True to her Basset Hound nature, Macy is easy going, sweet tempered, affectionate and funny. It’s amazing this girl is so loving and sweet after the rough start she had. This poor girl was kept in a back yard and neglected to the point that neighbors were feeding her through the fence. After escaping the yard numerous times and being picked up by animal control in her neglected state, the Humane Society of Imperial County kept her in their care until TRD could get her into foster care! Macy’s foster family says she’s an absolute sweetheart! She loves a good cuddle, follows her humans around and loves to play. Macy is great with other dogs. She loves the companionship and loves to run and chase her foster sister (a fellow Basset mix). At about 2 years old she’s the perfect age to add to any family. She has medium energy and definitely loves her leashed walks, park play and beach outings. She is still working on her house training but is coming along nicely. Macy came to us extremely underweight but with her ravenous appetite, she’s been enjoying putting on some weight! Bassets are known for their extreme love for food and Macy is no exception; her nose leads her to any tidbit of food her human foster siblings leave laying around! Basset Hounds are naturally vocal and Macy has the perfect basset bark when playing. However, so far her foster family hasn’t heard her howl or bark excessively at all. Macy is still working on her basic commands and is fully crate trained. Macy deserves a life of extreme love and affection after her neglected start! A family with Bassett experience/knowledge would a perfect fit. If you’d like to add Macy to your family, please fill out an application.http://therescueddog.org/2015/dog-adoption-application/
The founders of The Rescued Dog forged our bond during our volunteer work together at a local dog rescue. We recognized in each other a mutual respect for our human friends and the dogs we were helping to rescue. When the time came to start our own rescue, our collective mission was clear: save at-risk dogs from high-kill shelters and place them in loving, forever homes for the benefit of the dogs and humans alike. We believe the best way to end pet overpopulation and animal cruelty is a unified front with local shelters, other rescue groups and the community. While The Rescued Dog is currently a foster-based rescue, our long-term goal is to have a kennel and training facility, which will enable us to increase our number of rescues and take time to train and, if needed, rehabilitate dogs in need. The founders of The Rescued Dog are committed to saving the right dogs for the right people, and offering support and education to ensure a successful forever situation for both our dogs and the humans who adopt them. Thank you for your support!
