About Macy (HOSPICE)

  • Status: Available for Adoption (adoption info)
  • Adoption Fee: 300.00
  • Species: Dog
  • General Color: Black with Tan, Yellow or Fawn
  • Current Age: 10 Years 7 Months (best estimate)
MACY is an almost 9 year old, medium sized, black and tan beauty, who was surrendered to a local shelter as part of a cruelty/neglect case along with her breeding partner. Macy was severely underweight, totally unsocialized, and unfamiliar with everything in her surroundings.

TEMPERAMENT


*** Macy is currently in boarding due to a lack of available foster homes!  Macy is looking for an experienced German Shepherd foster to stay with so we can get to know her better before finding her a great forever home.  
Please send an email to mogsfostermgr@gmail.com if you can help!

OTHER ANIMALS

Macy struggles to feel safe around other dogs, and has a strong small prey drive. She should be the ONLY pet in the home.

CHILDREN

Because of her history of severe abuse and neglect, Macy still has some unexpected reactivity, and would need to be in a home with no children. NO exceptions.

MEDICAL

Macy has been diagnosed with arthritis, and will require ongoing vet care for this condition.

This sweet girl does have some rough edges, and REQUIRES a strong, authoritative leader, who has experience in handling GSD's. Are you the one who can help this girl continue her journey of healing?

 

Macy's ADOPTION FEE:   $300
This fee covers only part of what we spend to vet, board and rehab the dogs we save. On average we spend over $450 on each dog. We made a decision to keep our adoption fee at the 2005 level even though vet prices have doubled and tripled since then. We are constantly fundraising to cover the deficit. At minimum, your adoption fee includes the dog's spay/neuter, heartworm test, heartworm treatment if needed, rabies shot, distemper/parvo shot, bordatella shot, deworming, monthly heartworm and flea preventives, and microchip. In many cases it also includes surgery and various types of vet treatment for standard issues such as hot spots, ear infections and so on.

Not Good with Cats, Is Not Good with Kids

PLEASE READ THIS:

  1. We're picky about our adopters. 
  2. Are you sure you're up to having a GSD?  They're not for everyone.  They take a lot of time, effort, training.  They shed year round.  They're big.  They scare lots of people.  They "mouth" and herd.  They're usually strong-willed and stubborn.  You have to have references and a home visit.  If you're not willing or able to deal with any of this, please don't waste your time or ours applying.  
  3. Will the dog be an inside family pet? We do not adopt to outdoor-only homes. All dogs must be indoor dogs.
  4. Do you leave your dog outdoors when you're not home?   We do not adopt to homes that leave their animals outside when they're gone.  You must put your dogs indoors when you're gone.  A 3 yr old adopted MOGS dog died when the owners went to run errands, left her outdoors, the gate was somehow opened, and she was hit by a car.  Tragic and 100% preventable. Even privacy fences get broken into.  Gates are opened.  Thieves steal dogs. Never leave your dog outdoors when you're not home!!
  5. What's your plan for unexpected events and major changes?  New baby? Divorce?  Moving?   How you will provide for your dog if your family breaks up? 
  6. Will you make a lifetime commitment?  It's your responsibility to keep your dog safe, loved and cared for FOR LIFE.
  7.  Do you understand we expect you to keep that lifetime commitment?  It's YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to stick by your family member -- no matter what.
  8. Are you unable or unwilling to make a lifetime commitment? Do not apply.
