Maggie 1
I’m one spoiled pup!
  • Name:  Maggie Mae
  • How I Got My Name: My human’s mother decided I looked more like a Maggie Mae than a Luna Mae, like she considered naming me.
  • Breed: Australian Shepherd
  • Nickname: Maggie Moo, Magoo, Miss Mae, and Wiggle Butt
  • Age:  Approximately 7
  • Adoption Date:  October 2014
  • Adoption Story: I was running wild through the streets of Fishing Creek when a lady saw me and made efforts to bring me closer to her.  She only had Chinese food and pizza for leftovers, which I sneakily made my very own.  She gently welcomed me indoors and showered me with love and a warm bath.  Upon my surprise, she had two furry friends in her tiny home, but there was no place for me to run and play.  She posted flyers, knocked on doors, and made Facebook posts to find my previous owners or a new home.  No one claimed me from the flyers, and others reported they had seen me running around for weeks.  That’s when my now human momma asked to give me a home.  She then took me to a vet to be checked for a microchip and to be well cared for.  I had a long recovery from malnutrition, mange, and various allergic reactions, but my momma loved me more than ever, and I stayed by her side.  At first, she let me live with her parents because she needed to return to school.  She then found a home that suited both her and I!  While living with my grandparents, I spent my time snuggling and playing, and soon my scars healed, my hair grew back, and I comforted my human companions with butt wiggles. I am now living with my human momma and am an only dog surrounded by lots of love!

 

  • Best Tricks: I do this pretty nifty trick where I randomly throw myself on the ground, roll over, and get endless belly rubs and treats. I also sit, stay, roll over, hug, jump, and bark on command!
  • Collar Color I Sport Best:  Maroon!  It brings out my beautiful fur features! Maggie 2
     
  • My Fur Family:  Me…and only me!
  • Favorite Fur Friends:  I most enjoy Dallas, a big, loving bulldog, who lives with my grandparents!  I am also very fond of the twice daily company of a wiggle butt Corgi that always stops outside my home to say hi!
  • Favorite Activities:  My all-time favorite things to do include sunbathing, taking long walks, snuggling my humans, playing tug, and begging for food and treats.
  • Favorite Toy:  I love my moose stuffed animal, marrowbones stuffed with peanut butter, and a tattered rope tug toy.  Nothing beats a good play session with my toys!
  • Favorite Treats/Food: I love, love, love my (Xylitol-free) peanut butter, cooked green beans, and peas.  I have some allergies, however, that require me to eat gluten free food and treats!
  • Favorite Memories of Pet:  I once taught myself to roll over, and my human momma tells me that this is her all-time favorite memory of me!
  • Life Lessons Learned From Maggie: 
    1.  Always comfort a friend.
    2.  Long walks and sunsets can soothe and calm any bad day.
    3.  Be the weight… then they can’t move or leave!
