Last Sunday we showed video of some very lucky Scotties enjoying a birthday party. Three of the dogs were rescues from Scottish Terrier Rescue of the Southeast (formerly known as Scottish Terrier Rescue of the Carolinas) so we headed over to their site to find some feel-good rescue tales and, sure enough, we hit paydirt with the story of 10-year-old Mac:
Mac had belonged to someone who surely must have loved him. But health problems led his owner to put him in an outdoor pen, with no care or human interaction other than a neighbor’s daily feeding. He was filthy, overweight and suffering from skin issues and an ear infection. Mercifully, he found his way into Rescue. By the time I knew of him, Mac’s medical conditions had been treated, he had been neutered, and he was getting along well with the other dogs in his foster-family’s home.
When I met Mac, he kissed my nose. I was instantly charmed. Little did I know then that he is not a kisser!
If you can’t get enough of rescue Scotties, here’s video showing more of the dogs rescued by this group:
