Margo -- In Maine!
Posted November 2020
How beautiful is this petite girl? Margo will be one year old on Nov 26th so she won’t get much bigger at all, and she is about 40 lbs of energy and cuteness – check out those ears! This girl could easily be nicknamed the Energizer Bunny because she hardly stops moving! She LOVES other dogs but she can be a little too much for some dogs and is still learning how to listen to their cues. If she had a canine buddy that could match her play style, however, she would LOVE it. Margo is listed as a shepherd mix but we’d love to know her mix because it’s a mystery – she has some terrier qualities and some hound qualities too.
Margo was adopted from a southern shelter by an older person but she was given up because she was too “rambunctious” for that owner and it was hard for the person to give her enough exercise. Margo loves doggy day care and she loves toys. She is a big chewer so she will need a supply of tough toys. We think Margo will be too much for small children but older children who can tire her out with a ball, a frisbie and a run would be perfect. She loves the fenced yard at her foster home and tears around having a blast.
Margo has a sensitive side for sure; she had a little bit of a tough time adjusting to all the changes from leaving her southern home to transport to foster here, but once she settled into a home environment she is showing her spunky side. She has had some training in the past and is housetrained, crate trained and sits on command like a champ. She does really well in her crate at night and when the humans are away but would love a family who is home a lot to help her continue to learn and work on her ball skills. She might be a fantastic agility or frisbie dog!
Are you interested in meeting Margo or any of our sweet pups? Please fill out the adoption application.
Please note: we do not have a physical facility where the dogs are housed - they are cared for in our wonderful foster network throughout New England. It is our expectation that, once approved, a potential family will meet the dog(s) in the foster setting where they are feeling safe and loved.
