Macey – ‘Our special little lady’

  • Lurcher
  • Female
  • Can live with children, 10 plus
  • Gloucestershire
  • Needs to be an only dog
  • Not cat trainable

Macey is a very funny young lurcher with a truly gentle character!  She loves to play but also adores a good cuddle with the people she loves.

Sadly, Macey recently developed meningitis, a life-threatening disease which made her seriously ill. We are pleased to say she has now made a good recovery and is back to her normal playful self.

There is a likelihood that Macey may have other episodes of this disease, which can be life limiting. She is therefore on long term medication to keep her fit and well for as long as possible. Unfortunately, we don’t know how long this will be for, but all Macey knows is that she’s feeling full of energy again and wants to play!

Macey needs a very special owner that can help her with her daily medications and check-up appointments at the vets, where she makes friends with everyone she meets. Macey finds her trips to the vet quite exciting – she thinks everyone is there just to see her, so she’s quite happy to go as often as needed! Macey loves to interact with people and enjoys learning new tricks and joining in with anything. She is a very quick learner and will be a really rewarding dog to live with.

Macey hasn’t had a lot of experience with dogs, so although she likes them she does get a bit worried by them. Therefore, she would be best in a home where she is the only dog. She needs an owner who has the time and the patience to help her out with whilst she is still learning.

Macey is currently in a lovely foster home, she is housetrained and loves her home comforts – she can’t wait to find her very own special owner, ideally with a snuggly sofa!! If you think you could be Macey’s personal human, please contact us to find out more
