MacGregor is a very lucky fellow saved from death row with the help of several Texas Scottie Rescue Fund coordinators and volunteers. He was rescued from the Dallas area and transported to West Texas Scottie Rescue in Midland. This charming and loving very predominantly Scottie mix is a truly great dog. While his rescue journey has a very happy ending, his time with us made us very sadly aware of the plight of many Scottie mixes. MacGregor was boarded for four months before a foster home came forward for him. During his boarding time, he absolutely stole the hearts of the kennel staff and WTSR volunteers who walked him daily. This wonderful boy has all the great dog qualities wrapped into one package – he’s a perfect gentleman, has a heart as big as Texas, and is the personification of canine love and loyalty. His only fault was his longish legs that resulted from his being a mix.
WTSR had MacGregor treated for skin infections, a badly infected area on his tail, and infected eyes and ears. Once he was neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and tested negative for heartworms and tick fever, the long wait for his forever home began. After four months, MacGregor’s fortunes changed dramatically when a wonderful foster home came forward for him. MacGregor loved his life with Gary and Lynda and his three new doggie friends in Lubbock. He especially loved having a huge backyard to run and play in after his long term kennel stay. Just as he worked his way into the hearts of all of us who were involved in his rescue, he worked his way into the hearts of his wonderful foster family. He recently became an official member of their clan! This gentle boy is now safe and secure and deeply loved. Lynda and Gary truly appreciate the qualities that make him the very special dog that he is.
MacGregor is remembered with great affection by the many friends he made on his rescue journey. WTSR and Texas Scottie Rescue can never thank Lynda and Gary enough for giving him the loving forever home for which he waited so long. MacGregor was originally posted on TSRF’s website Oct. 15, 2012.
