Facts about Maggie

  • Breed: Chow Chow Mix
  • Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn
  • Age: Senior
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Female
Maggie's owner of 10 years passed away in late 2016 and her family couldn't keep her. It was obvious that Maggie was well cared for with her owner, as she came to us with detailed vet records going back a decade. After our initial vet check we learned that while Maggie is an older girl, she is in good health. She takes a supplement to help her joints and gets around pretty well for her age. However, Maggie doesn't like stairs or hardwood floors. Much like a senior human, she prefers one story houses with carpets and rugs! On carpet and outside she has a pep in her step! Maggie loves every person she meets but is a bit pickier but other dogs. See, Maggie was an only child for 10 years. She can live with ONE other calm, submissive dog, put wouldn't be happy in a home with multiple dogs. She would love a nice quiet home with laid back person (family.) She really enjoys being outside so she would love a porch or a deck where she can rest with her human and watch the wind blow! We think Maggie would be great with an older couple or empty nesters searching for a companion. She enjoys excursions and does well in the car! Mags is spayed, up to date on shots, chipped and comes with 2 months of flea/tick prevention and heartworm prevention. Adoption fee waived to an approved home. Suggested donation of $50 requested, but not required.

** All HART dogs are fully vetted prior to adoption (spay/neuter, chipped, up to date on all age-appropriate vaccinations, HW tested and given prevention).

About Hermitage Animal Relief Team

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a small rescue comprised of four founders and a handful of generous volunteers. The co-founders met when we were volunteers in various rescue efforts around Nashville and we became close friends. Our suburban community just outside of Nashville is overrun with unwanted animals. We are doing our part to get those dogs healthy and find them loving homes where they can thrive. We also offer a pet assistance program to people struggling to provide for their animals. We will help with food/supplies and basic vetting. HART believes in empowering the community to better care for pets and prevent the overcrowding of our metro shelter. We push spay/neuter and rescue in everything we do! We are 100 percent foster-based and we rely heavily on the generosity of our community to help via fostering, donating and volunteering. HART operates on a shoe-string budget and 100 percent of every penny that comes in goes directly toward the care and rescue of animals. We know we can't do it alone and we have fostered wonderful relationships with like-minded people and organizations in our community. There is tremendous strength in our numbers.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We have adoption events at various locations in east Davidson and Wilson County and we participate in dog-centric festivals and events throughout the year! Our events are updated here: and on our Facebook page:
If you wish to meet a dog in person and are unable to attend an event, contact us here: and we'll make it happen!

Our Adoption Process...

ALL adopters must first be approved through our application (which is available online or in hard copy in person). The application is about 4 pages and asks a series of questions about the adopters' lifestyle, plans for the dog(s) etc. For example: We ask how the adopter plans to train the dog, where they will sleep, have they ever euthanized for any reason other than deteriorating health, whether they have a fenced-in yard, children in the home, etc. We also ask for a personal reference and a vet reference. The disclaimer on the application states that they understand the commitment they are making, they will return the animal to us if they are forced to give the animal up and ensure they know what vetting has been done. Once an application is approved, we allow a 1-week trial to ensure the dog(s) and the family are a good match. ALL of our dogs are spayed/neutered prior to adoption. In the event that an pup is too young to be fixed at the time of adoption, that falls under the "foster-to-adopt" category, meaning, the dog can live with them, but the adoption isn't final until surgery/age appropriate vaccinations are complete. On top of vetting, we also chip all dogs prior to adoption. After the 1-week trial is up, one of the rescue coordinators goes to the home to do a final check and collect any remaining payment on the adoption fee.
Adoption fees vary but are typically as follows: $225 for puppies, $200 for adult dogs, $150 for seniors or dogs that come to us already vetted.
We do everything in our power to vet the people we adopt to.
