About Maggie

Adoption Fee: $50
Pit Bull mix
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Female

We adopted a pup named Maggie from the Horry County Animal Shelter two years ago and we had issues with her and our then two year old. She was a young girl, two or three if I remember correctly, and she was a jumper and very excitable and would want to play with him and knock him down and scratch him... and we don't think she was being aggressive with him but he pulled her ears and she snapped at him and then I realized that she had not been around young kids. She was a very sweet girl and with the right training and environment I am sure she would be fine. We did not have much history to go on when we adopted her other than her owner surrendered her because she needed to be the only dog in the home. Against my better judgment, I agreed to let my husband rehome her to a guy that lived in Myrtle Beach instead of taking her back to the shelter. I never should have let that happen but I'm equally to blame for the situation because I didn't speak up and advocate harder for her. And now she is in a terrible situation. I received a phone call two days ago from the Greenville South Carolina animal shelter and Maggie is currently there and I am still the registered owner on her microchip. We gave her new owner all of her information and records when we rehomed her and told him to update the chip information. Evidently she has somehow been transported across the state and abandoned. The shelter is keeping her as a stray until March 1st and then she will be eligible for adoption and she is possibly at risk of being euthanized. I'm completely heartbroken over this situation and I'm trying to figure out what options are available. We are moving into a new home this weekend and we have an English bulldog in our family now and we are renting. We are not going to be able to bring another dog in the home. I am not going to leave her at the shelter and risk her being euthanized. I'm willing to make the five hour drive to get her out of there but I am going to need help finding her a foster home, a forever home or a place at a real no-kill shelter I'm praying that you have some ideas of what I can do to help make this right for Maggie. Please feel free to call me at 910-232-2336. Like I mentioned, we are moving this weekend but we are moving in town and I will be able to take the time to talk about the situation and what you think might be a good option for us. Thank you so much for the work you do and for reading my plea for help.
