Maggie - posted 07/11/2013

From Joanna of Simpsonville, SC

Sweet Maggie has been a part of my life now for 5 years, and as I like to tell people, we are in a committed relationship! She is perfect in every way, from her brilliance to her sense of adventure, to her perfected potty training.

I adopted her in June of 2008, and she was 6 months old and named Galaxy. She was so very shy and had potentially been mistreated. In the first months I was very worried about separation anxiety and she ate her way through my couch. She would cower or become aggressive at the sight of strangers. Then we discovered Doggy Day Camp at Pet Smart, and she began to come out of her shell! She was happiest with other dogs, and grew to love the staff at my local PetSmart. It worked perfectly for her, and over the years, she became comfortable with people, dogs, and her newest best friend, a cat who adopted us, named Little.
