About Margaret

Lab mix
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Female

We need to re-home our dog Margaret. Her history is a little lengthy as she is a rescue. In short: -Playful -Silly -Cuddly -Loves toys -Loves cats -Dogs must be SMALLER than her or she has some dominance trouble. She weighs 35 pounds -Absolutely no small children under age 10 -She has VERY MILD mega esophagus which means her esophagus is enlarged and paralyzed and doesn't move food down to her stomach properly. So, her food is blended with water and then the bowl is set on top (third step) of a step ladder. She stands up on the second step and eats. Most dogs with ME are severe and have to use special chairs to stay upright after eating. Not Margaret! She cannot have any solid food or treats. She can have 4 banana slices at a time as a treat, small amounts of peanut butter. She does not tolerate plain water well (it's too thin) so she gets a few ice cubes throughout the day. Her water in her food in the morning is enough for her hydration all day. However since she can't drink extra water she should not be in the heat too long. Long version: Margaret was rescued as a puppy and diagnosed with the ME. She's mild as stated above and super easy to care for. She loves toys, is so silly when playing. She likes to go to the park and chase a ball. She needs lots of squeaky toys, preferably ones that are 'tough' so she doesn't eat them. She LOVES to chase balls. Margaret was attacked by another dog we had three times. Pretty severely. Because of this she does have anxiety and is no longer doing well with our loud toddler. She did bite our toddler which is why we say a home with kids age 10+ ONLY. She is not aggressive any other time and has not been since, but it's obvious the toddler phase is too much. For the record, our toddler interacts appropriately with Margaret. But it's when she's running around and being loud, and not interacting with Margaret, that she gets stressed out. We have baby #2 coming soon so it'll only stress her out even more. This is also why we say small dogs only. She gets anxious around large dogs or dogs her exact size since she was attacked. Despite these things (which are not her fault at all), she's truly an absolutely amazing dog. We know a perfect home exists for her, it just might take some time to find it.
