Macie - A Petfinder Happy Tail

Adopted from Ironstone Lane Rescue & Stables, TROUTMAN, NC

Macie - posted 09/30/2013

From Julie of Cornelius, NC

I decided to get a puppy in the fall of 2012 after being a cat owner all my adult life, and I had two senior cats at the time. I looked on Petfinder for a few weeks until I found 8-week old Monica (who I renamed Macie after polling friends on Facebook). I wanted a friendly, smart dog who was good with people and would be big enough to protect our home. Macie has been living with us for one year next week, and I have to say that she has brought SO much joy and happiness to my home! She's a sweet, loving, and VERY smart girl! She finished Puppy School at 18 weeks old and is (mostly) well-trained except for chasing the cat! She's a lab/border mix, and she brings me things (puppy toys, socks, empty kleenex boxes)...she'd bring the cat if she could catch her! Macie loves doggy cookies and going to doggy camp on occasion, and to the dog park to play with her doggy friends. After having her in my life and now in my heart, I don't know why I didn't have a dog before now! Petfinder made it easy for me to bring Macie home to be my forever girl!
