Maggie is a gorgeous, sweet, and super smart pointer mix! She is a very athletic dog and would make an amazing running or walking partner. In her previous home, she lived with a person that enjoyed running so she has been trained as a jogging buddy. She has even been taught to run on the left side and to sit when the runner stops (she can also run/walk beautifully with a stroller). She knows basic commands such as sit, lay down, etc. and has completed a basic obedience class.
People are very important to Maggie and she bonds very closely to those around her. If Maggie had her way, she would never have to be apart from her family (she searches for her people when they walk away because she really wants to be close 24/7). She gets a little excited and busy in new situations but relaxes when she knows things are good. She really wants to be with you all the time but she is crate trained and crates easily with a cookie or a bone.
Maggie responds very well to commands and does well with other dogs. She is a very social dog and enjoys spending time with canine buddies and will play, play, play. Her favorite thing is to play fetch with a tennis ball and she will chase it as long as someone will throw the ball (she always brings it back and drops it at your feet). She lives with Colbie and several other dogs and they LOVE each other. Maggie is a girl that needs space to stretch her legs, so a fence is something she will need in her new home as well as an owner committed to exercising her and keeping her mentally and physically stimulated.
She is very sweet and loving and really loves to kiss and snuggle with her people. She would love some kids in her life but they need to be old enough to handle a playful, energetic dog in their space. Maggie would be ideal for an active household looking for a constant companion to make life fun and interesting. Maggie is very fond of people so her new home needs to be ready for a sweet girl that thinks she is a lapdog. She will share her thoughts and feelings with you (through play, snuggle time, and some necessary barks) and in return, she wants your love, patience, and kindness as she shares all her wonderful (and silly) ways each day!
