Crimson's foster family adopted him. Congrats on your new home, Crimson!
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 :)
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!
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.
Update (07/05/2016): Cooper is now in a foster home but still looking for his furever home!
Update (12/10/16): Cooper is still looking for his forever home...is it with you?
Update (12/19/16): Cooper went to his furever home on Christmas Eve and will reside in Olney, MD with a great family who adores him!
Franklin is a male Shar-Pei mix with good manners and knows some commands.
Update (02/2016): Franklin waiting to play. He's put on a few pounds & is filling out nicely. He's a great dog, got the best of shar-pei & retriever traits. Please consider him if you're looking for an active companion.
Update (2/2016): Franklin went to foster with Terry & his new BFF Sadie in Virginia.
Update (3/2016): Franklin was given an excellent life while living with his Foster Dad. Unfortunately, he crossed over the Rainbow Bridge after a car accident. RIP Franklin, you were loved.
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.
