From the Foster:

Through the course of my veterinary care at Secondhand Hounds, it was discovered that I had many mammary masses that needed to be surgically removed. Thankfully they were benign, but future adopters should continue to monitor for any further masses that may develop on my abdomen. It is recommended to have any masses that develop evaluated by my adopter's veterinarian. 

Macy is a sweet old girl who loves nothing more than than hanging out with her people. Her favorite activities are sleeping in her calming bed, eating her meals and lounging next to me on the couch.

Macy has some anxiety and prefers to be near her people. If I'm gone she will look for me and howl. She would do best in a home where someone is there most of the time.

Macy is still fairly active and enjoys shorted walks. She also loved exploring her yard, but she does have some mobility limitations. She can do small flights of stairs, but will slip at times so I carry/ lift her whenever possible. I also block off any larger flights of stairs to avoid any accidents. She would do better in a house w/o stairs or one where she is carried up and down.

She is mostly deaf and has cataracts but sees fairly well.  

She has had mammary tumor removal, they were all benign but should be monitored for new growths.
