About Maci

Miniature Pinscher / Italian Greyhound
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Female

Maci Fostered in Duluth, GA and will only be adopted within an hour of Duluth, GA. 3.5 year old Min Pin/Italian Greyhound Mix female 12.5 lbs. Fully vetted MPMR requires all adopters to have their pets up-to-date on vaccinations, to be spayed or neutered, and on heartworm prevention. Maci, nicknamed Moose, piggy, and little miss pumpkin butt, is quite the character. She is an independent little girl who isn't much on cuddling unless it's time to sleep. She loves spending time outdoors to the point we prefer for her to have a home with a fenced yard. she will also be a great walking or hiking buddy if desired as she does not easily tire. She loves everyone: adults, kiddos, dogs, and cats! A confident dog friend will help her learn the ropes faster and adjust more quickly. She has shown some signs of gravitating towards men but will make friends with anyone who has treats. When outside, Maci seems to think she is part pig and will sit in and roll in mud, so be prepared for queen of digging! This is how she's earned two of her nicknames. Her face and back end turn orange from GA clay. Maci is house trained in her foster home, though as with any dog, we expect a few accidents as she adjusts to a new environment. Thankfully, she has good house manners. She has only two faults, and one of those won't be an issue for many. Maci is not at all a fan of car rides, which is why we've placed the distance limitation on adoption. She is not suitable for someone who travels often. The other is any door going outside, so she will need to be held, put behind a baby gate, or crated if people are coming and going since she is a runner and is not easily caught. She also moves faster than someone can blink due to the Italian Greyhound in her. Of note medically speaking is that Maci has been tentatively diagnosed with irritable bowel disorder. As a small rescue, we cannot afford the endoscopic procedure so have had to try treatment with steroids after ruling out other conditions. She is currently on 0.5 MG of Budesonide a day. Without medication, Maci has shown she would not eat much unless food was of a mashed potato consistency and would often vomit undigested food 30 minutes to 10 hours after eating. It is suspected dry food still bothers her GI tract, so her kibble is soaked for about half an hour. She eats Purina beef and lamb with a topper of Grandma Lucy's freeze dried food for added flavor and to help her maintain a healthy weight. This food combination is being used after Maci refused to eat several higher end brands, many of which were limited ingredient (wanted to make sure she didn't have food intolerances). We know with certainty, she will not eat anything with fish or any type of fish oil in it. At this point, we have chosen not to rock the boat since she is now doing very well from a health standpoint.
