SHE NEEDS TO BE THE ONLY ANIMAL IN THE HOME MACY originally came to us Monday 10/23/17 with her boyfriend Rex from LCDAS. She and her friend Rex were street strays, or a more accurate way of saying they were dumped by some moron who chose not to care for them or retrieve them after being taken in by animal control. She was already chipped and the owner chose not to come get either of them. Macy unfortunately WAS HW POS BUT NOW SHE HAS BEEN TREATED AND IS HEARTWORM FREE.
Macy is a 9+/- year old female black and tan spayed female GSD with a black saddle and a beautiful face. She is a talker but calmed down quickly when reunited with her boyfriend or spoken to softly. She responds well to direction. I have spent time with her and she has been in training by Monica and Adam at My Buddies and is doing extremely well. I saw her today 5/16 and she was a perfect girl! She weighs about 75 pounds and she is a large girl. She does like to run, and our original foster jogged with her almost 1/2 a mile and she appeared to love it. She was adopted to a great family but after their move Macy did not take well to the other family dogs and was returned. It appears (from what we know now) that she does have a high prey drive and yet is super sweet with people. She is currently being hosed at My Buddies Kennel in Port Charlotte and we want to get her out of there (even if into a foster) as soon as possible. We will only adopt her to a single dog household, preferably someone with no real dog activity, so to keep her interactions to a minimum. Because of her new issues we have housed her at My Buddies kennel in Port Charlotte rather than in a foster at least for the next few weeks, until we reassess her temperament. At times, once dogs have their heartworm cured their personality does change and that is what we are watching. This is housebroken and somewhat trained dog who needs love and affection to make her a great dog.
We have reassessed her 5/14 and it seems she can deal with other dogs far better than first thought. She is in class with the trainers there and has responded very well. She should be placed with a family who will care for her and limit her dog-dog interactions.
