This is sweet Maggie. She had been seen on a 50 mile an hour road 4 different times and one day her foster mom was finally able to catch her. She was stinky and had a bad case of fleas and was brown instead of white. Her foster mom took her in as a very scared little dog, and living in the home and being clean and healthy Maggie has evolved into the sweetest and most appreciative dog ever.
She is just soaking up all the love and attention. She really loves to cuddle and sleep on the couch next to you during the day. At night she sleeps in her bed on the floor next to her foster mom. Maggie doesn't bark or cry. She wined once on her first night and I told her "no" and I never heard another peep out of her. She seems to be a very happy little girl and full of life. She would love to be someone's best friend and go with you where ever you go.
She weighs 19 lbs, and we believe she may be a pure breed Shih Tzu, even though she is a little bigger than normal. She is about 2 to 3 years old.
She will be getting spayed next week and will be ready for adoption on Valentine's day.
For more information on Maggie, please call her foster mom Lorrie at 360-894-4581, or e-mail her at firstname.lastname@example.org
Rescue Group Info...
Second Chance Dogs was founded by a group of 3 determined women who, for years, independently helped "in need" dogs transform their current situations. In July, 2009, they joined forces and started Second Chance Dogs, a non-profit organization in an effort to help more dogs in more ways. Each member brings to the organization their own special gift, and when combined, allows Second Chance Dogs to offer a variety of services to help rehabilitate and find loving homes from these dogs.
Our pets are in foster homes, and can be viewed online on Petfinder.com and Adopt-a-Pet.com
1. Indicate Interest about the dog who is available for adoption
2. Discuss the dog’s biography with people who will often be with the dog
3. Make a list of questions about the dog
4. Evaluate the amount of time you can be with the dog…….he/she is a new family member
5. Fill out the adoption application
6. Send photos of the yard(s) & schedule a home visit
7. After Board approval, the foster family will get in touch with you ; scheduling a “meet and greet”
8. One of more Board members will be present at the “meet and greet”
9. A protocol for the “meet and greet” is sent to the people considering adoption.
10. SCD consults may take place throughout the application process. Topics such as dog nutrition; medical needs; training; getting along with other pets in the home may need to be discussed
11. When the “meet and greet” goes 100% well, depending on circumstances, the dog may go home with the new family
12. After the majority of “meet and greets”, the potential adopting family and SCD will review how things went and discuss options (people and/or dog training)
