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!

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.
Meet Pei Pei , a three year old chocolate female. She is extremely affectionate and did well on all of her evaluations except interacting with other dogs in the shelter environment
She exhibited no resource guarding, was playful and affectionate with handler, walks well on leash and accepted restraint.
Update (12/2015): Pei Pei found her furever home with new dad, Charles in Severn, MD. It was love at first sight for these two! She is adapting well to her new home; plenty of room to run in her huge back yard and a back seat to ride in, her favorite things, besides kisses!!
Valentino is a lovable 4 year old 50 lb Shar Pei who comes from Falls Church, Va. His favorite activity is snuggling up on a soft blanket and sleeping all day. He loves affection from his owners. He has previously lived in a loving home with adults, grandparents, and children who lived with him from 3-6 and 7-10 years old. He takes a little time to warm up to new people, but once he does he will show them a lot of affection. He prefers to be the only pet- he is more cautious towards other animals, but will also warm up to them when introduced slowly.
