10 June 2014: Maggie was abandoned on the side of the road in North Carolina with her toys and a bowl of water where she stayed for 2 days until someone rescued her. She is a little over a year old and is the perfect size at 45 lbs but feels even lighter when she curls up on your lap. She tends to be more of the quiet couch potato, but she LOVES to play. She hasn't quite gotten the gist of playing fetch and loves her toys. She will bring you a toy and when you try to take it from her to play catch you will end up playing tug of war, of course if you don't try to take it from her she will try putting it on your lap until you do. She is very food motivated, allowing her to learn her commands quickly with treats. She knows sit, stay, lay down, up, & come. She thinks shes a lap dog, loves to watch TV, give lots of kisses, and she loves to burrow behind you or under pillows or blankets. Maggie Mae is a follower and a snuggler. She wants nothing more than to be sleeping on or next to you and will follow you everywhere. Maggie Mae would love a large fenced in back yard to run free in. Her energy comes in spurts so a really intense game of catch tends to wear her out quickly. She wants to be your constant companion, your reason to have a smile on your face, your best friend, and she deserves to be someones world. For this reason, she would do best in a very active home with no other pets, no small children, and experience with rescue dogs.
