Maggie is looking for a loving forever family! She is a little shy with new people and situations, but once she knows you and loves you her true personality will shine through. Maggie is best friends with Dot (125628) and they have even lived together! She will need a family that gives her plenty of time to settle into her new routine. She has been spending time in a loving foster home to help her gain some confidence.

Here is what her foster mom has to say:

“Maggie is doing great!  She was very withdrawn and shut down the first day. We let her settle for the night and she slept very well in the crate although she refused all food and water. She seemed to open up as soon as she was outside so in thinking she may have been a dog that spent most of her time outside. We offered her food as we were sitting on my front lawn and she devoured it! We have come to understand that she loves to either be outside in the yard or sitting at the door in my sun room just watching the world. She walks well on a leash, she actually trails and walks behind you with an occasional “run to catch up” if she has walked too slow. She is eating well now, either on the deck or in the sunroom because that is where she seems most at ease. Her crate is in my 18 year old son’s room and she happily goes in at bed time and I am happy to say that she is fully house trained. It is nice to see her starting to come out of her shell. She has started some sort of houndy howl/singing and if my son “ ignores” her she pushes herself up on him, throws her head back and sounds like a fire engine—it is just too cute!”
