MAGGIE is a sweet girl in the prime of her life at a young 9 years of age. She loves to be outside poking around and gets along well with all of her doggie housemates (except the wiener dog but he doesn’t get along with anyone!) She sleeps well in her crate and is generally a pretty quiet girl. She loves to be with her humans , greeting them at the door with great exuberance and laying at their feet while in the house. She is great on a leash and loves to go for walks. She doesn’t like to groomer very well but is oh so pretty when she is done with her spa day! Maggie would be best in a home with no young children as she is set in her ways and would like to keep it that way! She’s a lovely girl that deserves her forever home.

About Save My Tail Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

A little about our founders ~

Hello my name is Deena and I live in Oshawa, Ontario with my husband Norm and step daughter Amber. Along with our 4 rescue dogs and rescue cat. My parents were forever hearing plea’s from me as a child.. ” can’t we just bring this Bird, Cat, Dog frog etc.. home??? ” When I went away to school it wasn’t long before I rescued my first dog. Lola was the first of many.

When I moved out to British Columbia I found myself working at a boarding facility for dogs. Here I learned how to deal with various personality issues that arose in stressful situations. I also learned then that I would always be working or at least have my hand in the dog world. I dabbled in showing dogs for a short time, enjoyed it but found there was a lot of drama in that venue.

I started volunteering / fostering after I lost one of my canine soul mates to cancer in 2011. After having countless dogs through our house as a temporary foster, overnighting for transport or long term foster I realized I wanted to do MORE.

This is when I co-founded Save My Tail with a special like minded soul. We pull dogs from shelters where their days may be numbered, we put them into a loving foster home, ensure their vetting is up to date and find then LOVING FOREVER homes.

As heart wrenching as dog rescue can be, it is equalling rewarding when you see the smile of a child or adult open their heart and home to a dog in need. Our mission is to keep as many tails wagging as possible!! I am very proud to be a part of this wonderful team!!


Miranda Lives with her husband Marc and 2 children, Joshua and Isabella on their family farm in Warsaw Ontario.

Miranda has always had a soft spot for animals, saving and bringing home strays and injured animals as a young child. Into her later years Miranda developed a career with animals ~ horses in particular and is passionate about teaching others while nurturing the true bond between horse and rider.

Miranda became involved with dog rescue specifically in 2011 through a fellow horse and avid dog rescuer. After fostering multiple dogs Miranda decided to dedicate even more heart and soul to the rescue and became one of the founding members of Save My Tail.

Since then she has been involved in organizing, fostering, transportation of rescue dogs and much more!! Looking into those thankful eyes after rescuing a dog from their “final days” at high kill shelters is what makes it all worth while!
