About Maggie of Monroe

Adoption Fee: $200
Age: Adult
Sex: Female

Date into Rescue: 07/17/2017 Reason for being in rescue: Found as a stray Foster location: close to Waxhaw, NC Special Needs? collasping treachea, luxating patellas, hard of hearing, strict diet requirements, dental needs Weight: 8 lbs Height: 8' at the shoulder Adoption Fee: $200 Fence needed? No, but Maggie does like to explore from time to time and would enjoy a fence What kind of home would be best for me? This beautiful little senior girl needs a quiet home with someone who is home most of the time. Maggie needs a retirement home with resources to care for her. What is my personality like? Typical Yorkshire Terrier....cute, sweet, somewhat bossy, can be be snippy, especially if she is bothered while resting How do I act when I first meet new people? usually friendly More tips and tidbits: Maggie was picked up as a stray and when animal control called the number associated with her microchip, they never called back. The shelter tried several times. When Carolina Poodle Rescue picked up Maggie from the shelter, she slept for the next several days...she was exhausted. Her teeth were in terrible shape and she was recovering from being infested with fleas. She had several areas of hair loss. After being on antibotics to help with infection in her mouth, she had a dental and eight teeth were removed. It is recommended her teeth/mouth be rechecked in six months, but she seems to be doing fine. Maggie also has a bad cough from a collapsing trachea. If you are not familiar with this condition, you may want to do research. Maggie also has luxating patellas and therefore, will not be able to walk long distances. Every so often, Maggie may chose to stroll around the yard but usually she goes out to do her business and then comes back inside. She may need pain medication to help with this condition as she ages. We are also seeing signs of Maggie being deaf. Maggie's eyes will need drops from time to time due to allergies. It is also very important to keep Maggie on a strict diet. Any variation will upset her stomach. She is currently eating Zignature Essential and/or Zignature Kangaroo. She has no problems as long as her diet is consistent. This seems to be typical with the breed. Maggie is a BEAUTIFUL little yorkie and LOVES to be cuddled. Her coat continues to improve. One of her favorite things is jumping into a basket of clothes freshly out of the dryer. She is very persistent bout getting into the basket, which is so cute. She also loves to be held like a baby while rubbing her belly. She begs for you to continue when you stop rubbing her. She also loves to sit in the window seat and bark. Maggie does ok with other small dogs but can be bossy and nip at them if they bother her. This usually happens when Maggie is settled into a spot resting or sleeping. She can exist with larger dogs, but really does not care for them. In her foster home, she has lived with two larger german shepherds who are use to bossy little dogs and choose to ignore them. Maggie currently sleeps between the pillows of her foster dad and mom and she loves it. She has her little blanket and she goes straight to her little spot every night.. She will need a home where she can continue to be kept warm and cuddled during the night. House trained? Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained. A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule. Maggie does very well with house training in our home. She will go to the door if she needs to go out and/or bark to get your attention. My age: estimated to be around 9 years old
