Foster Home needed for Maggie

Maggie is one of our recent intakes.... another gorgeous big black dog with a shiny, velvet coat! She's not yet up on our website but will be soon. She is currently being fostered at one of our doggie daycare partners, Pampered Pooch Playground. Although they are without a doubt pampering her, we would like to move her into a foster home (this enables us to then bring in and save yet another dog!) If you would like to learn more about fostering with Pet Haven be sure to email and sign up for our new volunteer orientation this coming Saturday. Here's what one of the trainers at Pampered Pooch has to say about Maggie:

"Maggie is fabulous with the other dogs big and small, usually plays for a little while in the morning and rests for the rest of the day. She really enjoys lounging on a nice soft bed or the couch and just has a soft and relaxed way about her. She is a little uneasy about new situations or places (even new rooms in our building she hasn't explored, once she explores
she is fine), just has a lowered body posture, but is very willing to please and trusts that you are putting her in a safe situation and will come with you willingly.

She is food motivated, and seems to just want to please you. She knows how to sit and shake and has the "puppy eyes" when she looks up at you. She is very laid back and tolerant of all of the dogs and loves attention and laying on a comfy bed. We leave a blanket in her kennel at night and she doesn't destroy it so I don't think she is too stressed being left alone (no sep. anxiety from what we can tell). I think she would be an all around sweet and very easy dog to have around. She is definitely one that I would take home if I could, just very sweet and easy to become attached to."

A foster buddy went to Pampered Pooch and took Maggie for an outing .. here's what she had to say about Maggie: "I transported her and she was a perfect lady. Pulled, but not too hard, rode great in the car with her nose hanging out the window. Very sweet."
