Maggie's Story...
Age: 6 years
Gender: Female
Color: Liver & White
Weight: 40 lbs
Variety: Bench
Meet our wonderful Maggie! After living outside for the first six years of her life, shackled with thick and heavy chains around her neck, Maggie is now free from those restraints and is ready to live and enjoy life, making up for lost time! She is a lovable ball of energy. Maggie loves to play, especially with tennis balls. Most of all, she loves to be loved, as every Springer does.

Going for a car ride? Maggie thinks it's great to ride along, look out the windows, and take backseat snoozes. She truly enjoys these and other new experiences. She has put her sad past behind her, delighting in the present and looking forward to a wonderful future with a special Forever Family.

Maggie loves the children in her foster home. She rolls over for belly rubs or gentle snuggles from them. She has the softest fur! Maggie enjoys having the children throw the ball for her to fetch or engaging with them in some activity that involves her chasing her toys. She has a high activity level, so an active household would suit her best. She absolutely loves to run and play. Maggie would make a great running partner! She also has a strong prey drive. Because of this, she should not go to a home with cats or small dogs.

Because she chewed on the chains that tethered her for most of her life, Maggie has lost many teeth. However, the good news is that this situation has not compromised the quality of her life. She is able to eat both dry and wet food and treats without hindrance, she is not in any pain, and she does not have any ongoing dental care issues. And of course she is able to fetch and carry balls and toys with ease and joy!

Maggie is crate trained, and she considers the crate to be her safe zone. She sleeps in it at night and will stay in it while her foster parents are at work. She is housetrained and knows basic commands. Maggie would love to expand her training with her new family. She is very smart and absolutely eager to please, and she is food and treat motivated. Maggie could learn new commands and tricks in a snap!

Maggie is very loyal and enjoys being close to people. She would be happy in a Forever Home with other animals, but she really needs people who will give her the security and love that she craves. Could this gentle little soul be your new family companion? If so, please contact us at the e-mail address below.

Please note that an approved adoption application is the first step in a more thorough interview process that is designed to match each dog to exactly the right family, and that the final decision rests with the dog's case manager.

Please read the Adoption FAQ and get an Adoption Application approved before inquiring about Maggie.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Maggie, a Minneapolis English Springer Spaniel dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a English Springer Spaniel for sale in Minneapolis, or seeking a English Springer Spaniel dog from a breeder in Minneapolis.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Minneapolis already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Minneapolis breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even English Springer Spaniel breeders who help with English Springer Spaniel rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Minneapolis paves the way for another one to be saved.
