Macy has been adopted! 05-31-2014
Petite and affectionate, young Macy has won hearts among the Coastal volunteers and the medical staff who have helped her with a recent ear infection. Everyone says the same thing, “This is a really sweet dog.”
In her foster home, she has given her trust and loyalty easily, making an easy adaptation to home living. Even though she had not previously been taught to “Come” or “Sit”, she is making up for lost time in learning these commands. Most of all, she wants to please and is a quick learner.
She has sleek, short fur and a trim physique to go with her impressive athletic abilities of catching balls with grace and agility and then joyfully prancing back to the thrower for more fun. She has a “soft mouth” whether she's ever-so-gently taking a treat from fingers or letting someone take a cherished ball from her mouth for another pitch.
For a petite dog, she is surprisingly strong and fast. She needs lots of exercise and lots of TLC to thrive.
Macy has a sensitive nature and benefits from reassurance and praise that she is doing the right thing. She is a bit uneasy about riding in the car and cries or whimpers initially in new surroundings. But her trust wins out, and she not only comes to be petted but even permits and enjoys a loose hug, with her head down to nuzzle closer. She likes for her family to be with her and is very lonely when they are not.
Macy walks well on leash even if other dogs are walking on the sidewalk with their owners, she doesn't bark at them, even though they are only a few feet away.
The minimum adoption donation for adults is $375 and the adoption donation for puppies is $500. This amount only partially covers the cost of veterinary care, boarding fees, and other miscellaneous expenses involved in the temporary care and adoption of our dogs and is tax deductible when permitted by law. The adoption donation provides that all dogs will be spayed or neutered, receive current vaccinations, and are microchipped. If not, arrangements will be made on an individual basis ( i.e., puppies who will need to be altered by 6 mos old). Special consideration may be given to those willing to adopt older dogs or dogs with physical problems.
