We pulled Macy from Fulton County Animal Control on November 4th 2015. She has a wonderful spirit despite her medical conditions. It was determined that she was a high heartworm positive, what we thought was a mass in her stomach, and her bloodwork came back a little abnormal. She had an ultrasound done and it was determined that her liver was enlarged likely due to the damage done by heartworms.
Macy finished her heartworm treatment in May 2016. She recovered well but it has been determined that surgery to correct her luxating patellas would be too risky for her due to the severity of her heartworms and the extensive and irreversible damage to her heart and liver. Her legs do not seem to cause her any pain and instead just leave with an endearing slightly uncoordinated gait.
Macy is the perfect companion! She gets the occasional zoomies to welcome you home after a long work day and enjoys a nice walk but what she really loves are snuggles. She prefers not to let you out of her sight but has not shown any signs of separation anxiety and has wonderful house manners! Macy is treat motivated and a quick learner, this old girl likes to learn new tricks. She loves everyone she meets and has done fine with dogs of all sizes but like most pups, does best with a slow introduction. She has also shown interest in various neighborhood cats but quickly understands who is really in charge (it’s always the cat).
Despite her medical conditions, she is a sweet, happy girl. She is in a loving foster home that is surrounding her with love, compassion, and comfort. She gets to spend her days in a big king-sized bed, wrapped in cozy blankets but she’d happily downgrade to a smaller bed in return for a forever home!
