Charlie (# 588-17)

Charlie is a beautiful chocolate adult 8 year old sharpei that was left homeless when his owners moved and could not take him with them.  He misses them a lot and could use a loving home to foster or make it his forever home.   He’s well behaved, knows some tricks and does well around other dogs.   Needs some leash training, but otherwise he’s ready to go after his neuter this week.    Please think about this adult boy becoming a part of your family. 

Ace (#580-16)

Flying in to us tomorrow (11/19/16) from Alabama, originally from Mississippi, Ace is an 8 month old very sweet shar pei mix that was in very rough shape and is on his way to getting healthy. Everyone that meets him falls in love with him! He has a foster home, but is looking for a forever home!
 
Update (12/10/16): This sweet boy came up to us from Mississippi with the help of Paws & Pilots.  He was probably used as a bait dog in a fighting ring and suffered injuries to his ears (if you won’t fight, you get used to teach other fighting dogs).   Ace is housebroken and loves everyone.   Ace needs a loving home to make up for what he has been through.   
 
Update (3/11/2017):  Ace has been adopted! He'll be heading to his furever home in Wisconsin where he'll get to meet sister Daisy, also a rescue. They drove all night to meet him!  We are so happy for him  Safe travels and have a great life sweet boy.

Harley (#575-16)

Harley (formerly known as Bonsai) came to MACSPRO as a stray from a shelter in New Jersey and is in need of Foster/Forever Home. He is a sweet boy that tolerates other dogs.  He’s a bit larger than most pei and is not leash trained yet.   Not recommended for small children because of his size.  

Update (11/02/2016): Harley had eye surgery and is doing well.   He loves to run in the fenced in yard at the kennel, so he would do best in a home with a fence. Will chase after balls, but has not yet learned to bring them back.  He is still looking for a foster/forever family.

Update (12/10/16): This big boy could use a home with a fenced in yard, where he can run all he wants and amuse himself with toys.He’s a 3 year old big boy that tolerates most other dogs.  He is very lonely at the kennel and could use a foster or furever home for the holidays.

Update (1/25/17): Harley went to a foster home in Annapolis.

Tryke (#571-16)

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 :)   

 

Cooper (#565-16)

Cooper

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.
