Victor (#561-16)


Victor and Victoria will be coming to MACSPRO from Puerto Rico. Victor and Victoria came from a terrible situation in which the owners moved out of their home and left their two Shar-Peis shut inside with no food, no one looking after them, no way to get out, no nothing.

Victor and Victoria require serious medical attention as they were left abandoned in a closed house without food or water. Volunteers had to work hard to rescue Victor and Victoria from the abandoned house as there was a lot of rubble and stuff barricading the dogs.

We really need fosters once Victor and Victoria arrive to us--please let us know if you can help!

Update (01/2016): Here is a wonderful update on how Victor and Victoria are coming along! And again, we'll need fosters when they arrive in the USA from Puerto Rico.

Update (4/2016): Victor is coming to Maryland this weekend! We heard from Victor's foster mom that he is very, very spoiled and loves to get kissed on the cheek. He also loves to ride around in the car--he'll go anywhere! He is active and playful. However, he should be fed alone, because he really, really loves to eat and will try mightily to get into everyone else's dishes. He doesn't bite or growl, but he tries to push them so they understand to move....He's a strong boy, who may not always know his own strength when he's playing with other dogs. His favorite thing (beside getting kisses) is curling up in a really comfy bed. He really needs a foster home!

Update (06/2016): Victor, now called Charlie, was adopted and went to his furever home with Vanessa & Oliver in Luray VA.

Chloe (#547-15)

Chloe is a sweet 6 yr old girl who came to us from Upstate NY and is waiting for her forever home. She would do best as the only dog in the household. 
Update 2/26/16: Chloe is a very happy girl, always glad to meet you & get 
petted.   She gets so excited she does a little happy dance for you,  and she loves 
Update 6/24/16: Chloe is on her way back to Pittsburgh to her furever home!! Congratulations, Chloe, and her new family!! 

Dexter (#569-16)


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.

Update (06/2016): Dexter went to a foster home last week, where he has won the heart of his foster dad & other pups in the house. His foster dad has fallen for Dexter and he will be staying with his foster now furever family.

Wilbur (#486-13)

Wilbur 1

Wilbur is a sweet MACSPRO boy who is coming back to us. Wilbur is looking for his new furever home. 

Wilbur absolutely loves spending time with people! He may need lots of time and a slow introduction when dealing with other dogs. His eyes are not the best but he can see when someone is ready to love him.

Cruz (#557-15)


Cruz, previously Thirteen, lived with 2 adults and has been around children ages 6 and up. He plays and jumps up a little rough for toddlers.  He has lived with cats and chases them but was never aggressive or harmful towards them. His behavior is unknown towards dogs. He has lived indoors only and his activity level is medium. Cruz's previous owner describes him as playful, excitable, affectionate, mellow and friendly.

He is trained to eat on command and won't touch his food until his owner says so. He allowed his owner to touch his food bowl and take treats and toys away from his mouth. He takes showers once a week and likes to be brushed. He barks when an unfamiliar person approaches the house or family member.

Cruz is trained to use the bathroom outside 30 minutes after eating. He knows come, sit, give paw, and eat (In English and Chinese). He is trained to lift all paws when he comes inside to wipe off his paws. Cruz is not crate trained but is well behaved when left home alone. He likes to follow owner around the house but doesn't seek much attention. Cruz eats dry food at 5pm once a day.

Update (2/26/16): Cruz is now being fostered, but is still looking for his forever home!

Update (03/2016): Cruz went home with Allison & Cindy to Pearl River NY to live happily in his furever home!  A big thanks to Cori for fostering him.


Update (3/25/2017):

Cruz' family and MACSPRO can't believe it's been an entire year since Laser (formally know as Cruz) has joined his fur-ever home!  Laser could not be more excited that the snow is melting and his squirrel friends are resurfacing.  He still enjoys his walks around the neighborhood exploring with Pete and the his family.  Laser even joins his mom Allison at work every Friday for what all the co-workers call "Laser Fridays".

The family was kind enough to give a generous donation on the MACSPRO website to help further our admirable mission of helping such a loving breed find happy, healthy homes.  The family looks forward to the day they can expand their "pack" and find the right second Pei to join them.

Thank you as always!
Allison, Pete and Laser
