Meet Maggie

Maggie is a sweet chihuahua mix who needs a home with her lifelong companion and friend, Chuey, a 12 year old shih tzu/yorkie. This dynamic duo came to us after his owner passed away and no one in the family was able to care for them. They found themselves surrendered to a shelter but were quickly picked up by a family member who brought them to us. Now, they are processing all the changes in their life in a foster home together. Tyson's Place Animal Rescue's mission is to assist terminally ill people with finding new families for their pets, including after the owner has passed away. They are amazing dogs, and Maggie has yet to meet a person he doesn't like - she is very friendly with people and will go up to strangers to be pet. His foster mom describes both dogs as "super sweet, calm, quiet, well behaved, loving dogs. They definitely enjoy being around each other but are also independent and respectful of each other." The dogs are even known to drink out of the same water bowl at the same time. They are housebroken and walk well on a leash and do well with baths, grooming, and brushing. Maggie is a chihuahua mix so she has a thicker coat and does well with frequent brushing. She has this adorable habit of backing up to you so you pet her, just silently asking for attention.

Like many chihuahuas, Maggie has luxating patellas (knee caps that get out of place) in her back legs and this, along with being a bit overweight and low to the ground, makes stairs difficult for her. She may be able to tackle a few at a time, but it is a work in progress. Getting her to drop a few pounds is a good goal to help her feel more comfortable and to be nicer on her joints. They would do best in a home that is quieter and doesn't have a lot of commotion and gives them their own safe space to chill out.

Both dogs have been together since they were puppies, and Maggie seems to rely on Chuey for her confidence. We are only considering applications at this point for adopters that want both dogs. The family of owner has made it clear that the dogs belong together. More information about Chuey here: https://www.petfinder.com/dog/chuey-45977211/mi/jamestown/tysons-place-animal-rescue-mi973/

Though they are 12, they are in good health and are current on vaccinations, heart worm test and prevention, flea topical, microchips, and full blood work.
