Meet Maggie! Maggie is approximately 4 years old and was rescued along with about a dozen other hounds. She is a hound mix with a very sweet disposition, weighing in at a lean 50 pounds. Maggie has been given a clean bill of health from the vet, who stated that she is a great weight, healthy teeth, strong heart and a healthy looking coat!

Maggie does extremely well with other dogs, as well as adults and children. She uses her signature nose both inside and outside of the house to assist her in locating any small animals. For this reason we suggest that she goes to a home without any cats or small animals (rabbits, etc.) After she "hunts" down the source of the scent she will proceed to let loose her adorable hound howl until the source is removed from the area.
Maggie is fully house trained and knows to do her business outside, however we have noticed that she does like to urinate frequently and has the odd accident on the mat at the back door if we don't let her out in time. We are working on basic obedience with her as she does not seem to understand any commands yet. We think it would be a great idea for her forever family to take her into obedience training to further her training as well as provide a great bonding experience. She is a very smart dog and caught on to most of the household rules within the first day. We are working on several commands with her, she doesn't seem too keen to want to sit, however she is getting very good with "off", "come" and "leave it".
Maggie enjoys going into her crate at night with a few treats when it's time for her humans to go to bed and she doesn't even make a peep!! She also uses her crate during the day when we are out and about. Sometimes during the day she will even go into her crate to just have a little quiet lie down.
Maggie enjoys lots of backyard playing time with the two resident dogs and will outrun them every time! She is definitely a high energy dog and will require plenty of exercise to keep her from developing any destructive tendencies. Maggie really enjoys spending her time outside she would do great to have a large fully fenced backyard at her forever home. Maggie does surprisingly well on her walks, once she gets going she walks at a very fast trot and would probably enjoy a jogging companion (although I have not tried this yet). She will occasionally stop dead in her tracks when she finds a particularly good scent, but usually only spends a few seconds with it. In saying that, Maggie has a VERY high prey drive, if any small animals are seen on walks she will lunge and pull to get to where they are. She needs a completely escape proof harness or gentle leader, as she has managed to get out of one once while trying to chase a squirrel. With lots of consistent training, I believe she could be a great walker.
Maggie is happy to follow the other dogs around the house or hang out in whatever room her humans are in. Once in a while when the humans take a nap, Maggie will come up on the bed and snuggle with everyone.

Maggie would do well in a home with either another dog to play with, or someone who will ensure she gets regular exercise either by playing in a fenced in area or with walks. She is a very happy dog and would make a great addition to any family!!

Maggie is available for adoption through Grand River All Breed Animal Rescue. The adoption donation is $375. All of our dogs are spayed or neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated as part of their adoption. Please fill out our Adoption Form if you are interested. You can also reach us by email at

About Grand River All Breed Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

As a non-profit animal rescue group our focus is:

To adopt dogs, cats and other companion animals into suitable homes.

To ensure that all dogs and cats placed by our rescue are spayed and neutered to ensure that we are not contributing to the pet overpopulation problem.

To promote responsible and healthy pet care, including humane training techniques and healthy diets.
to rescue animals from over-crowded shelters and the streets.

Our members are understanding and caring people who are pet owners and caregivers. They understand the care and attention that pets require but also how fulfilling (if occasionally challenging) a life with pets can be. We're not here just for the animals, but for their owners as well!

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our pets are all located in foster homes and an application must be approved in order to meet one of our pets.

Our Adoption Process...

Grand River All Breed Rescue's adoption process involves an adoption application, reference checks, and discussion about the potential adoptive home, including a home visit. We follow this process as we do have a responsibility to ensure that we place each pet in a home that is suitable and committed to caring for the pet for the rest of its' life.

We match our rescues to their new homes, and filling out an adoption application, or proceeding with our adoption process does not guarantee the acceptance of an adoption application. We reserve the right to refuse an applicant for any reason, at our discretion.

Please note that once we begin an application, we hope to have it completed within a couple days, based upon availability, particularly of your references. We are just as excited to find our pets their forever home as you are to adopt!

All GRAB animal require an adoption donation. Our adoption donations help us to pay for the many costs associated with rescuing animals, including veterinary bills, food, litter and other pet supplies, and administrative costs. The majority of our animals are adopted out for less than what it cost us to rescue them, and we do not make money on our pets. All adoption donations go directly back into our account which allows us to continue rescuing animals.

Currently our adoption donation for dogs is $375 and for cats is $175. Rabbits are adopted out for $60 and are spayed or neutered. Please ask us about adoption fees for other small pets, including guinea pigs, degus, etc.

For dogs and cats, our adoption donation includes a veterinary exam, vaccines, deworming and flea treatment (if needed), spay or neuter and microchip.
