At A Glance
Marigold has arrived in the US from Istanbul, Turkey. She looks like a Golden/Lab mix. She is a sweetheart! She had been found running the streets by some very caring and dedicated rescuers in Turkey. Before coming to MN, she was vaccinated and spayed. It is clear she had a litter at some point in her young life. Maggie met the other 5 dogs that were here without any issues. She was a bit overwhelmed at first and who wouldn't be? She is also very loving with any human that appears--wanting pets and just to be near.
In terms of her health, she had a bit of diarrhea in the transition to a healthy dog food but that has cleared up. She tested positive for Ehrlichia which is a common tick borne disease in Turkey. All her lab work was normal and she is on an antibiotic that will clear it up. She won't have any long lasting health issues from this. Despite all of the changes in her life, Maggie is loving and playful. She adores the 5 month old puppy we are sitting--playing and correcting her very gently. She sleeps quietly all night. She is house trained. Maggie was looking for food when she first arrived. Understandable, given her need to find it most of her life. She found some here on the counters. But we have not had any issues with that since the first few days. And she doesn't try to steal it from the other dogs bowls. She is very respectful.
