Maggie #18 Black Labrador Retriever Mix Female ~8 Years Old ID#3328

June 24, 2023

Maggie is a super sweet senior girl (8-10 yrs old) who was pulled from a shelter after being found as a stray.  Maggie is very laid back and enjoys spending time with her people.  Maggie is spayed, up to date on vaccinations and is house broken.  Maggie rides quiet in the car but does need help getting in and out.  Maggie walks excellent on the leash and enjoys short strolls around the neighborhood.  Maggie was a hit at the vets office yesterday, everyone loved her.  Maggie got two thumbs up from the vet so she is ready to pack her bags and find her forever home.

Maggie’s ideal home would be one where someone is home with her the majority of the time and can continue the work on her separation anxiety.  A home with a fenced backyard would be a plus as Maggie likes to lay outside but certainly not required.

Boy did I have a busy weekend.

Saturday FM and I went on a road trip to visit a friend.  Of course, I rode quietly in the car, occasionally I sat up and looked out the window but for most of the ride I just laid down, coming home I slept almost the whole hour because I was tired from my adventure.   I encountered barn cats and got up close to the horses.  I didn’t pay much attention to either.  I got to meet another dog named Buddy.  While I don’t appreciate other dogs in my face we did walk nicely together while FM and her friend were walking off their lunch 😊

Sunday, I had a lot of visitors.  Foster Grandma and Grandpa came for a visit.  Later in the day I had a visit from another Brookline volunteer and her husband.  I very much enjoyed my visit! I was petted almost the whole time they were here.  Did I mention I just love people!  They couldn’t stop talking about how sweet and quiet I am.  I didn’t even bark when they rang the doorbell.Black Labrador RetrieverI know I told you before how well I walk on my leash, but I thought you should also know, as we encounter friends out and about on our walks, I am the best girl.  I don’t pester or interrupt the conversation for attention.  I sit quietly beside FM and wait for her to finish her conversation.  Tonight, she talked longer than normal so I just laid down beside her and waited for her to tell me we were ready to move on.

Well, that is all for now.  Will update you again soon.

Maggie here, I’ve been in my foster home for about a week now.  I continue to impress FM on what a great dog I am.  We stroll the neighborhood several times a day and I walk right beside FM.  Proud to say no accidents in the house and I signal to go out.  I don’t get on the furniture or get into things that aren’t mine.  I love to lay outside in the shade for a few minutes after our midday walk and just enjoy the sights and sounds. Black Labrador RetrieverFM gave me a hose bath in the back yard the other day.  She didn’t even have to hold my leash, I just stood still while she bathed and rinsed me.  After being toweled off I got to lay briefly in the sun, we then went back inside and FM used the blow dryer for the finishing touch.

I have dry eye so I need ointment in my eye several times a day, no worries though, I make it easy.  I will lay down and flop over on my side for easy application of the eye ointment.Black Labrador RetrieverI do love my people being home with me.  FM left me home alone and I did exhibit anxiety about being alone in the home.  FM is working with me to see if crating makes me more comfortable when I must be left home alone.  FM also said I have a new enrichment toy coming this week so I’m looking forward to receiving my Amazon package.  I do go into my crate on my own and have spent time in there on my own terms but not yet a fan when FM closes me in.Black Labrador RetrieverI have a routine vet appointment on 6/23 and hope to be looking for my forever home shortly.

That’s all for now, I will check back in again soon.

Maggie is starting her 3rd day in my home.  She clearly has lived in a home before.  No accidents, no fear of loud noises, vacuum, or hair dryer.  She slept 9 hours on her dog bed last night beside my bed, I woke her up to go outside.  Maggie still isn’t interested in eating much but with a little tuna topper and me standing close by she will eat most of what I give her.  Maggie walks excellent on the leash.  Even though it is retractable she stays right by my side while we stroll the neighborhood.  We have encountered multiple dogs at a distance the last few days.  While she looks in their direction she doesn’t pull to meet up with them and she doesn’t bark toward them.

Maggie’s rescue ride was smooth sailing!Black Labrador Retriever Mix

She got into my car like it was part of her daily routine.  The sweet girl didn’t make a sound the whole hour we were driving.  Once we arrived home we did a little walk around the yard to do our business and then went inside.  Maggie walked in like she owned the place.  She went  and explored the whole first floor and then plopped down for a much needed nap.Black Labrador Retriever Mix

Will keep you posted as I get to know Maggie better but what I know already is she is the sweetest girl.
