Update (10/2015): Simba will be sharing great times with his new dad in Alexandria, VA. Congrats, Simba!

Dave (#551-15)

Dave

After months of living on the streets of West Virginia and eluding Animal control, Dave was lured in by a fellow shar-pei owner.  He currently has trust issues from being on his own for so long. We have him in boarding at the vet clinic, where the owner works magic with these types of dogs. Dave is able to stay in the office of the clinic, so that Dave can see people come and go all day and get used to them. He is also attending a weekly obedience class. Dave has already bonded with the staff member that takes him to class, and has made progress with others as well. Dave is now fully vetted and neutered. He is described as a gentleman, and a dream on the leash. He is walked almost daily by different volunteers, so he is used to a lot of people.

Update (10/2015): Dave has moved into his furever home in Salisbury, MD.

Aldo (#548-15)

Aldo
Aldo is a 4-5 year old neutered male.  He was rescued by cruelty investigators who seized him from a neglect situation from Puerto Rico. Despite that, we have a glowing report on his personality...from one of his rescuers...
She says: Aldo is the sweetest and friendliest dog you can find. He was happy to be petted and behaved beautifully.  He is loving and lovable!  
Aldo has been waiting in their shelter for the last 2 months for a forever home, now coming to Maryland to find that special home.  
 
Update (09/2015): Aldo is enjoying his life in his furever home. Everyone and every dog in the neighborhood loves Aldo, including a little girl who comes by just to see Aldo.  Aldo charms all the street walkers who tend to stay for long conversations to talk about Aldo.
 
Update (09/2015): An update from Aldo's family

Aldo is doing very well.  He's obviously very happy here in Annapolis, Maryland.  He loves to go for long walks with Nina in the evening and visit to Chesapeake Bay.  He's always on the alert for a squirrel, fox, or raccoon to chase.

Aldo would probably set the world record for speed eating his breakfast and dinner.  He eats the entire bowl in 15-20 seconds and there's no way to slow him down.

He loves sitting in front of the patio door and enjoying the afternoon son.  He is very calm around other people or other dogs.  In our neighborhood, a very long peninsula, there are always, joggers, walkers, or other people walking their dogs.  Aldo as always courteous enough to acknowledge them, but never pounces, barks, or appears to threaten anyone.  He has already become a favorite in the community.

Fortunately he loves his crate and while we are home he has the run of the house, but normally just relaxes in his crate with the door open and watches what everyone is doing.  He'll come running out, however, if he suspects there's the possibility of a treat.

We love him.

Update (12/2015): Holiday greetings from Aldo--
Please thank everyone in your respective organizations for what you have done for me this past year.  It's been a wild ride from last Christmas to this year's holiday, but I am in my forever home, with people that love me, and I love them.
I could never have imagined when I was back in Puerto Rico (and only able to speak Spanish) that I could be a crime-fighter dog in Annapolis, Maryland (first capitol of the US), learning English, and having hundreds of squirrels outside my front door to entertain me.  I have people that love me, and I love them, and get plenty of long walks and frequent treats.  Although I never told anyone I had several spots where I was in pain, those now have gone away as well.
I have my special spot on the couch where I can sit between my Mom and Pop, and if they drop anything good I am there to scoop it up.

Aldo

Bo (#553-15)

Bo

Bo needs a foster!!  Bo is coming to us from Arkansas and will be beginning his Heartworm treatment up in Maryland.  Could you provide a safe and quite home for him to recover? 

Update (9/2015): Bo is now living in his forever home in New Jersey.

Update (10/2015): MACSPRO wants to thank everyone whose donations helped with the transport of Billie & Bo from Arkansas. Sadly, Billie didn’t make it to Maryland, but her buddy Bo did, and has been adopted to a loving family, in Frenchtown, NJ and is continuing his heartworm treatments.
