Miss Magpie is a total sweetie! Her foster mom reports that she was very scared when she arrived to AABR, but a few weeks of good living have done her well. Her fearful stance has turned into a proud prance around the yard. She loves her four legged siblings and has discovered that toys are pretty awesome. She started out slow by stealing some socks, then realized that toys were actually meant to be played with. Her personality is blooming and she shows both a lovable side as well as a silly boxer side. She now even helps herself to the backyard strawberry plant when she wants a sweet treat!
Last week Magpie learned she has a tail and is now determined to catch it. Mags has been great with people and children, is housebroken, crate trained, good on leash and in the car. She needs a little time to get to know new dogs but would love an easy going for a best friend.
We have found out that Magpie was born with a heart defect but you would never know it due to her daily heart medication. She does have an appointment to have a 24-hour heart monitor test to ensure we are doing everything we can for this wonderful girl.
If you are looking for a charming little lady who gives soft kisses, likes to cuddle in the morning, surprise you with some zoomies and may steal your socks…talk to your coordinator about Magpie.
Please welcome Magpie to rescue. Magpie was used for the sole purpose of breeding and making money for the miller. She won her freedom when she wasn’t having as many puppies as she did when she was younger. Magpie has many scars covering her body, which tells a very sad story of a life of horror. She is begining to trust humans and give kisses, despite her past. Magpie will need a home with a fenced in yard and another male dog to help give her some much needed cofidence. There will be more to come on this sweet soul as she continues to learn what life is like outside of the confines of a mill.
