Hello! I’m Maggie. I was surrendered to ESRA by my previous owner because of a move and a new baby on the way.

I’m a petite girl with a cute little face and ears. I have a busy nose, and I love to explore the yard and check out what critters may be up in the trees. I can be an escape artist sometimes, and even at my foster home, I have learned to jump over the four-foot fence surrounding the yard. Therefore, my new home should have either a six-foot fence or a family who will take me on a leash into the yard every time I need to go out.

I do great in my foster home! I’m housetrained, and have not had one accident here. I came into ESRA with incontinence medicine that I continue to take every day. It’s working because I’ve had no bladder issues since I arrived.

My foster parents let me have free rein of the house during the day when they are at work, and I do fine at home all day with my canine foster brother. We cuddle on the couch, and then when my foster family is home, it’s time to play!

My foster brother and I get along well, and we love to play. Sometimes I get a little too excited playing with him, which can turn into some aggressive playing that he doesn’t like. My foster parents have been working with me to teach me how to play nicer, and I’m sure with time I will get better at playing without being so rough. I do know that my Forever Home should not have cats because I’m just too rough with them. I enjoy kids taller than me, but I get nervous around babies, so any children in my future home should be age ten or older.

I know basic commands such as Sit, Stay, Shake, and Roll Over. I love my toys, especially my rubber tennis ball! I'm proud to say that I do not chew or play with anything I’m not supposed to.

After I have had a walk or playtime in the yard, it’s time to relax for the night with my foster parents. I love to cuddle, and oh, do I love to be petted! You could pet me all day and I would still want more. (I’m so soft and cute that you won’t be able to resist!) My foster mom tells me all the time how sweet I am.

I am excited to find a family who is going to love and care for me, because I’m definitely going to love them back! If you think we might be a good match, please contact my case managers right away. I'm looking forward to cuddling with you!


Please note that an approved adoption application is the first step in a more thorough interview process that is designed to match each dog to exactly the right family, and the final decision rests with the dog’s case manager.
