Maggie has gone to her furever home:-)
This beautiful tan, short-coat Chihuahua was surrendered to CCRT by her owner who was no longer able to keep her. Maggie is four years old, weighs 5.4 pounds and is sweet as can be.
Maggie is a very affectionate, needy little girl who is always wagging her tail and hoping to curl up in your arms so she can be close to you and give you kisses. She loves to do her happy dance to let you know she is thrilled to see you, or to remind you that it is mealtime. She bonds very closely with her humans and is a joy to live with.
During the pandemic, it has not been possible to socialize Maggie by introducing her to new people and places, so she is quite timid with strangers and fearful of leaving home. With a little time, love and patience, Maggie will reward her adopter with unconditional love.
Maggie is definitely a lap dog who needs to be with her human as much as possible. Her favourite activities are eating, sunbathing, exploring her backyard, getting tummy rubs, and lounging in her dog bed under her blanket. Dog toys hold no interest for Maggie; she would rather act silly and play games with her human.
CCRT’s vet has given Maggie a wellness exam, vaccinated, spayed and microchipped her. Maggie has bilateral grade 2 luxating patellas which do not bother her at this time, although she will often hop for a few minutes if she gets too rambunctious when playing zoom-doggie.
The forever home Maggie is waiting for is in a house where her main caregiver is able to be with her most of the time, such as a retiree or someone who permanently works at home. A securely fenced, private yard is also a must for Maggie to get her exercise and do her business because she has not yet learned to walk on leash. She is house-trained and uses pee pads only for emergencies.
Because of Maggie’s petite size, any children in her forever home must be at least 10 years of age. Maggie eats prescription dog food because she has food allergies and possibly IBD. Due to her very strict diet, she must be the only dog in her forever home in order to prevent her from eating any food or treats meant for other dogs. We have not had the opportunity to see how Maggie reacts to cats.
If you fit this description of Maggie’s ideal forever home and are interested in adopting her, please fill out an adoption application. You can also purchase a sweater and/or blanket for her or any of our foster dogs. Please consider becoming a CCRT Sponsorship Angel for any of our foster dogs by making a cash donation towards their care.
