After coming to OPH, Maggie was enrolled in an awesome training program called Happy Hounds Prison Dog Program! Her foster mom is happy to report that Maggie has been an excellent house guest since graduating from the program. Initially, she was timid as she adjusted to the loss of a structured regimen and learned to trust her new family. In her foster home, she has blossomed into a wonderful girl with a fun personality. She has a typical young dog energy level. She enjoys being active, but also likes to relax and take naps while foster mom is teleworking.

Below are a few things about Maggie!

Maggie is a very sweet and smart girl. She loves to snuggle and knows basic commands. She is always paying attention to you and learns new words/phrases quickly.

Maggie is a very happy girl who loves to play. Once she gets to know you, she will greet you with happy tail wags and wiggles. Inside, she loves playing with toys, especially soft toys with squeakers and tennis balls. She likes to play fetch, hide and seek, and tug of war. Outside she likes to follow her nose, explore the yard, and chase squirrels and rabbits. She would do best in a home with a fenced in yard where she can run and play.

She likes to play with other dogs, especially if they also like to run and explore. She does not like to play too rough. If another dog is trying to play too rough, she will opt to stay close to foster mom. When we are away from home outside and off leash away, Maggie can meet dogs easily. At home, however, she needs slow introductions and the opportunity to learn to trust the other dog.

Maggie likes to go for walks. Foster mom walks her 1-1.5 miles every morning and evening. She has been making great progress on her leash manners, can pull if an interesting scent catches her attention and still gets overly excited by dogs walking towards her when she is on a leash. She is also not a fan of bicyclists. Maggie would do best having somewhere relatively quiet to walk-either by choice of location or time of day.

She really enjoys car rides, especially when they go somewhere fun like a doggie play date or a new place to explore with her humans.

She has learned to trust people in her foster home, and warms up to people relatively quickly now, especially when they pay attention to basic dog etiquette.

Maggie would do best with an experienced dog person who understands that she needs time to adjust to a new home and who will pay attention to her cues, as she may occasionally resource guard when she is not yet fully comfortable in a new setting.

Maggie is house trained and crate trained. She even enjoys spending time in her crate and often chooses to nap in her crate during the afternoon.
She sleeps through the night. She is content to sleep in her crate, but loves being in bed with you. In the morning, she likes to give kisses, get lots of love, and share your pillow.

Seven is up-to-date on her vaccinations and has been spayed. She is best in a home without cats, is best in a home without small children, and is not suitable in an apartment, condo or other urban setting. Seven is currently being fostered in Baltimore, MD.

All adult dogs, cats, and kittens are altered prior to adoption. Puppies too young to be altered at the time of adoption must be brought to our partner vet in Ashland, VA for spay or neuter paid for by Operation Paws for Homes by 6 months of age. Adopters may choose to have the procedure done at their own vet before 6 months of age and be reimbursed the amount that the rescue would pay our partner vet in Ashland.

This dog's bio is based off the experiences of the foster and/or volunteers of OPH as well as any information that we received from the shelter or previous owner. This is very important because it means that while they may act one way in the foster’s home, you may experience something different in your home.
