16 to the Rescue: Meet Macie
In this week’s 16 To The Rescue, we meet a senior basset hound who may be old and lumpy, but this adorable girl is so easy to love.
HONESDALE, Pa. — This is Macie’s second time living at the Cartoon Animal Shelter near Honesdale. She first arrived as a stray a few years ago and was adopted, but her owner recently passed away. Now the 12-year-old basset hound is back, and he’s breaking the hearts of rescuers.
“She just has a great personality. She’s outgoing for a dog her age. She loves meeting new people. Give her toys, she’ll play a little. She loves to walk; she just walks like it’s her work. It’s always something good to feel there. She’s great on the leash, great in the car,” said Marie Sinisgalli, Drawing Animal Shelter.
The perfect match for Macie would be someone who is home often because she enjoys being around people. She would prefer to be the only pet in the house and she gets along well with children.
“I don’t know if she can jump on a couch, but she would make a great couch mate if she could get on that. She’s just an easy-going girl. We have her back in the office with us, and she’s just fun to have,” Sinisgalli said.
Yes, she could use a stepladder to help her when she’s trying to be a couch potato, but she’s an old lady, after all.
“She just has a lot of age-related bumps and bumps, and that’s why you see she looks like she’s out of shape, but she’s actually in good shape. She’s got a great stamina. She just had two cysts removed.” Sinisgalli explained.
There were no issues with the cysts and the vet says Macie is very healthy. But rescuers want to make sure her new owners will love her for the old lady she is.
“I just want to make sure people are going to be patient with her because she doesn’t always walk fast, but we just want to make sure people let her age accordingly and happily so if anyone can offer her that, come on and grab her, she’s waiting here,” Sinisgalli said.
