Reason for being in rescue: Maggie Molly was found as a stray and landed at the animal shelter. CPR pulled her from the local shelter. Maggie Molly was adopted in early 2020 and returned to rescue. She needs a very active home.
Special Needs: none noted
What kind of home would be best for me: Maggie Molly is a sweet, happy young hound mix (best guess is basset, dachshund, or beagle) who would thrive in a female-centric environment that can shape her energy and give her lots of exercise. Don't let those short legs fool you. She would be an awesome walking and hiking partner. She's solid and she is dependable. Maggie Molly must go to a home with experienced dog owners - no exceptions.
Maggie Molly is VERY cautious with men. She is timid when meeting men and will nip at your ankles if you approach her too quickly. This is a fear response. We do not know why she is this way, but we are doing our best to help her overcome her fears. At this time, we are only adopting Maggie Molly out to a female-only household.
No cats please! True to her hunting dog heritage, Maggie Molly has decided that cats are things to be chased. She needs to be in a cat free home.
What is my personality like: Maggie Molly enjoys other dogs and often romps with the big dogs as well as the small dogs. She would love to be in a big, happy kitchen, family milling around, kids at the table doing homework and Maggie with a bone or toy, in the middle of it all. She loves to run and play and loves to be with her people. She is not "clingy." She does not whine for constant attention. She wants to simply be in the middle.
How do I act when I first meet new people: Barks a hello and happily accepts a treat.
Tips and Tidbits: We are estimating Maggie at about 2 years old with a birth date of about 8/1/17. She is hoping to go home with her new family this year, the family that will care about where she is and makes sure that she is always where her heart is - with you.
House trained: Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained. A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.
Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.
Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.
