We were contacted by a dog warden to see if we could take in this young girl. Maggie, as we have named her, cannot be a year old and arrived underweight and with mange. The dog warden began treatment and once she had done her 7 days she came across to us. She was microchipped but it was not registered. The first 4 photos show what state she was in on arrival!
Maggie is the sweetest and most loving little girl and hated being left so kennels were not ideal for her but we obviously had to keep her isolated to start until we are sure she was not contagious for other dogs.
Maggie was very lucky to get herself a super foster home where she has made amazing progress and is now clear of mange. She did have separation anxiety which was worked on and she can now be left for a couple of hours, but she will need a home where there are people around most of the time. She loves people and is learning a lot of commands with the help of treats which she also loves. Maggie would be fine with older children but would not place with younger children purely because we do not know her history.
Maggie initially was non reactive to other dogs, and if anything kept herself to herself, however she is now reactive on lead and we wonder if some of this is to do with ‘ownership of her person’ so will be something a new home will have to continue to work with.
Maggie’s ideal home is where there are quiet and confident people who are around most of the time to continue working with her. There is not an ounce of malice in this girl when it comes to people and she will be a loving companion.
Maggie is now in foster with other dogs where they will be working her socialisation with other dogs which is going well so far. She is now spayed and vaccinations have been restarted.
This special little girl deserves a special home!
Maggie has been adopted.
