approaches the house or family member.
Cruz is trained to use the bathroom outside 30 minutes after eating. He knows come, sit, give paw, and eat (In English and Chinese). He is trained to lift all paws when he comes inside to wipe off his paws. Cruz is not crate trained but is well behaved when left home alone. He likes to follow owner around the house but doesn't seek much attention. Cruz eats dry food at 5pm once a day.
Update (2/26/16): Cruz is now being fostered, but is still looking for his forever home!
Update (03/2016): Cruz went home with Allison & Cindy to Pearl River NY to live happily in his furever home! A big thanks to Cori for fostering him.

China is our new girl coming from New York City. MACSPRO was able to save her just before she was about to be put down. China is about 1 year old and 32 lbs. She gets along with olderchildren but needs time to warm up to strangers. China knows "sit" and is crate trained. China needs to be an only dog. Please consider giving China a furever home!
Update (01/2016): China is ready for the snow storm!
Update (02/2016): China’s foster mom has made it official and she is no longer available. She’s adjusted well to the new family home with Anna, Kato & Puma in Columbia, MD
Jia is coming to MACSPRO this Saturday. Jia is a 3 yr old apricot dilute girl that was surrendered by her family when she did not get along with the other dog in the household.
Update (02/2016): Jia went to her forever home back in PA with Chris & Lindsay. Based on her pictures, she looks like she’s settling in very well and getting spoiled!
Valentino is a lovable 4 year old 50 lb Shar Pei who comes from Falls Church, Va. His favorite activity is snuggling up on a soft blanket and sleeping all day. He loves affection from his owners. He has previously lived in a loving home with adults, grandparents, and children who lived with him from 3-6 and 7-10 years old. He takes a little time to warm up to new people, but once he does he will show them a lot of affection. He prefers to be the only pet- he is more cautious towards other animals, but will also warm up to them when introduced slowly.
