Arrival Story: Maggie was at death's door when she arrived at the vet's office. She was untreated for a very treatable disease which left her near death. She's made a stunning recovery & is a very happy, lively little girl who wants nothing more than to be with you and very eager to please.
Because her previous guardians were unable to give her the proper care, they surrendered her to the vet clinic, where they stabilized her, got her current on her vaccinations & spayed her. Now she is looking for that special someone who will give her the care she needs.
Bio: Maggie's previous guardian had a 4 year old boy and they were very close and she is comfortable around children. Her current foster mom has children and she is good around them too. The foster home also has a senior dog that she gets along with.
She is very responsive, eager to please and food motivated. She knows how to sit and stay and is learning down & place (go to her bed) commands. Maggie loves to play with a toy (loves those squeaky ones) and ball. She will return a fetch about 50% of the time.
Maggie has Addison's disease or hypoadrenocorticism. This requires a daily pill and a monthly injection which can be given at home or at the vet office. The vet says it is a very easy injection to administer, similar to insulin for diabetics. When Maggie receives her medication on a regular basis, she does fine and can be expected to have a normal life style and span.
Maggie weighs 18 pounds. She was below optimum weight when she came in and has gained a few pounds and could stand to gain a couple more pounds to get her ideal weight. Maggie is a party colored cocker spaniel & true to the description. You'll have a party everyday of you life with her! She is currently in a foster home waiting patiently for her special someone. Is that you?
Please note: due to our screening preference to view the potential home and interview the prospective guardian, we rarely adopt out of our local Portland metro area.
