Maggie came to us from a shelter in Alabama where she had spent awhile waiting for someone to come along and rescue her! Maggie has a beautiful patterned coat, her pictures just don't do her justice.
Maggie is a timid and sweet girl. Once she warms up to you, and it doesn't take long, she cannot get enough attention. She will come seeking head rubs and belly rubs. She gets along well with other dogs and enjoys playing with her canine foster brothers.
She is crate trained and sleeps through the night in her crate without a peep. She is doing well with housebreaking and is great walking on a leash. She likes to chase cats so Maggie would really appreciate a cat free home, to help her avoid her temptations.
Maggie had a cyst removed from her ear after she arrived which required a small piece of her ear to be removed. The cyst was tested and was benign. Her vets did a stellar job with her surgery and though she looks more unique, she is still beautiful!
Maggie is a bit of a contortionist and will need a new home with a solid fence or would need to be leashed at all times.
Maggie is a sweet girl who just wants to be loved. She will make a wonderful family dog for someone who is willing to be a little bit patient with her until she comes out of her shell!
