The 12 Dogs of Christmas: Meet Marcie, an Active Senior with a Great Smile!

It’s the holidays! The time of year for families to gather together to celebrate traditions, share old memories, and make new ones. This year, as you surround yourself with family and friends, both two-legged and four-legged alike, remember there are millions of dogs in shelters, patiently waiting for a family of their own.

For some, this won’t be their first, second, or even their third Christmas behind bars.

It’s our Christmas wish that every dog in rescue would find a home for the holidays, so we’ve selected 12 special dogs from around the country that have been overlooked time and time again. Some are senior dogs, some have special needs, and some are passed over for reasons we simply can’t understand – but, they all deserve to spend the holidays with a family of their own.

We’re calling this the 12 Dogs of Christmas. The Dogington Post along with our friends at Wellness Natural Pet Food have joined forces to introduce you to 12 needy dogs in hopes that they’ll finally get noticed…and maybe get a home for the holidays!

Meet Marcie!

Marcie wants a best friend, and she’s really hoping that it’ll be you! She would make a fantastic sidekick, be it on a jog, as a copilot, or just lounging around and snuggling while watching TV. Born in 2010, Marcie has the energy of a younger dog, perfectly balanced with the laid-back spirit of a mature gal. She prefers to be the queen of her castle, but don’t worry, she gives more than enough love for a single pup. She’s almost always smiling, showing off an adorably crooked underbite, which undoubtedly adds to her charm. She takes treats gently and sits before getting her meals. She’s also a great leash-walker, and while sometimes she can be a bit vocal when she sees other dogs, she has made great progress since being at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary and continues to impress her caregivers every day. Marcie bonds with people quickly and makes human friends faster than most humans do! She’d truly make an amazing companion for a family looking for an active, mature, loving pup.

The Wellness Foundation was started to make the world a better place for all pets.

A big part of that involves a partnership with Best Friends Animal Society, a leading animal welfare organization dedicated to ending the killing of dogs and cats in America’s shelters.

As the Official Pet Food Partner of Best Friends, Wellness is proud to provide natural pet food for the animals they rescue, so they have access to the healthiest nutrition possible.

We are also committed to helping the pets at Best Friends find forever homes. And when they do, we want their first meal to be from us, so we send their new families home with free Wellness pet food. Because pets deserve nothing less than the most nutrient-dense goodness in every bowl, starting with the first one.

Plus, if you adopt one of our “12 Dogs of Christmas,” they’ll send a PAWsome gift basket filled with Wellness Natural food and treats for your newest furry family member, too!
