ADOPTED ON 12-20-14 – Macy was adopted from the pens, along with her sister, ironically, a rescue volunteer passed by the adoptive home (previously unaware of the adoptive location) and saw the two puppies playing beside a busy highway!!! She immediately pulled over, to find that nobody was outside supervising the pups! After a short conversation, Macy was surrendered to the volunteer on the spot. Macy is a female Chihuahua mix who is approximately 6lbs and 6 months old. She is spayed and up to date on all vaccinations and heartworm negative. Macy was picked up by animal control with her brother and sister on Sept 10, 2014. Macy has been in foster care down south since 10/18/14, she is scheduled to arrive in Connecticut on 11/15/14.
Macy is a bit reserved and the exact opposite of her brother Freddie. She is shy, cautious and submissive upon initially greeting, but once she has had a few minutes she will readily curl up in your lap. She is good with cats, and is currently in a foster home with a mother cat and two half grown kittens, she does not seem to notice they are even there. Macy has only been around a few other dogs besides her siblings and has done very well. She has been around a ten year old child and has been on supervised leash walks with children a few years younger and did very well. She was nervous in the car at first, but settled down once she was able to sit in someone’s lap. She does okay in a crate, and “tries to hold it “until she is let out to potty. Macy is still working on perfecting her housetraining skills. Macy does excellent on leash.
Macy has a very low activity level and her ideal new home should be a quiet environment. She is a bit shy at first and approaches new experiences and people with caution, but it does not take her long at all to quickly become a snuggle buddy. Macy would do well in a home with cats and has done well with other dogs. It would be wonderful if she could be placed with her brother Freddie as she enjoys playing with him so much, but this is not a deal breaker. Another great thing about Macy is she will not eat you out of house and home. She is quite the little lady and only eats a little bit at a time. If her new home were to include children it is recommended that they be over the age of 10, as Macy is very tiny and fine boned. A small child may not understand how fragile she is and could unintentionally injure her when attempting to hold her. She would make a wonderful companion for and elderly person and would be perfectly content to curl up in their lap while they read the newspaper or while they watched afternoon soaps. Please fill out an application if you are interested in adopting Macy.

- Always teach children how to approach and touch dogs
- Always supervise any interactions between dogs and young children to prevent any biting or ear or tail pulling on the part of either party.
- Teach your child never to approach any dog while he’s eating or sleeping or to try to take the dog’s food away. No dog, no matter how friendly, should ever be left unsupervised with a child.
- Children need to be taught how to how to approach and touch dogs, and always supervise any interactions between dogs and young children.
- No dog should ever be left unsupervised with a child because often-young children don’t understand that a cute little dog, or any dog, might not want “love and kisses.”
- Never let young children pick up a puppy or small dog. Instead, make them sit on the floor with the dog in their lap. Pay attention to the dog’s body language, and put him safely in his crate if he appears to be unhappy or uncomfortable with the child’s attention.
- Always teach children how to approach and touch dogs, and always supervise any interactions between dogs.

- Be prepared dogs will protect themselves
- Most important, it is your responsibility to make sure that your children and the dog are supervised at all times and safe. You cannot leave it up to the dog, the dog is an animal and will behave like an animal. They rely on us to guide and protect them, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
- THIS IS YOUR JOB, NOT THE DOG
