Miss Maggie is ready to enjoy the retired life. She is an eight-year-old purebred Golden girl, a retired breeding mamma who is looking to spend her best years yet soaking up all the affection she can find. This composed red beauty immediately stole our hearts. She was slower to offer hers, curious but hesitant to all the changes after almost 9 years of living the breeding lifestyle. As she comes out of her shell, we are so impressed by her trusting nature, curiosity, and affection. She gets along great with our resident pups, enjoys her crate, and walks nicely on a leash. She is being treated for an ear infection and intestinal parasites, and will be having two mammary tumors removed during her spay. As her playful side comes out, she shows us that she has a youthful resilience, and that at 8 years old, her life is just getting started! This sweet girl will continue to come out of her shell, so be sure to check for updates!!

Maggie has made huge strides over the last couple of weeks.  Her personality is really shining through and we are so excited to tell you more about this amazing girl.  First and foremost, she is so loving.  She will grab your heart from the moment you meet her!  She has plenty of spunk for a lady of a certain age (she just celebrated her ninth birthday with us but you would never guess that!!), yet is ready to snuggle right in when the time comes.  She is an all-around great dog.

Maggie continues to be so brave, especially when the three resident dogs lead the way.  She now enjoys spending time with the family, playing with tennis balls, cuddling, and loves exploring outside.  She does great walking on a leash, too!  These are all great accomplishments for a pup who has lived her whole life in a world without a whole lot of variety.  She continues to amaze us.

The vet had great things to say about Maggie, too!  Her spay went well and they also removed a mammary tumor, which was malignant but was completely removed so that was great to hear!  Maggie does well with going potty outside, but we have had a handful of accidents with this transition so we are being diligent about going out regularly and that has done the trick!

We did a child test with a ten year old recently and that went well.  Maggie has loved everyone she has met thus far!  She loves soaking up the attention and just when you think the petting is done, she gives your hand a gentle nudge to ask for a bit more.  She truly is a Golden.
