Beloved Pet Of Cancer Patient Needs Home

 |  Jun 11th 2009  |   10 Contributions

This is a very sad story, a woman battling cancer has had to give up her beloved pet. To be fighting this horrible disease and then to have to give up her dog is just heartbreaking.

I'm sure if she knew someone out there is willing to give Macey a new home it would be one less burden. If you can help the time is now, otherwise it may be too late. Macey is being held at the shelter in Lawrenceville, GA.

This sweet girl was brought in to the shelter in hopes of finding her a new home. However, due to the sheer volume of dogs that are being turned over "Macey" was slated to be euthanized.

"Macey's" owner is a 42 year old mother of four who is battling cancer and returning to the hospital immediately. Her husband is staying at her bedside for 18 hours a day. Sadly, he does not have time to care for the dogs and his family.

"Macey" is a pleasure to be around, is house broken, friendly, knows "sit" and her name. She is a lab mix with a very lady like face. Perhaps she has some Doberman Pinscher in her. Both are wonderful family dogs. We are unable to confirm her spay surgery but will certainly research this further. She will need to be confirmed spayed prior to her leaving the shelter, and will be up to date on her vaccinations. We believe she is 5 years old. "Macey's" owner was very difficult to understand through her crying and sobbing, so not all of the information may be accurate. The one thing I am sure of is that she loves people and is well mannered.

If you have any room in your home and heart for this girl please contact us. "Macey" was concerned yet loving and trusting throughout her unsettling experience being in the euthanasia room. Yes, she was that close.
