Meet MAGGIE

LOCATION: SANCTUARY IN WILLITS, CA

**2/18/19 FOSTER NOTES:
Meet Maggie. Born in a backyard and fed by people throwing food over a fence to her and her parents, this little girl had none of the training and social interaction so important to a puppy for normal development. She had no human contact and so is emotionally unavailable to people. She is fostered with 2 adults and 3 dogs and has bonded with a one year old Doberman female who she follows everywhere. She has learned to play with the dogs in the house and is starting to play with toys. She will come when called but will not get close; on occasion she will take food handed to her. She is food motivated but struggles to overcome her fear of people even for that. She will go outside with the other dogs but has not learned to go potty there. She will occasionally use pads but is not remotely house trained. To take her out on leash, she must be caught and then it is a struggle. Here, we use a harness and a slip lead for a backup because were she to get away we might not get her back. We have had her for about a month and progress has been slow. Maggie is not keen on small dogs so should be in a home with dogs her own size.**
2/28/19 FOSTER NOTE Maggie continues to inch along socially and it should be pointed out that even with all her fear, she does not growl or snap. She is also very beautiful.


Thank you for considering adoption of a Milo Foundation Sanctuary dog. Our Sanctuary is where our rescued dogs who have had difficulty in a home in the past, have behavioral issues, or too much energy, or for some, aggression issues with other dogs, or intense stranger danger that make them more difficult to safely and happily live in urban environments. These are not beginner dogs or for the most part nor are they for families with children. IF you are looking for an easy dog to add to your family, we suggest looking at the dogs at our Adoption Center, Milo Pt Richmond. BUT, if you can offer a safe and nurturing home to a dog with some behavioral "quirks" please do send an application today. Thank you.
