Mackie

I'm looking to find a safe and supportive home for my two sweet dogs. Mackie is about 3 and Ollie will be 1 in December. They're both great with other dogs, cats and kids. They know basic commands and do really well with training when the training is consistent, which is where our family falls short. We would like them to stay together but will separate them if necessary. Mackie is completely house broken and will bark at the door if she needs to go out. I found Mackie about 2 1/2 years ago a mile or so from a popular hunting area and I do believe that she was being trained as a hunting dog and spent most of her time outside. We fell in love with her and since I was only working part time at that point we decided to let her stay with us. She hunts birds, squirrels and bunnies. All Mackie wants to do is be outside, be with humans and sprint. She is an escape artist and that is the reason that we are trying to find these two a new home. She digs under fences and runs out the front door and through the invisible fence. She always comes back but we live near a few busy roads and I'm terrified that she'll get hit by a car (again) or worse, cause an accident. She would do great in a home with lots of land where she could be outside most of the time. She is super submissive and very gentle. She is high energy but is also happy to cuddle on the couch. I think they would both make great companions for a family or single person as long as someone works from home, has a flexible schedule or is retired so that their training can be reinforced throughout the day. Training them is actually super fun when you have the time!
