We try our best to get it right the first time, but sometimes dogs are returned to our care for various reasons. Maggie was adopted in February 2013 and was returned to Kiko in August 2017. She’s a mix of Wheaten Terrier and Poodle weighing 35 pounds, and will be 8 in November. Maggie originally came to us in 2013 following the birth of a baby.
An important factor towards ensuring a successful adoption is the dog’s living environment, which includes everything from time spent with the dog, how much exercise the dog is getting, and the general energy level. Maggie is currently in a foster home with a young working couple in a semi-rural setting who provide her with regular daily walks of moderate length, whereas her previous home was in a busy urban setting with significantly less exercise. Maggie was reactive towards things like skateboards, so walks were likely avoided because of this.
Although she is being fostered with another dog, Maggie can be selective with other dogs, so would probably do best as an only pet. A more quiet suburban or semi-rural setting as well as providing her with regular daily walks, not just a backyard to run around in by herself, will be important criteria. While a yard is nice, Maggie does not like to be put outside alone. She is very affectionate and seems to prefer women. Maggie is calm and quiet in the house, and likes to be close to her people. While she may be appealing to many due to her size and minimal shedding, Maggie will require an experienced adopter in a calm environment without young children. At a recent adoption event at Mon Ami, Maggie was not reactive towards the other dogs, and allowed herself to be petted by strangers while she sat quietly next to her foster without demonstrating any negative behaviour.
