Maggie Mae

Maggie Mae is all the way from Barbados and is ready to find her forever Canadian home! This lady loves her people and would be thrilled to find a multiple person household so she can get endless pets.

Maggie Mae is a little bull in a china shop at times but her fosters have been teaching her how to greet human friends with all 4 paws on the ground. She is absolutely people obsessed and human love is her ultimate reward. This lady is very smart but also has a stubborn side at times, so we highly recommend training classes for her. Maggie Mae has shown some guarding behaviour around high value chews so she is looking for a person who will continue to do positive exchanges and encourage trading.

Maggie Mae currently lives with cats but she loves to be in the kitties space. She wouldn’t do well around cats who are unsure of dogs as she shows a lot of interest in her feline friends. She has been quite reactive towards other dogs while on walks so it has made dog meetings very challenging. Due to this reactivity, she likely wouldn’t do well in a dog populated apartment where she may run into dogs in the hallway. Maggie Mae could make dog friends but multiple controlled and positive intros would likely be needed.

Maggie Mae did take quite a while to adjust to her new life in Canada and it took some time for her to start warming up and showing her true colours. She would love someone who will be patient with her while she gets used to her new routine. She also does best with a structured routine. She is crate trained and house trained but she may have some accidents while adjusting to her new place. She is good for a full work day as well!

Maggie Mae loves to play but soft toys don’t stand a chance around this lady! At times she may seem to have endless amounts of energy but she understands that her crate means time to relax and she will calm down very quickly for nap time. Did we mention that she enjoys running beside a skateboard? She loves to sprint so running next to her foster on a skateboard is great fun!

Are you ready to receive endless love from a sweet pooch? Maggie Mae may be your girl!
