From the Foster: Swimming, jogging, playing fetch, going for road trips, hanging out on the patio... I am your ultimate summertime pal! I love EVERYONE that I meet, small and tall, greeting Humans with a wiggly butt and a loving rub with my head. Because I'm a friendly gal, everyone is pretty glad to meet me, too. I am happily affectionate with my Foster Humans, rubbing them with my nose and head, looking for cuddles and belly rubs and butt scratches whenever I can get them. My three Kids have treated me very well- giving me daily walks, playing fetch with me in the yard, snuggling in front of the heater vents on cold winter mornings... everything a doggy could ask for. I have great doggy manners, waiting nicely at the back door before coming inside, sitting patiently as my food bowl is filled and set down, and letting my Foster Humans move through doors first when they say "excuse me". I'm so smart and I learn so quick, I just can't wait for you to teach me how to be the BESTDOGEVER for your family.
Although it takes me a while to adjust to close quarters with other dogs, I can be a good sister dog to mellow dogs that know how to calmly remind me of my place in the family. I would likely do best with a more mellow male friend, but would be fine and easiest being an only doggie, too. I don't like to be approached loudly by dogs I've never met when I'm out walking, but with patient, persistent guidance I can learn to enjoy meeting new doggy-friends. It's better if I live in a dog-only house, though, because I find kitties SO VERY EXCITING that I can't even think straight when they are in my sight.
I'm so happy to sleep in my kennel at night... it's my very own snuggle space. I enjoy fuzzy little blankets to cuddle up on during chilly weather, and am especially happy curled up in the laps of my Foster Humans. I know exactly where doggies go potty - outside - and have never had an accident in my house. I know that dog toys are for me and people things are for my Humans, so you won't find me chewing shoes or wrestling furniture. When you have to go out during the day, I get very excited to go in my kennel and have a Kong toy with a small cookie inside to keep me busy. Of course, I'm ever so happy to greet you when you come home again!
Maggie Fun Fact: I *love* doggy sweaters and coats... I look so cute dressed for my winter walks!
