Dog of the Week: Macarena is the Life of the Party


By Agrippina Fadel

To know Macarena is to love her. This brown and black American Staffordshire Terrier mix is the life of every party; she loves to play with her ball and socialize with other dogs and people.

According to Broward County Animal Care, Macarena is two-years-old and weighs 55 pounds. She came to the shelter as a stray in October 2021.

She is a sweet young lady with a great personality, and her beautiful soft eyes and gigantic ears will warm the hearts of any family. Macarena loves to be petted and enjoys attention. She would be a perfect companion for someone with an active lifestyle.

Like many other large dogs at the Broward Animal Care and Adoption Center, Macarena needs a kennel break. The shelter is running over capacity and needs the public to come out and adopt or foster pets.

To adopt Macarena (A2165967), foster, or take a dog out for lunch, email the shelter at To schedule a meet-and-greet appointment and learn more about adoptable pets, email

The Adoption Center at Broward County Animal Care is located at 2400 SW 42 Street, Fort Lauderdale, and is open Tuesday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
