ADOPTED 11-26-2012

Maggie was rescued from a hoarder's home along with 14 other dogs, all in poor health. She was like a baby when she was first picked her up by her foster mom and has gone through a second "puppyhood" learning new things about her world. For the horrible start she had with life, she is a loving and gentle dog that is eager to please and be loved.

Maggie is healthy now but when she was first taken into rescue, she had an ear infection in her right ear, dermatitis and was emaciated. Thanks to her loving care given by her wonderful family, her skin has cleared up, she has put on weight, her fur is growing back shiny and her ear has also been treated. She has some dental tartar, but some has cleared up in the last month because her mom has lovingly been brushing her teeth.

Maggie has a moderate activity level and she is a friendly and outgoing dog. She loves to greet everyone to say hi and is willing to play with anyone. She doesn't like going out in the rain, but loves running around on the snow/grass. She loves chewing sticks and lying in the sun, but her favorite thing is to cuddle up next to someone (human or dog) to take a nap. These are all things that she has never had before and her previous experience with her hoarder has not destroyed her faith in humans. She is very excited and happy when her humans come home and there's nothing better than being greeted by a happy dog after being away from home.

Maggie likes going on walks, running in a yard or simply cuddling next to someone on a couch. She doesn't require a lot of exercise, but she likes to spend time with people. Taking her out on a quick walk, running with her in the yard, or playing with her in the house will do the trick. She also will play on her own to keep herself occupied if she has a toy or bone to chew on.

Maggie is excellent with other dogs, big and small. She likes to rough house with larger dogs, her foster brother is a Saint Bernard. She can hold her own running and playing with larger dogs. Maggie has been good with everyone she has been introduced to. She hasn't been around young children, but she is very gentle and I believe she would do well with anyone.

It should not be surprising that she is good with cats and likes to say hello and check everyone out but isn't aggressive. Maggie has been fed Purina, but I'm sure will do fine being introduced to another brand. She also enjoys peanut butter and treats. She is house trained, good in the car and crate very good on the leash. These are all new things for her to learn and her foster mom worked very hard to help Maggie understanding all those skills.

Her rescue history has left Maggie knowing that she is now with good humans; therefore, she doesn't like feeling alone, but she doesn't have separation anxiety. After time in her new home, Maggie will learn that her new family will never leave her, however, her foster mom understood Maggie and moved her crate one room closer to the bedrooms--she is very happy as can be with that. Once she feels comfortable, she is most relaxed like anyone.

Maggie would do fine with or without another animal at home, but she would love another dog that likes to play and run around with her. If you have had 2 pets and recently lost one, Maggie would be a perfect match. On the contrary, if there wasn't another pet, a home where someone works from home or a single person or senior that has time to spend with her would be great also. Most important, Maggie needs an extra loving home that will love her as much as she loves you.

About Our Rescue

These dogs deserve all of our attention, and in Rescue Dog Village, we are committed to our adopters and our dogs equally. We offer full disclosure and hope to make the best matches possible. Please know our adoption fees never cover our expenses. We rely on the generosity of our adopters and supporters to help us help the dogs.

Our rescue is ONLY in the business of offering FULL DISCLOSURE to adopters, and expects and hopes to engage your questions and concerns fully. We owe it to the dogs we rescue and all the wonderful families/adopters who might consider welcoming our charges into their hearts and home. Our dogs are waiting for that ideal forever home where they will be cherished as deserving family members. It's sad these second chances are even necessary for these dogs, but we are committed to them and will devote the time and energy to their rehoming, and not just MOVE them to save more dogs. We diligently and responsibly seek good matches as we don't want to re-home the dog again. These animals have already endured more than they should have, and through no fault of their own. It behooves us to be honest and forthright, and we appreciate the same in return from applicants. It's that winning combination of reciprocal trust and respect that allows for successful placements to be made. Happy adopters translate to happy dogs, and that's our goal!

Our rescue volunteers will be more than honored to be in touch with you directly and promptly, after receiving your application and conducting a mandatory a veterinarian check. If you have never owned a dog before, please submit your application regardless, and we will be in touch with you as soon as possible. TAKE NOTE YOU SHOULD CHECK YOUR SPAM AS SOME RESPONSES FROM US WIND UP THERE WE'VE DISCOVERED. Also, take care to contact your veterinarian to let them know a member of rescue will be inquiring about your pet history!

Thank you for respecting that we all donate our time to saving these animals, and understand we value your philanthropic and compassionate desire to help be part of the rescue team. That said, you'll understand why we are committed to the well-being of our charges and consider this veterinarian check mandatory. If you are a first-time dog owner, we will work with you every step of the way! ADVOCACY AND EDUCATION ARE AS MUCH A PART OF RESPONSIBLE RESCUE AS ADOPTION! And it takes a RESCUE VILLAGE to help the most dogs possible in a thorough manner to ensure success on all fronts, and then some! It is an awful feeling to fail a dog, and we can't continue rescue if we don't do everything we can to ensure good matches for the dogs and tender families who might adopt them. THANK YOU FOR UNDERSTANDING.

Although we are an extremely small rescue group, we understand and respect your family's eagerness to be in touch and learn as much as you can about the dogs you are considering adopting. Our very experienced and devoted trainer will be happy to share all aspects of OUR RESCUE DOGS to determine compatibility once you've submitted your application, and another of our volunteers will explain the whole process of our rescue and answer any questions you might have as well

If you have the time and love to offer this extremely bright dog who can make you laugh for hours at his antics, PLEASE APPLY TO BE CONSIDERED FOR A RESCUE DOG VILLAGE DOG AND GIVE ONE A HOME. Our dogs deserve all that a committed family can offer. Make no mistake about it, this is one spectacular dog!

Please contact and we will be happy to return your correspondence, but please submit the application now so we can have that information as a starting base for our dialogue.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Maggie, a Preston Labrador Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever for sale in Preston, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Preston.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Preston already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Preston breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Labrador Retriever breeders who help with Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Preston paves the way for another one to be saved.
