This little peanut is a former mill momma and she had some medical challenges that she has finally worked through. Magpie will have to take a heart pill every day, but you would never know it from her sassy little prance.  Magpie is ready to find her forever home. She likes to play with her squeaky toys in between taking naps and Magpie knows exactly where the treat jar is. She can be a little shy, which is expected after her hard life. Once she is comfortable, though, Magpie is the life of the party. She has been practicing walking on a leash, is good in the car, and continues to blossom every day. Magpie is full of love and likes to snuggle as well as run around with her fur-siblings. Magpie will need a fence and a male dog in her forever home.

Miss Magpie is a total sweetie! Her foster mom reports that she was very scared when she arrived with 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. Magpie started out slow by stealing some socks, but 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 that she has a tail and is now determined to catch it. Magpie has been great with people and children. She is housebroken, crate trained, good on leash, and she rides great in the car. Magpie needs a little time to get to know new dogs, but would love an easy going companion for a best friend.

We have discovered that Magpie was born with a heart defect, but you would never know it. She shows no symptoms with a daily heart medication. Magpie 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.
