MacKenzie the Pocket Collie Puppy ~ Adopted

MacKenzie the Pocket Collie Puppy ~ Adopted

MacKenzie is a smooth coat Collie puppy, born around the beginning of the year. He came to us via Dee Sullins, the director of Hale County Humane Society of Alabama. MacKenzie had a special place in Dee’s heart and he really wanted to save this little ones life ~ the adoption rate is so low in rural areas it is heart breaking! So Dee contacted us and, after he told us about MacKenzie, we quickly said yes!


Kenzie is a very easy-going affectionate puppy. We call him a “pocket” collie because he is so small, only about 25 pound. All the puppies in my foster home just adore him and he is very patient with them, especially when you consider he is just a puppy himself. He is very people oriented and will always come a-running to get a belly rub.

Cats are just fine as far as he is concerned; he doesn’t bat an eye at them. What a sweetheart!

MacKenzie has an extensive photo album posted on our Face Book page. Enjoy!

September 28 Update:

The more time I spend with MacKenzie, the more taken by him I become. This is a delightful puppy. He really loves attention but he isn’t in your face about it. He’ll go lie down somewhere quietly and watch you. If you look at him, he’ll raise his head hopefully, looking for a sign that you want him to come over. I mean, what puppy have you ever met that does that? Usually they’re all, “Look at me! Look at me!” He isn’t sad; he’s just easy. When I look at is face I think that there might be a little Border Collie in him, moderating the extreme muzzle that you usually see in Collies. Whatever it is, he really is a well put together puppy, both in looks and temperament. He is one of those rare puppies that I would not hesitate to send home with a toddler. Now, that’s saying something!

October 16 Update:

MacKenzie has been adopted! Elissa had recently lost her 14-year-old dachshund and she had a big hole to fill so she came to meet Jitterbug the Dachshundl. She was all over Elissa and her sister Donna, sitting in their lap, bringing them her toys, dragging in the dog bed from the other room,…. Oh yeah, she was on her best behavior. It made me so happy to see how well she and Elissa fit! As we were filling out the adoption paperwork, Elissa told me she wanted to get a second dog at some point. I asked her what size of dog she was looking for because I wanted to find one for her. She said Cinder, at 28 pounds, was too big. I went to get MacKenzie to show her what an 18 pound dog looked like. When he walked in the room, her heart melted. I mean, instantly! Before we knew it, she had adopted them both. I’m so happy. Jitterbug is an energetic bouncy girl, MacKenzie is a laid back boy. I think they will make a wonderful pair for Elissa!

October 19th Update:

Jitterbug and MacKenzie are doing great! We have been taking walks every night and they are both doing very well on
their leashes. They both love playing with their new toys and are having a great time playing ball in the back yard.

We are the three musketeers. If I leave a room, MacKenzie and Jitterbug are right on my heels following. They are adorable. I’m sending a picture to you from my gmail account.
