BROOD welcomes new members who share our passion for rescuing homeless. Please join us as we continue our ongoing rescue work!

Welcome to BROOD
Since 1996, BROOD has cared for and adopted almost 3,200 dogs with injured bodies, damaged spirits, or broken hearts. Some have been abused or neglected, others left behind when owners moved or passed away. All needed our help. Our dogs will always come first. We are unsparing in our care for our droopy eared, short legged canine friends, helping them find the forever homes they deserve.
A new year and a new decade are just around the corner and I’m hoping the future holds a new home and family for me!!! I’m Macie, an 8 year old Basset-Beagle mix, or Bagel to keep it simple. I found my way to a BROOD foster home after my owner gave me up to save me from a bad environment in their home. A new year means a fresh start and I’m putting the past behind me and looking forward to a happy future.
You couldn’t ask for a calmer, easier going dog than me. I am house trained and can use a doggie door. I go great on car rides and walk correctly on a leash. I hardly ever bark, so I’d be great for an apartment, townhome or condo. I do like to bark and do a spinning dance when my foster mom comes home to get her attention for some cuddles and belly rubs. I get along with other dogs but would do just fine as an only dog. I have a bit of an independent streak and would rather do my own thing than to join in with doggie playtime. I’d rather play on my own with toys, especially tennis balls and stuffed animals. I can be a little cautious when first meeting new people. And I don’t care for being picked up, I love to snuggle on the couch with my people but on my terms. I would be better in a home with older children that would understand my need for personal space. I like to smell and sniff outside (make sure to watch my video!!) but don’t need a lot of space so a home with no fence would be suit me just fine.
