Meet Clara, a stray from Maryland. We do not know much about her yet, but she is calm, quiet, and aloof. She enjoys getting attention, although she acts like she is not used to it, and treats. She has been walked near other dogs in the kennel and doesn’t seem to mind them. She will need to be spayed, and we would love to find a foster home for her after she arrives next week.
Update (7/27/16): Clara is now being fostered!
Update (8/12/16): Clara has been adopted by her foster family!
Crimson's foster family adopted him. Congrats on your new home, Crimson!
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 :)
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.
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!
Peanut is a cute boy from New York. Peanut is a approximately 1-1/2 yrs old and underweight due to life as a stray. Peanut is thin and scared, but with time he should calm down. Peanut ate gently and softly out of a volunteer's hand and allowed gentle pets. Peanut could really use a foster or furever home to help him gain some weight and overcome his fears
Update (9/10/16): Very exciting news...Peanut has gone to his forever home!! Congratulations, sweet boy!
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!
