Description: 
See Macy's Homepage Please contact Tonya (GulfCoastDachshundRescue@yahoo.com) for more information about this pet. Macy is a tiny girl with a BIG love of life. She is never still for more than a few seconds, unless she's sleeping. She's full of attitude and spunk (in a good way!) She is all about anticipating whatever comes next and she's ready for it! Macy has identical notches in each ear. This serves as a 'marker' for many puppy-millers. Even at her young age, it's apparent that she has had at least one litter of puppies. She is very small, at about 10 pounds, and despite a good diet and appetite, she is very svelte. Medically, she is in tip-top shape; it's her activity level that keeps her so slim. Macy is up for anything any time. She needs an active family who enjoys getting out and exploring the world. She gets along ok with her foster brothers and sisters, but I think she'd prefer to be an only dog. She has an alpha personality and knows how to use it! She adores my always-on-the-move 2 year old son, so children would be great for her. As with any dog, though, constant adult supervision is a must. She is crate trained, but is too busy to be bothered with house-breaking, so that will have to be worked on in her new home. Crating her and letting her out on a schedule seems to be very helpful in getting her house-broken.Macy is NOT a dog who would adjust to an apartment life-style. She needs a yard and a purpose in life. If you've ever considered fly-ball or agility, Macy is your girl!Macy's adoption fee is 240.00 and not only covers her spay, vaccinations, heart-worm test, and other medical bills, but every single penny that is left over goes directly to our constantly-growing vet bills that are incurred by our older, sick, and less-adoptable dogs. Without the help of the younger, healthy dogs' adoption fees, we would not be able to provide heart-worm treatment for the other 90% of dogs that come in with heart-worm. We would not be able to provide much-needed dentals for seniors who have been neglected. Medications for dogs with skin issues, diabetes, back injuries, and a whole host of other ailments would be out of our reach without our adoption fees.
