Hello everyone. I’m Maggie, a very sweet and smart 10 year old lady weighing about 45 lbs. You can call me Mags for short. I was found as a stray in Chilliwack when I was a puppy so my lineage is unknown. My owner thinks I am a mix of Ridgeback, Whippet and possibly German Shepherd mix, I was adopted from the SPCA in 2006 when I was a little under a year old.
I have a low to moderate energy level and fairly minimal exercise needs. I love to run (although I get tired pretty quickly) but I also love to chill and lounge around just as much (who doesn’t?!). I am great and very gentle with kids, cats and other dogs. I can be a little standoffish around new people, especially men, but that’s only until I get to know them. After that my normal sweet self comes back.
I’ve been a regular visitor to the dog park since I was adopted and have never acted aggressively towards any other creature - not even squirrels! I hardly ever bark, only when a strange dog is walking past the house. One of my favorite activities is going for a walk, usually without the need for a leash, and exploring my surroundings. I don’t really do the whole “fetch” thing but I love running alongside dogs that do. Honestly, I am just happy being with my family and doing whatever they’re doing.
For the same reason, I really don’t like being left on my own. I have some separation anxiety that shows up when my owners leave. Because of this, I’d love to be with a family who will rarely leave me alone. Another dog might help me feel more at ease when our humans are away. Whether it is going for walks, puttering around in the garden, or just chilling on the coach, I am the perfect companion.
Because of my age, I’ve had some trouble in my left knee joint. Usually after I’ve had a long walk or run, it can flare up and cause me some discomfort. I also have some food sensitivity to beef which tends to make me itchy. I am currently fed a salmon-based diet which keeps my food sensitivity in check.
I am a very smart girl who knows my commands and wants nothing more than to please my person. I am spayed, tattooed, and all my medical records can be found at the Bakersview Animal Hospital in Abbotsford. My adoption fee is $100.

About Home at Last Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Home at Last Dog Rescue is a small group of volunteer animal lovers whose goal is to help homeless, neglected and abused dogs find caring and responsible homes.

Our volunteers are dedicated individuals who have joined together to form a new rescue group. We are commited to helping dogs in need and to provide them a second chance at a happy life.

Our dogs are not kept in a shelter. We depend on the support of caring and compassionate people to care for our dogs until we can find them permanent, loving homes. We provide vet care and rehabilitation to all of our dogs.

Our Adoption Process...

If you are interested in adopting a rescue dog, the first step is to search through the list of our dogs currently available for adoption. All dogs remain on Adoptapet and our website (homeatlastdogrescuebc.ca) until an adoption is finalized so all dogs listed may be applied for.

Our job is to find the right home for each of our dogs. We will contact you to arrange for a home check at your convenience. Unfortunately, many of our applications are rejected, not necessarily because there is anything wrong with the home, but because it is not the right match for the dog. Following a successful home visit, we will arrange for you to meet the dog, usually in their foster home. At that time, you will decide if you would like to adopt the dog.

Before an adoption can be finalized, we will ask you to sign an adoption contract. Depending on the dog’s personality you may be asked to visit the dog once or twice before taking him or her home. This will be most common with shy, timid dogs. Outgoing and confident dogs can most often be taken home after the first meeting. Documentation for each dog will be provided upon adoption. Adopters must be ready to pick up their adopted dog home as soon as they have been approved and have agreed to adopt the dog. Home At Last Dog Rescue BC cannot hold dogs for people who have applied but are not yet ready to accept the dog into their home.

Please note: an adoption fee is required for successful applications. The adoption fee is non-refundable, even if the dog is subsequently returned. Home At Last Dog Rescue BC will always take back one of our dogs for any reason, and without question. Adoption fees for our dogs vary. The price varies based on the age and medical needs of the dog being adopted; costs are judged on a case by case basis.
