Meet An Adoptable Dog
Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat)
Weight: 46 lb
Height: 24 in
Estimated Birthdate: 4/28/2019
Fence Needed: Yes
Reason for being in rescue: Maguire and Patches were left on our property. Foster location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC
Special Needs: Maguire has a skin condition similar to eczema in humans which is called demodectic mange. Demodex is present on all dogs, but can flare out of control. Oral flea medications such as Bravecto or NexGuard are commonly used, your veterinarian can provide further insight. For more information check out this resource.
What kind of home would be best for me: Maguire needs a home with an experienced dog owner and another dog in the home to help him learn! Maguire needs an active family that will take him on trips. Maguire likes to be outside and must have a fenced-in yard to play in. We have not tested him with kids yet, but a home with smaller kids would not be best. Maguire is big puppy and needs older kids to run and play with. Maguire needs someone who can show him basic commands and he will for sure need some training.
What is my personality like: Maguire, despite his tough past, is all puppy love. He wants to be with you at all times and will whine if he can't be. He is all puppy energy and needs help learning some manners. Maguire loves attention and will playfully mouth at your hands to get it. Maguire does not like to be crated, he will whine and use puppy eyes in attempt for you to let him out. Maguire's favorite game is fetch, throw a small or large ball - he's on it, throw toys - he's on it. He is a retriever through and through.
How do I act when I first meet new people: Maguire greets everyone with a big enthusiastic smile and is ready for your attention.
Tips and Tidbits: Estimated birthday is 4/28/19. Maguire and his brother, Patches, were left overnight in our fields. When dogs are abandoned in our fields, we move forward with their care. However, later in the day, we discovered a letter in our mailbox. The owner left a heart-wrenching letter explaining how they could no longer care for them and was desperate for a solution. It was clear to us, both dogs were very loved by their owner.
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.
