"Hi my name is Maggie and I'm about 7-9 months old and I weigh almost 16 pounds. My foster mom thinks I'm a min pin cross. I'm shy at first but once I get to know you I'm loads of fun and have lots of puppy energy. I'm potty trained as well as crate trained. I get along with other dogs, as you can see and I walk well on leash. I've been around kids a little but they make me nervous so older kids would be preferable for me. I wish for a loving and active family. If you would like to make me part of your family, please fill out an application online at www.lapdogrescue.org and include my name at the top."
