Maggie is an adorable Golden doodle, a South Dakota girl. She is a retired breeder and ready to enjoy the Golden life-being a mother is hard work! She will celebrate her 7th birthday the end of October.Basic information that is subject to modification:1.Dog friendly and another dog required2.Cat friendly3.Physical fence preferred, but known to cross over 6 ft fences4.Known to like tennis balls-not here, so far5.Walks on line/leash without pulling6.Goes politely through doorways and up and down stairs7. Food connoisseur8.No chewing or destructive behavior9.Crate trained per history. She finds comfort in her open crate. Open roam.10.Submissive urination when intimidated, afraid. That has improved with time and familiarity at foster home.11.Not child-tested yetAfter ten days in foster home, she has become more comfortable and her personality is emerging. Hand-feeding was necessary at first and Fancy Feast for her pills. Homemade chicken soup with our farm raised organic chicken. Maggie started an anti-anxiety pill, Trazodone October 1st and needed Mettronidazole for a week due to gastric upset. The question loomed whether emotional or physical. GI upset resolved, so I am guessing emotional, but also, understandable. Trazodone continues for now.Wow, is she blossoming! From the shy, submissive girl hiding in her crate to hanging out with the gang (three resident dogs and the cats). I always have Maggie on a leash outside with her history including jumping six foot fences-wish I knew more about the circumstances surrounding that gymnastic! Rescue dogs always have some surrounding mystery.Maggie is going through doorways, but waiting to be asked. Up and down the stairs-no problem.She loves riding in the vehicle; she hops right up, but it took two of us to get her out. She seemed glued on.Maggie shakes and she is ambidextrous and looks like she is smiling. "Sit" seems to be coming backMaggie put my female Lab in her place, as dogs do. No struggle for rank, but did need to give Slinky a reminder once. Maggie's confidence is growing. My male Beagle/JR is Maggie's hero, for now and has been showing her the way. It's so comical as Ernie is only 20 pounds and can walk right under her.Maggie is scheduled for her wellness exam on Friday. She had vaccinations updated and heartworm and stool check in South Dakota, but now needs a general inspection and eventually, spay surgery.Maggie will make someone a great pet! I don't see dog parks in her future, but who knows...
