Hello there my name is Macciato, but my friends call me Macci – you can too! I’m 9 yrs. old and I weigh 14 lbs. I’m a very happy guy, and according to my foster family I’m very loving, lovable AND smart. My story began when my previous family was moving and no longer had time for me. A few phone calls were made then I was taken to a wonderful foster home. I love it, there are other dogs for me to hang with and loving humans to care for me until NBGR can find my new family.
I’m happy to tell you I’m house trained, leash trained and crate trained. I get along great with other dogs, the cats in my previous home, and I adore humans. One of my favorite things is to cuddle, so please know if you feel the need to lounge on the sofa or snuggle in the big bed you will never be alone because I’ll be right there with you.
So, here I am needing a new family…a very special family who is willing to help me with a couple of things. I have diabetes which requires, checking my blood sugar levels and giving me insulin injections twice a day. I know my routine and am stoic. My blood sugar levels are stable but I will need periodic blood work to make sure they remain that way.
I’m not blind, but my eye sight is cloudy from cataracts, but please do not feel sorry for me, because it does not slow me down. I recognize people, animals and I can maneuver around the furniture inside the house and in the yard. I do have a problem with objects that you can see through like a chain link fences, wire crates etc. but I learn my way around.
It will take me a little while to adjust and familiarize myself with new surroundings, but with a little time I will do fine. I need a family who is willing to keep up with my routine and guide me through this new adventure. I might take a little more of your time, but I’ll reward you with lots and lots of love, and promise you will never watch television alone.
Macci is ready and waiting to meet his forever family. If you are willing to give this darling boy the forever family he deserves and see that his medical needs are met, please complete an adoption application so you don’t waste a minute of joy.
Macci is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, heart worm negative, on heart worm preventative, and micro chipped.
We never place dogs in homes reliant on electric or invisible fencing to contain pets. Fencing of this type may or may not keep a dog in the yard, nor does this type of fencing protect pets from predators, free roaming dogs, or people who may enter the yard. Should there be a power outage, the fence would be rendered useless. If a pet were to panic and run through the barrier and take an electrical jolt from the fence, that pet would not be inclined to return home, and could be lost forever.
Keep in mind that we prefer to place dogs within driving distance of where they are being fostered. If someone from outside the local area is approved for adoption, they must be willing to fly in to get the dog and that can only happen if the dog is stable enough to travel in the cabin with the passenger.
