Sanctuary dog: Maggie and her son, Calvin, were rescued from Hayward Shelter on 8/20/08. Both were badly neglected. Maggie was never groomed and extremely matted. But after her bath & make-over grooming, she is now beautiful. She is friendly with people she trusts, then gentle, adorable and a sweetheart. Leary of strangers. She did great at her two foster homes and was social, but months later, in a home, she became more fearful of strangers or new people who try to pet her head & learned to growl/nip to protect herself (insecure). She goes up to people for treats, but doesn't want to be petted unless she knows/trust the person. Good on leash and sits for treats. She needs a quiet adult home with routine and to bond to one adult person (kind leader/training experience) only. To protect Maggie, she is now a sanctuary dog with a FFR person whom she is bonded to. With person she bonds to, she is very cooperative, easy-going and well behaved.
