Maggie Rose- RIP's Info...
I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, a special needs pet, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Maggie Rose- RIP's Story...
Maggie is the most beautiful old girl. She's a 13 year old, purebred black lab, who is just the sweetest dog. If you're interested in donating toward her care, I can provide references, and you can donate directly to the vet.
I am in need of donations for her because she has kidney disease. As a result, she needs to have blood work check regularly, she's beginning to be incontinent and needs that checked out/started on medication for it, and her hips are starting to go out, she also needs that checked out, and probably to be put on a pain regiment for it. She also has to be on expensive prescription food due to the kidney disease.
I haven't had her very long, and what vetting she's had done was done by the shelter (they took her to a vet), but now I need to take her to my vet and have her thoroughly examined, and the new issues which have arisen to be addressed.
She's still a very happy girl, who loves life, and appears to be pain free so far (except possibly with her legs), so as long as she stays that way, I'm going to do whatever it takes to keep her around for as long as possible, but I suspect this will get expensive, and like most people right now, I just don't have that much extra.
She was dumped at a kill shelter by her owner because he "didn't have the time to deal with her anymore". When I saw her pictures, I knew I had to get her.
I suspect I'll probably end up "fostering" her until she dies, as the chances of anyone wanting to adopt a senior, special needs, large black dog are pretty slim.
I definitely don't mind, I already love her, but in a perfect world, she'd be in a calm home, with many other animals, and no stairs.
Ideally, she would be adopted to a home where there aren't many any stairs she'd need to go up (climbing up or down stairs hurts her hips), with someone that is home during the day (works at home, retired, etc.), and generally generally has a calm lifestyle.
She is housetrained as best as she can be, although her incontinence effect that (but there is medication that will help, if not eradicate that), and she can wear diapers if needed. She's well behaved, doesn't get into trouble, and is surprisingly spry for an old gal. She's very friendly, gets excited when she sees people, has her playful moments, and gets soo excited about food.
She's good with other dogs, although, understandably, over excitable, bouncy dogs tend to get on her nerves. She's also great with cats, she completely ignores them.
She's the sweetest girl, who just wants to be near you and to be loved. She is a fantastic dog, and anyone would be lucky to have her.
If you are interested in adopting this precious girl, she would come with many donated beds, prescription food, and as much continued help with her vetcare and/or food as was needed in the future.
