|Macy is Home at Last!|
Macy now lives the life that every dog dreams of, with a retired, doting dad, a bossy little canine "sister" (Annie) to patrol and play with, and a huge fenced in yard with sand pit just for dog digging pleasure.
Here are some happy dog pictures of Macy in her forever home in Maine.

"It's been almost a year since Macy came home for good, and I thought you might like to know she's doing great. We've made so much progress that I find it difficult to remember the dog who made me wonder if I was going to be able to get her inside. New situations still make her wary, she's still frightened of gunshots and fireworks, and I wouldn't trust her to make good decisions in a situation where she was frightened, but other than that (and those things could be said about a good many dogs) she's pretty normal. Well, as normal as a herder with a wry sense of humor can be.

On the whole, she's incredibly polite, well behaved, and usually comes when called (Is there a squirrel involved? Am I in trouble? Then she's not so quick to respond.)
She's made friends with the fire/rescue workers on our walks, has a boyfriend in Zane, another border collie on our walk route, and is simply a joy to have here.
Yes, she's a successful rescue. Thank you all."
HUGE thank you to Susan and her family for fostering and caring for MACY for PAWS for years while she waited for her forever home. Thank you all for supporting our rescue efforts to help dogs like Macy. It takes a village to save each dog that comes through our doors.
Macy is just one of the many long term residents we care for here at PAWS. Even in perfect health, caring for a foster dog for two years is VERY expensive - and as you all know, it is a rarity for us to ever get a dog that is in perfect health!
