Hampton (#592-17)

Hampton is a 3 yr old male, 52 pounds, and growing (up from 46 when taken off the streets of Puerto Rico).  Friendly with other dogs once he gets to know them.  Good with children and adults. His right front leg has a curve to it.     X-rays have the vet saying it was either a birth defect, or an untreated fracture as a puppy.  He does not appear to be in pain and does not let that stop him from his walks.

Petey (#544-15)

Petey

Petey is a 3 year old male looking for a home with a big fenced in yard to run in or a very active family looking for someone to run with. Petey, is very playful, adores everyone, adults and children.  He loves kids, very affectionate, and in good health. He's a loving, playing, eating, sleeping handful and needs an experienced big dog person.

Jersey (#593-17)

Jersey is a very sweet 5 yr old girl who was surrendered by her family who could no longer afford here.  She’s been spayed and is awaiting entropin surgery once her skin issues are cleaned up.   Her foster mom says she loves to cuddle and be close to her human.   She’s is in need of a foster home and a furever home to be a spoiled little princess. 

Doobu (#582-17)

Doobu is a 3 year old female in need of a foster or forever home.  Doobu is very outgoing, playful, loves toys, and responds to commands.  She has a larger than life personality and will want to be near her caregiver.  She walks ok on leash and is very chilled out at home when with her family. Doobu has excellent manners at dinner and when taking treats.  Doobu is in need of ACL corrective surgery so we would need her new family's cooperation in pre and post vet instructions, which may or may not include taking her to therapy temporally and limiting her movement until she heals I'm sure with the help of medication.  

If you are not able to foster or adopt Doobu, our little comic relief then please consider DONATING any amount you choose towards her ACL repair medical care. No amount is ever too small. MACSPRO greatly appreciates any donation, no matter the amount. To Donate towards Doobu's needed pending ACL surgery please Click Here and specify Doobu in comments

A SPECIAL THANK YOU!!!!!!  MACSPRO would like to thank Deb Kachik of Deb Kachik Photography for volunteering to take some of the beautiful photo's you see of Doobu.  Thank you so much Deb, you really help bring out all of Doobu's wonderful sharpei wrinkles.

Update (8/03/17) – Doobu’s knee is completely healed from her surgery and she is feeling great.   She made the long trip to her new home in Hampstead, NC will she will have a great life with her adopted Dad, Burt. 

Update (7/10/17): Pending Adoption!!!  Doobu is recovering with one of our volunteers until the bone heals (est early September) and she can go to her forever home in North Carolina.  It was suggested by the Vet that the recovery and physical therapy be performed by someone that Doobu knows so she would feel more secure and have a smoother recovery.

Update (7/8/17): Doobu received her TTA surgery at VT Vet School and I tell you they did a fantastic job on our little girl. 

Update (3/16/17): Doobu is back with MACSPRO. She has a torn ACL that needs to be corrected so she can be pain free.

Update (3/10/17): Doobu went to her furever home today where she will definitely be spoiled by her new best friend Eli in Upper Marlboro, MD.

Update (3/2/17): We think Sori will be better off adopted separately. Doobu picks on her, takes her toys away and pushes her out of the way when she wants, just like an older sister. Sori seems to lack self-confidence because of this behavior.   Both girls are starving for attention and love, and we feel she would thrive on her own.

Update (3/2/17): Doobu has had entropian surgery and it went well, she can see much better now. Doobu is now in need of a new foster home as she is now in the boarding kennel, and she can be adopted separately from Sori. 

Update (1/25/17): Doobu & Sori are in a foster home in Columbia, but are still looking for their forever home where they can be together.

Chica (#542-15)

Chica

Chica has been returned to MACSPRO due to no fault of her own.  There were family barriers that kept them from keeping this sweet girl.  Chica is a sweet loving girl that loves to play with other dogs & kids.  She will make a great family dog.   Currently in foster but needs a forever home. 

Update (7/30/170  Chica went to her furever home in Columbia, MD where she will get to play with new furry brothers Bear & Linus and lots of love and kisses from her new mom Vicki.

Update (7/2017): Chica returned to MACSPRO to find her forever home.

Oscar (#568-17)

Oscar was found as a stray with 2 ruptured eardrums.  MACSPRO made all attempts to clear up the infection that came back as the worst kind of infection.  After several months of antibiotic and cleaning treatments the infection came back full force.  MACSPRO's only alternative was to remove Oscar's eardrums to give him a life without horrific pain and discomfort leaving him deaf.  When Oscar was released from his 3 weeks recovery at the vet hospital he went crazy with excitement when he say his foster Dad and MACSPRO volunteer that visited Oscar often during his stay.  He's still such a smart little guy dragging his foster Dad to the truck when he realized he was going to his foster home.  Once home he quickly reunited with his furry pals, foster Mom, and took a victory lap around both floors of the house.  Everywhere Oscar goes he is the hit of the event, eager to meet and greet everyone, as well as his furry friends he gets to meet.  Oscar seems to no longer be in any pain, and his lack of hearing does not seem to faze him in any way.  Surprisingly Oscar still sit's, give's paw, and lay's down upon command.  His foster family says 'This dog is a keeper!  Smart, and gets along wonderfully with the other dogs'.  Oscar still has a lot of puppy in him and can jump twice his height like a mountain goat.  Just an awesome boy!  Oscar does great with children of all ages.

If you are not able to adopt Oscar but what to contribute to his medical care please click Here and put Oscar's name in the comments.

 

A SPECIAL THANK YOU!!!!!!  MACSPRO would like to thank Oscar's foster Dad Larry for taking such wonderful care of him, transporting Oscar for his weekly ear treatments, and transport to surgery, consistent visits during his 3 week recovery at the vet, and all the adoption events to get this little guy exposure to meet his future forever family.  Deb Kachik of Deb Kachik Photography for volunteering to take some of the beautiful photo's you see of Oscar.  Thank you so much Deb, you really help bring out Oscar's adorable Pug eye's and handsome stature.

Update (3/17): Oscar was receiving weekly treatments at the vet to get both ears massive ear infection under control.  These treatment failed and Oscar's eardrums had to be removed.  Even when Oscar was in a massive pain he was still a fantastic playful loving little boy!  Let's give it up for Oscar... gimme an Ooooooooo..... gimme a S....gimme a C....gimme an A.... gimme an R.......... Gooooooooo OSCAR!!!!!!!!!!!   We're with ya buddy.  Keep up the great work!!  Hang tight and keep the faith.

Sori (#583-17)

Sori is 3 years old and in need of a foster or forever home. She walks well on leash and has a great recall for off leash. She would make a great hiking, running, or couch companion. She responds very well to commands and is very chilled out. Sori may be a little shy outside the home at times but has come out of her shell and continues to amaze with her happy disposition. She has excellent manners at dinner and when taking treats. FYI - Sori and Doobu (582-17) are sisters.
