MAGGIE#1 AD 11-26-12


ADOPTED 11-26-12 Maggie was rescued from a hoarder’s home along with 14 other dogs, all in poor health.  She was like a baby when she was first picked her up by her foster mom and has gone through a second “puppyhood” learning new things about her world.  For the horrible start she had with life, she is a loving and gentle dog that is eager to please and be loved.

Maggie is healthy now but when she was first taken into rescue, she had an ear infection in her right ear, dermatitis and was emaciated.  Thanks to her loving care given by her wonderful family, her skin has cleared up, she has put on weight, her fur is growing back shiny and her ear has also been treated.  She has some dental tartar, but some has cleared up in the last month because her mom has lovingly been brushing her teeth.

Maggie has a moderate activity level and she is a friendly and outgoing dog.  She loves to greet everyone to say hi and is willing to play with anyone.  She doesn’t like going out in the rain, but loves running around on the snow/grass. She loves chewing sticks and lying in the sun, but her favorite thing is to cuddle up next to someone (human or dog) to take a nap.  These are all things that she has never had before and her previous experience with her hoarder has not destroyed her faith in humans. She is very excited and happy when her humans come home and there’s nothing better than being greeted by a happy dog after being away from home.

Maggie likes going on walks, running in a yard or simply cuddling next to someone on a couch.  She doesn’t require a lot of exercise, but she likes to spend time with people.  Taking her out on a quick walk, running with her in the yard, or playing with her in the house will do the trick.  She also will play on her own to keep herself occupied if she has a toy or bone to chew on.

Maggie is excellent with other dogs, big and small.  She likes to rough house with larger dogs, her foster brother is a Saint Bernard. She can hold her own running and playing with larger dogs.  Maggie has been good with everyone she has been introduced to.  She hasn’t been around young children, but she is very gentle and I believe she would do well with anyone.

It should not be surprising that she is good with cats and likes to say hello and check everyone out but isn’t aggressive.  Maggie has been fed Purina, but I’m sure will do fine being introduced to another brand.  She also enjoys peanut butter and treats.  She is house trained, good in the car and crate very good on the leash. These are all new things for her to learn and her foster mom worked very hard to help Maggie understanding all those skills.

Sponsored Dogs – They Need Your Help!



RDVG wants to provide you with as much information as we can because some of our mix breeds you might not be familiar with. The below section on “About the Breed” offers information on some of the Breed Characteristics, Children & Pets, Behavior and Personality, Temperament and more.

It is important to point out that in addition to the breed, there is an enormous variety in the way a dog acts and reacts to the world around him. In the end, your dog’s preferences and personality are as individual as you are–and if you can accept that– then you’re bound to enjoy each other.

Children & Pets

Animal Behavior Guidelines

Many children, especially very young ones, do not realize that pets are living animals and not toys. Failing to teach a child how to handle pets properly can result in suffering on the part of the pet and, in some cases, injury to the child. Taking introductions slowly will allow you to introduce family dogs and your children safely

Puppy Behavior, Growth & Development

Each stage of Puppy Growth and development is fascinating; by the time it reaches its first birthday a puppy is considered a mature, adult dog. Puppy Growth rate is fast compared to humans, just compare a puppy of 8 weeks to a baby of the same age.

One of the most common questions asked about a puppy’s growth and development rate refers to the eventual size of the puppy. How big will the puppy grow? How can you determine the adult size of a puppy? A young puppy is tiny and cute – everyone loves puppies! But will the puppy be suited to your environment? How much exercise will be required for a full grown dog? Will the puppy be a suitable pet for children? The breed of the puppy will determine the answers to these questions. A general response to the size and growth rate of a puppy and the adult size of a puppy is therefore not possible – it needs to be specific to the puppy’s breed.
