The pets of Macon County Animal Control ~Decatur, Il Photographer~

Our top priority is to get the senior dogs and long stay dogs adopted.

     Long stay is defined as a stay of 6 months or more.  This is heartbreaking that they live in shelters for even this long.  Please take a look, and if you like an animal you see here, visit the shelter, give them 10 minutes of your time, and you’ll love them!  If any dog has more of a description more than another, it’s just because this was my first go at this, and I wasn’t as well prepared as I thought!  Better details to come!

So, let’s jump in and meet the pups!

First up is Brewster.  This poor pup’s owner passed away, and he was surrendered to the shelter soon afterwards, imagine how scared he must have been.  He had a tough time adjusting at first, but has settled in nicely.  He’s a perfect size for someone needing a companion, not too big, not too small.  He’s 7 years old, and has only been at the shelter for around 3 weeks, so let’s get him a home before the holidays!

Atticus is a 7 year old as well that came to the shelter as a stray.  He loves to play with whoever is giving him attention.  When he first came to the shelter his nails were so overgrown, walking was difficult for the poor guy.  He’s also a great size, and would love to have a forever home as soon as possible!  Check out the adorable bow on Atticus!  It’s hard to see, but he was very festive!

Sandra (fondly called Sandy Dee) is a sweet old soul, who just has a gentle aura about her.  She’s 7 as well, and loooooves her treats.  She’s considered a long term stay since she’s been at the shelter for 6 months.  Just look at those gentle eyes, and give her a chance, you won’t regret it!  Update:  looks like Sandra might be going home as a foster!  Keep your fingers crossed!

Nicole was one of my favorites, and if you’ve liked the Facebook pages of Macon County Animal Control and the Foundation, you’ve seen her face up there.  She’s been at the shelter for 17 months, which is a quarter of her short life.   Too long!  She’s potty trained, and the biggest sweetheart, and in desperate need of a home for her to cuddle up in.  There is absolutely nothing wrong with her, she just needs a home that will play with her and love her.

I’ll finish out the first post with my other favorite, Sophia.  This gorgeous girl is around 4 years old, and completely deaf.  She loves human companionship, and just wanted to lean on Beth with Miti Fine Dog Training and steal her warmth.  Despite the nice December day, this girl shivered so much we threw the blanket over her.  Since she’s deaf, it was hard to get her attention, so she’s not looking in her pictures, but you can see how kind she is, and how much she deserves a loving home.
