Once upon a time, we sent 9 month old Maggie to what we thought would be a forever situation, but all tales do not end well. She recently came back with several infections and an astonding weight gain of approximately 60 pounds. We needed to restore her health prior to giving this sweet girl the opportunity to move on. We do understand there are times when family situations change, but sadly, Maggie became the collateral damage. She is quite the cuddler and a very sweet girl. Maggie is very friendly with everyone she has met. This includes men, children over the age of 3, and the entire staff. When she first arrived, she was reactive toward a Shepherd, so new introductions have been delayed, but there is no reason to believe she cannot cohabitate with other pups. Since she’s on a special diet, she has lost enough weight to be more agile and once she is at a desired weight, her mobility will also improve. Maggie is now 4 years old and down to 85 pounds. Her frame most likely will do best around 65 pounds. Although she still needs to lose around 15-20 pounds, we know she will succeed. There are a few medications they will need to be continued, but nothing insurmontable or expensive. Infections are gone and the only thing that remains is the need to maintain the weight management program.
We are including a picture of her as a younger dog so you can witness her beautiful face. It is the perfect time for Maggie to start the next chapter of her young life. She has worked hard to adjust to new surroundings and been a cooperativly working on her exercise and diet program, and it’s finally her time to move on to a better future.
