"Hey Mags! Come meet my friends!"
"Hey Maggie May! Pretty girl!"
Miss Maggie is a 3 year old Great Pyreneees who has had a difficult start to her life. When she was a puppy in Tennessee, she jumped out of an open moving van on a highway (WHAT were her owners thinking????), resulting in the loss of one of her hind legs. She was surrendered to a 3 day kill shelter and thankfully saved by Big Fluffy Dog Rescue, who paid for her amputation and care. Once healed, she was adopted by a family in California, where she lived for 2 years. Unfortunately the family was unable to care for her and she was surrendered once again back to BFD Rescue and sent to a foster family in Connecticut. This is where she lived, with a wonderful woman for a month... until....
Mr. Vintage Moon and I have been discussing adding to our "Wild Kingdom" and occassionally look at the rescue sites online. One recent evening I came across the sweetest picture of a furry white baby and knew instantly that this was the one for us. Within the week we had her secured in our car for the (final!!!) trip home.
We are still in the "getting to know you" stage... Sophie and Moose have been very accepting of their new sister (and she of them) but she seems to be settling in to her forever home even better than we could have hoped for. A sweeter dog you will never find. A snuggler and becoming a bit of a ham. One perfect fit.
If you find you have room in your heart, home and life - please consider adopting a new lifelong friend from your local rescue league. There are literally hundreds of thousands of wonderful dogs and cats looking for a safe and secure home. The love you will get in return will be priceless.
