More About Me
Dogs like Maggie are rare and always in high demand.
She is good natured and has a warm, affectionate personality. She is playful and eager to please.
Maggie will thrive in a home with people who are passionate about dogs and see dogs as another family member.
Maggie is ok for full time workers (9am-5pm) as long as she is a central focus when people are home. She would be fine with another friendly permanent dog around the same size but this is not essential.
As Maggie is people orientated she needs to be part of family activities.
She will not suit homes with residents that are very young, frail, elderly, renters or time poor.
Medium - playful and moderately active. Loves a daily walk or two. Chases and catches balls.
When ON a lead ...
Like most dogs she starts off pulling but settles.
When OFF a lead ...
Takes off and won't come back. She is likely to respond well to training.
Type of Yard Required
Medium to large interesting and secure. She will dart through an open gate or door and take off. Shoulder height fencing is adequate.
Tolerance to Being Alone During the Day
Will alert to something strange but is not currently a nuisance barker.
Maggie will suit any of the following:
Likes, Dislikes, Fears, Endearments and Quirks
Maggie enjoys human company but her owners are no longer able to give her the attention and time she deserves.
She likes chasing and catching squeaky balls and does not seem to have any dislikes or fears.
She can be a bit of an excitable 'goof ball' when playing which is why we recommend any other dogs be around the same size and kids be 8 yrs plus.
She's a beautiful, loving dog.
