Maggie D2246

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 and will growl & nip. 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/trusts the person. Good on leash and sits for treats.

To protect Maggie, she is now a sanctuary dog with an FFR person whom she is bonded to. With person she bonds to she is very cooperative, easy-going and well behaved.

**Note: Adoption in SF Bay Area Only**
