Hi, I'm Maggie! Don’t let my adorable grey muzzle fool you, I am 5-6 year old pup with so much love and snuggles to give. I really am not sure what breed I am, possibly Dutch shepherd because my foster mom tells me my coat is the most gorgeous, soft brindle coat she has ever pet and is always rubbing my tummy, it is fantastic. My foster dad affectionately says I have big dumb ears because I just can’t help holding them up like a tepee over my head to listen to all the strange sounds of the world. When I am really focused, they cross in front of each other for supreme hearing. I love my daily walks they keep me looking fit and trim at around 60 pounds. I practice my runway walk every day and love to strut my stuff; my foster mom and dad think I am great to walk and don’t really pull. I am basically a supermodel.
Let me tell you, I am very laid back. I could care less when my foster parents dress me up with hats and stack random things on my head. They think it is hilarious and adorable, I don’t really care as long as I get to snuggle with them. If you are looking for the best snuggling dog you will ever meet, don’t go looking anywhere else. I cannot get enough of snuggling up right next to you and am a perfect companion for watching Netflix or taking an afternoon nap.
I don’t really remember much about growing up, but for some reason I have a few irrational fears that I don’t mind sharing with you. Loud noises can freak me out, even if I cause them because I am a bit clumsy. The scariest thing out there is ceiling fans. They do absolutely nothing to me, but I always have a wary eye on the ceiling when I see them. That’s okay though! I don’t mind them that much, I think they just surprise me.
Meeting other dogs is the best thing in the world and I will flip in the air out of excitement, just to be next to them. My foster mom and dad are very patient working with me to contain my excitement, but sometimes seeing my friends (because every dog is my friend) is just too much!
I get along great with all my dog friends, big or small even if my excitement bothers them at first. My foster siblings and I have always gotten along great, but they have all been adopted. I think it is my turn next, my foster mom says that my perfect human friend will come soon enough.
Anyways, that is enough about me! I can’t wait to meet you and my foster parents are excited to put me in the best home they can because, well, I am just the best dog ever! You can click here to put in an application, and one of the foster coordinators will talk to you soon!
