Macy, boxer and terrier mix
Macy is a female boxer and terrier mix being kept at Red Fern Animal Rescue.
Macy gets along well with other dogs, but Red Fern Animal Rescue recommends she be placed in a home without cats or small children. No need to worry: She is already house-trained, spayed and vaccinated.
Here's what Macy's friends at Red Fern Animal Rescue think of her:
She is a huge love-bug! Macy was born with an underdeveloped eye and because of this, she sometimes gets easily startled when people come up behind her. It takes her a little bit of time to warm up to people, but after she does, she absolutely loves you!
