Meet Maggie,or Maggie Lou, as she’s called by her foster dad. Maggie originally came into SGSR in March, 2015, and she is about 4 years old. Maggie has off-the-chart drive, and for that reason, she began service dog training with her foster dad through Wags for Warriors. She goes just about everywhere with him and to say she is well-behaved in public is an understatement. Maggie is extremely smart and LOVES to work, even more than she loves to play. She loves her job of accompanying her “person” everywhere and is at her best when she is thinking and learning new commands. Maggie gets along with all people and dogs while she’s “working”; however, when she’s not working, she isn’t really the type to frolic around with other dogs much. She gets along better with submissive male dogs, but females…not so much. When she’s not in work mode, she isn’t a fan of obnoxious children (we think her previous owner’s children teased her). And like any good GSD, Maggie is protective of her home and will bark when guests first arrive. However, once she warms up to a new visitor, she is more than receptive to their attentions! She is fine with cats as long as they are dog-savvy. Maggie absolutely loves to fetch, run, ride in vehicles and swim. At the beach playing fetch, you will be worn out well before this girl ever could be. Maggie will do best in a home with a loving but firm handler with GSD experience. She is very calm in the house, but it’s because her foster insures that she gets lots of exercise and structure every day. She adores her “person”, but also bonds with others in a family setting. She does not enjoy a crate, but she can be trusted to have free roam of the house and has never chewed anything she shouldn’t. She will, however, sneak up on a soft bed or couch! We would prefer that Maggie be adopted by someone (preferably a veteran) who requires a service dog. If her adopter is local, she can finish her training with Wags for Warriors. If you are in VA, NC or MD and interested in making Maggie part of your family, please complete an adoption application at our website, www.southeastgermanshepherdrescue.com (be sure to read the FAQ section). Maggie is being fostered in Norfolk, VA.
Our adoption process consists of a telephone interview, a call to your veterinarian and a home visit. If you have any questions about the adoption process please contact firstname.lastname@example.org .
