Meet Maggie 3

Please note that at this time we are not able to respond to every application. It is crucial that you read the dog's bio to make sure that she is a match before you apply. If she is a match, we will respond within 48 hrs.
Maggie is a little female long haired chihuahua/doxie maybe spaniel mix who was dropped off at the shelter because her family did not want the responsibility of taking care of her. She is 9 yrs old and around 8 lbs she does not take up much room at all. Maggie is slow to trust however if you take time to get to know her she is sweet, loves being a lap dog and getting belly rubs and asks to be picked up and carried. She is very loyal and bonds quickly and follows her person around the house all the time. She loves attention and treats but she is is food/treat possessive and resource guards so a very experience home with no dominant dogs would be best. Maggie is also fear aggressive at times, when she knows she is in trouble or when you reach for her too quickly she will bite, so her owner has to be careful and familiar with fearful dogs and be ready for continuous training. We know she can be amazing in the right home as she has come such a long way in terms of trust, but she needs that dedicated adopter to help her stay on track. No children for this pup. While she is housetrained she does act out at times with inappropriate urination, so again lots of stability would be best for her.
Most of our dogs are not available to an out of the area adoption because of difficulty to follow up. If you do not live within a 2 hr drive of Orange County, please email us before applying to see if the dog you are interested is may be a candidate for long distance adoption.
If you are interested in adopting one of our rescues, please visit our main website for adoption procedures at www.pupsandpals.net and then fill out our application. Please note that we are all volunteers so it may take up to 3 days to process your application, but you will hear back from us.
We do not have a shelter so individual appointments must be made to meet the pet you are interested in. Our pets are fostered/boarded all over LA and Orange County.
This pet is altered, vaccinated, microchipped, and has had a brief temperament evaluation to help us determine what type of a home he/she would thrive in. Please note that we put lots of time and effort to make sure our pets are ready to be someone's perfect pet before they go home.... and to make sure that we will have the best possible match for this pet we do require an : application, interview, adoption fee and in some case a home check.

PLEASE DO NOT call or email to see if a pet is available. We update our pages daily so if he/she is pictured here in the available dogs section, we are accepting applications at this time.
