My name is Maggie. I am a 9-pound, female Chihuahua mix. My foster mom feels that I might have some Corgi mixed in me because of my rounded ears and my conformation that kind of hints Corgi was in my family past. I'm about 6 years old and I am what is lovingly known as an LBD (Little Brown Dog). My foster mom says LBDs are the best dogs in the whole wide world! I’m a very social and happy girl and I love to meet new people. I’m always the star at adoption events.
I would love a fenced yard but it’s not a requirement because I walk well on a leash. I just enjoy being with my human! If it's not out enjoying nature with you then I'm going to be by your side with my head in your lap while watching your favorite TV show. I'm a fairly laid-back little girl but I do like to play with toys and other little dogs my size. A dog buddy isn't a must in my new home but if there is one, it would be especially nice if they are playful. I’m good with cats and there are three that live at my foster home and I don’t bother them. If they turn out to be a scaredy-cat I might chase them.
I’m an enthusiastic eater and I wouldn't be a good choice if you have young children that wouldn't understand that what is mine is mine and what is theirs is mine too, so please no kids under the age of 12. I'm doing well with my house-training as long as my foster mom takes me outside to potty every couple of hours. At night I've been sleeping in a crate and I'm very quiet and go to my crate when my foster mom tells me to go to bed. I'm really a good girl!
During my stay with SBRET, I've had two surgeries - bilateral perineal hernia and double knee surgery for luxating patellas in my knees. I also had a dental and only lost a couple of teeth. I am spayed and I'm up-to-date with all of my vaccinations. I'm heartworm-negative and on monthly prevention. My adoption fee is $175. So now onto the next step into my new life...is that with you?
Love and kisses forever, Maggie!
