Meet MAGGIE! *courtesy post - contact Laura Mulligan via email at email@example.com for adoption info!
Maggie is about 6 yrs. old. We found her at our local shelter, she was a stray and she is a female boxer. Her head makes me think that she may be a mix of something, but maybe not. She is a fawn, small (about 55-60lbs). She is prone to allergies so we've kept her on a Zyrtec regimen recommended by our veterinarian. Maggie would do best as an only dog, she loves all the attention! I don't know that she's ever met a cat, but I would imagine she would be very uncomfortable knowing Maggie's personality. Meeting knew people is stressful for her, but she comes around. Mostly it takes a couple minutes of her being weary and then she will come up and be kind to someone we let in our home. She will bark out the window at strangers, but we've been working with her on that. She is scared of small children. I would say to keep her away from toddlers and any child that doesn't have a concept of space, like crawling or pulling on her. She gets frightened and will snap, but she's not aggressive or egregiously snappy and has never bit anyone. Maggie is spayed and vaccinated, but not microchipped. She is housebroken, kennel trained, walks great on a leash, does great in the car and travels very well. She wont scratch at the door to come in or go outside to potty so we have to let her out when we notice her sitting by the door, that's her cue for potty. We are in Hesperia, CA.
