Margarita has been through the wringer in her short life. According to the woman who rescued her, she had never lived in a house previously. She was originally found by people as a puppy, and her mother was hit and killed by a car. She was always kept outside of the house in a backyard filled with junk, but was given some food. The people lost their house to foreclosure, and moved on without Margarita. During the time that she lived outside that house she had at least 1 litter that we know about. When she came into the rescue initially she was heavily pregnant, and we raised and adopted out her babies. We tried placing Margarita as a service dog, but her background left her with too many fears.
This girl has SO many wonderful qualities! She is completely housebroken and went through a detailed training program as she began service training, so she knows all basic commands and walks on a leash very well. Margarita is submissive and dearly wants to please her people. She gets along wonderfully with children, other dogs, and cats. Her issues come from fear – she is nervous around strangers, and things like loud noises are very scary for her. She needs someone who is home a lot and can give her loads of reassurance and love. Don’t worry, baby, from here on you have nothing to be concerned about!!!
