Hi Everyone, I would like you all to meet Maggie. She is 2 1/2 years old. I picked up Maggie last Friday from her surrendering owner. Maggie came from a family that loved her very much. You see Maggie was going to be surrendered last January but they just could not do it. They thought with time she would come out of her shell more. The reason Maggie was surrendered now is because she is very shy and did not want to play with the kids, she would not have anything to do with them. She loved her owner. She would not go outside all by herself to go potty, all she would do is shake and pant. That is exactly what she does here now.

Maggie had never worn a collar or has not been on a leash, so that was a little challenging. When I take her outside she needs a lot of talking to and happy praises. I had to finally put a harness on her because she would do the bucking bronco and try to get out of her collar. Every day gets better.

Maggie has her safe corner in the bedroom on the side of the bed where FD sleeps. I have her crated when I am gone, that was fun too, but now she goes in there when I throw a treat in it. That is her other safe spot.

She will not eat alone, I have to stand and wait for her to finish, but each time I move a little farther away from her. When I get too far she stops and runs back into the bedroom.

According to some of the story her surrendering family would tell me it sounds like she might have been a puppy mill puppy. So we are trying everything possible for her to feel comfortable here.

I will send a update next week to let you know how well she is doing. It is so hard to get pictures of her, so I will work on that.
