Maggie is a very sweet dog who will make for a loving, devoted companion for a very lucky family! She follows me everywhere I go and loves to cuddle. She doesn't bark unless she sees deer or hears an unfamiliar voice, and she is usually excellent on a leash (sometimes she pulls a little when there's a lot going on and she's experiencing sensory overload). Maggie is super friendly and just wants to meet all people! We are working on her manners because she likes to jump up on people, especially when she first meets them; she doesn't tend to do it much or at all after she's met you and is comfortable with you. She isn't very high-energy and has a calm demeanor. Maggie doesn't love going in her crate, so I usually have to coax her in with food (she's extremely food motivated), and she's much better about being in a crate if she can see you. We are currently working on "sit" and she's getting it quicker and quicker every time.

She is excellent with my older kids (age 14 and 15) and has not been around younger kids, but I would imagine she would love kids too. She has not been tested with cats. I have a smaller, older chihuahua who keeps to herself so this dynamic is a good one. My other dog is a very playful, high-energy shepherd mix who, for the most part they get along, although they do take turns being a bit of a bully to each other or occasionally snapping at each other (more so coming from Maggie), so I'm undecided if she would be a good fit with a high energy dog. I would be quite cautious on allowing her to be around unfamiliar dogs and would probably avoid it (while on walks or especially in a confined area such as a building).

She’s never had an accident in the house and goes to the door when she wants out. My favourite thing about Maggie is how when you scratch her under her chin she puts all her weight on your hand like she’s trusting you to take away all her hurt that she’d ever gone through. She’s also great at giving hugs when she sits by you and lovingly rests her head on your chest.

Maggie was just spayed, microchipped, and vaccinated this past Tuesday, November 23rd. She weighs 69 pounds and is approximately 2 or 3 years old.
