52833 – Maggie
Why choose me?
Update 12/15: Maggie needs a hospice home 🙁 Maggie has mast cell lymphoma which can be managed for now but means she needs a hospice foster or adopter to let her live out her life peacefully and in comfort. She’d do best as the only pet in a home or as the companion to a calm, male dog–she does get nervous with cats and more rambunctious or territorial female dogs. She’s a sweet girl and deserves a soft bed for however many days she has left.
Update from Maggie’s holiday foster 11/30: I know it’s Thanksgiving, but all I can think about is the fact that this sweet girl may have to go back to the shelter this weekend. She is absolutely amazing and deserves the best home in the world. This baby is emaciated and came to us with a decent amount of scabs on her body. She is still skinny, but is starting to look better. Her personality is also drastically different from what it was in the shelter. At our house, she has been the perfect guest. She is house/potty trained and will go into the crate when you just point at it. She pees on command outside and gives all of the snuggles inside. She is happy to sleep in bed with you, on a dog bed on the floor, or in a crate. She has the goofiest, cutest personality and I need her to find the perfect home. She does not do well with some dogs, but has all of the love to give. Please consider fostering or adopting this sweet girl.
I know it’s difficult for dogs to be surrendered and lose their homes. I’m sure it’s especially hard for senior dogs like Maggie. When I met her, she was on a blanket on her bed in the back of her kennel. She raised her head to acknowledge me but wasn’t at all sure about leaving the safety of her bed. With pets, encouragement, and some chicken from another volunteer, Maggie walked tentatively with me to an interaction pen. She was scared but always sweet and never snappy. When she met Freckles at the fence, her tail finally untucked. Then another volunteer joined us and things began to look even better. She was really good with Maggie, and now Maggie is in a temporary foster home with her for the holidays. A recent update states that Maggie is a perfect house guest with no accidents and is friendly with the resident dogs. I hope Maggie finds her forever home soon. She’s a sweet dog who should spend her golden years with a family who will always love and care for her.
