Maggie is initially fearful of humans, but loves dogs. She need only see other dogs getting their human's love an affection to trust in that person. And from there, she will take her cues from the other dog. She's content to follow their lead and after observing for awhile, she seeks human attention, right alongside her dog friends. She is sweet and submissive -- and knows how to give kisses.
We are looking for a patient and training-oriented adopter(s) to take Maggie into their home and let her get used to the idea of being a pet. A home with an existing social, confident dog would be an awesome. And what spoiled first dog wouldn't love a low-demand second dog who is willing to be a devoted follower?
Shy dogs are a very special kind -- to win their trust and love is truly a gift. They will completely drown you in love and thanks -- and make you feel like a true rescuer who came to their aid when they needed it most!
Note from foster mom, it only took a few days and she was right by my side- and now after a couple of weeks, she is my shadow. She is such a loving and gentle dog, and to have won her trust, there's not a better feeling. She loves to walk and would make a wonderful companion.
