Maggie is Pup of the Week!

“Ohana means family. Family means nobody gets left behind or forgotten.”

Maggie has a special place in ACR’s hearts. She was previously adopted from us as a puppy, but 3 years later and in a different state, Maggie found herself homeless after her former adopter’s living arrangements changed. Some wonderful friends of ACR flew Maggie back to Athens, where her ACR family welcomed her back and reminded Maggie that she will always have us as family.  

Maggie is a ~3 year old tripod, and weighs around 60 pounds. She has shown us that she has great memory, as Maggie still remembers many of the things she learned during her stay with us as a puppy! She is potty trained, and signals by whining near the door to let you know that she has to go outside. Maggie is also kennel trained, but does need some treats to encourage her to go into her kennel. However, Maggie doesn’t need to be kenneled, as she will just nap the day away if left alone in a room while Foster Mom is gone. Besides good house manners, Maggie also has great leash manners and is very treat motivated, which makes her easier to train!

Maggie is currently working on refreshing her canine social skills, as she was previously the only dog in her home. She does fine with low-key dogs and those who respect her space. However, she’s not good with cats. Ultimately though, Maggie just loves her people. No matter how long it’s been since she’s seen you, Maggie will wiggle her little booty out of excitement when she sees you! Maggie definitely loves being where her people are, but is content to self entertain with a toy or, more likely, a nap nearby.

As you might have guessed, Maggie doesn’t require a lot of exercise to keep her content. She would be happy with a few short walks throughout the day, or a small game of fetch inside the house. Besides that, you’ll find her lounging around or trying to snuggle up next to you.
