Maggie is a sweet and playful young girl that found herself being returned to us October last year, having been re-homed as a puppy.  Upon arriving back in our care it was evident that Maggie was incredibly fearful and anxious.  Maggie took a while to trust us, but once she realised we were no threat, she soon became firm friends with the staff. 

Maggie has been on a behavioural programme since she has been back with us and she has come on leaps and bounds – so much so, she is like a different dog and it is truly wonderful to see the changes in her.  She now has several volunteers who take her off site for long walks through the local countryside.  She also loves spending time in our enclosed exercise areas, off lead playing ball or giving her handlers lots of cuddles.

It will be important that new owners have a practical home set up, so Maggie does not have direct access to the front door.  Strangers can be a trigger for Maggie in a home environment, so it’s important that she can feel safe and secure.  This will be discussed further with potential new owners.

Maggie is incredibly intelligent and already knows several commands; sit, down, fetch, paw and she walks well on the lead.  She loves to have her brain challenged learning new things.  She has even started some basic agility, which she loves.  She would benefit from owners that can not only provide physical exercise, but keep her mentally stimulated through interactive games, further training and activity toys.  If you enjoy running, she would enjoy being your running partner.

Maggie will need a big, fully enclosed garden with a 6ft fence and her new owners should have experience fearful dogs, so they can continue to bring out the best in her.

 

Can you offer this lovely girl a loving and permanent new home?
