Arrival Story: I was living in an apartment with my one dog Rocky and cat Smokey my fiancee and our daughter! I went to work one day to hear one of my co-workers dogs was going to have puppies soon! She asked me if I wanted one and of course I did but I already had two animals and that was all my apartment allowed! I told her I wish I could but I couldn't! A couple months went by and 4 of my co-workers got her puppies! I was on break one day and heard her talking to someone else, she said she had one girl left that no one wanted because she was wire haired and the smallest! I heard her say if no one took her by the time she was old enough they were going to take her to the pound! I couldn't let that happen! A sweet little neglected baby scared and alone in a cage with lots of big scary doggies! I went outside and called my fiancee, he said it was ok but we'd have to hide her! I told her I wanted her and I went straight there after work! The mother dog didn't want anything to do with her and kept pushing her away! She was only 5 weeks old and her mommy wasn't feeding her! She had just barley began to walk! It was so cute she'd stand up walk a couple steps and then fall over! I took her home that night and went to the pet store and bought her replacement milk and a bottle! And everything else I would need! Rocky took to her so well and looked after her almost like she was his baby! Turns out my landlord found out and told us to get rid of her, I wouldn't let that happen so we moved in with my grandfather (on a 10 acre farm in the country) who was alone and needed company anyway! Now she has lots of room to run and play and no one is going to take her from me! I think that why she is so protective of me now! She thinks I'm her mommy, or she knows I saved her! Anyway she won't let anyone she doesn't know touch me! She has grown into such a beautiful girl
Bio: Maggie has the head and face especially the ears of a corgi and the body length coat and stature or a wire haired Doxie! Maggie weighs 17lbs and she was born on 6/4/05! She is a little spoiled and over weight, and according to the vet she should weigh about 14 lbs! She is the sweetest little girl ever! You can not sit down on the floor without being mauled with kisses! She loves belly rubs and is best buds with Bandit if not more than friends! She is truly my three year old velcro buddy! I think Maggie favors my taylor!
Maggie was actually adopted by a spactacular family! It truly broke my heart and still is every day to not have her with us! But it was best for everyone! We (my family and myself) were constantly stressed out! We love her so much and tried trainers who all turned us away after the first day! They said the best thing would be to euthanize her. NO WAY IN HELL would I ever let that happen! If we couldn't fix her problems and no one would adopt her we would keep her forever and forever try to fix her problems! She was not a happy girl! She loved her family so dearly it was incomprehensible to "share" her family. Even with her best friends Bandit and Bridgette! She loved them if it was just them. She was the sweetest girl ever when they were not around. But if they came near us when she was getting attention, she would lose it. And we spent so much time screaming, training, crying and trying everything. I even put off the idea of having a second child because of Maggie! And that she was so bonded to my daughter Taylor she would give her life to protect her. And a new baby would not be safe around her. I thought she was truly hopeless! In the end all she wants is her family all to herself. We found a wonderful family! It's just the two adults. Maggie ideal life. The only pet and with her people 24 hours a day. She goes to work with them every day. I'm just so happy that because we were not the right family for her, we found one that was. I love her and miss her so much and I will always hold a special place in my heart for her. But I know she can now finally be truly happy! And her new family is thrilled with her.
I encourage all of you out there with problem dogs! Work through them! Do not give up. If you've come to the realization your not the right fit for them. Find them one that is. There are lots of patient loving people out there that want YOUR dog! DON'T GIVE UP! Your baby is counting on you!!
Maggie is a 17lb Corgi/Doxin mix she is 2 years old and is spayed and micro chipped! She has a very bad case of fear based aggression! She will need a very patient person, and gentle person! It takes her quite a while to warm up to people! She needs to be an indoor dog, and she is house trained! She is a great travel dog, she love the car and the snow! We are rehoming her because she is not happy with other dogs! She wants to be the only pet! She has become very close to our male Papillon! She loves him to death but he knows how to deal with her! Our other female dog and her can just not seem to get along! I know both girls are unhappy and I think it’s unfair to both of them! A submissive small male dog would probably be OK! But like even with people, she needs time to adjust! She has had bad experiences with large dogs and so she is petrified of them, and will bite to protect herself! She has never been around cats! She is very cute and playful! And just wants a person she can be will 24 hrs a day! It breaks my heart to let her go but I know it’s right! She’s unhappy and so… so are we! I would like her to be adopted close to us so we can still see her occasionally! And if anything were to ever happen we WANT her back!
