Macadamia!

So, if you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, you've no doubt noticed that as of yesterday, there has been a new addition to the household. Meet the extra-adorable MACADAMIA!

I didn't give her that name, she came with it. Though the vet wrote "MACEDONIA" on her paperwork. I am thinking that she'll need to be something a little easier to call soon, probably "Maggie".  She is about two years old, very sweet-tempered, doesn't spook, is good with other dogs and people, is busting with personality AND is housebroken. (She doesn't really come when she's called... but that is mostly because she doesn't really have a name yet!)

The thing is... Macadamia-or-whatever-her-name-is, is a foster dog. The rescue organization I am working with saves dogs like her from being destroyed in high-kill shelters in Georgia, gives them vet treatments and finds them nice adoptive families in NY. That means that she is only with me till she finds her "forever home" somewhere.

If you are in NY and in the market for a pup, take a look at Perfect Pets Rescue.  They are nice folks, and very nice dogs. Maybe you can foster!  Or you can adopt... maybe you'll even be a home for cute little whats-her-face!  :-)

  1. What a SWEET little girl! Might I suggest Macy as a shortened form of Macedonia? She's going to make her forever family very happy. :)

  6. Janni - I still *technically* have a cat, she just lives with my sister in San Francisco... and I think the nickname is grandfathered in. Or something. :-)

  10. She is so sweet. Makes me want to badger the husband for a dog--and good for you, opening up your home to an animal in need.

  12. What a cutie! It is great that you foster. I used to foster for a few groups here in LA but I ended up wanting to keep them all...so now I have five dogs and my husband says no more fostering. Bah!

  13. Wow, so cute! Fostering is such a great thing, it's the reason rescue organizations even work in the first place.

    Macadamia is so cute I'm sure she's going to get snapped up right away!

  15. That is the cutest dog EVER....Gosh!!!! I hate living in a "no pets" rental....evil real estate company...just evil....My neighbor shelters dogs, as well. Right now, she has a small puppy that looks JUST like the Luck Dragon from "Never-ending Story"....these cute dogs needing homes sure makes me want me lease to come to an end!!!!

  16. I just did my fourth foster dog adopt out this year. It really is heartbreaking and satisfying when they go. Good luck with Macy!
