Maggie has an approved home and will be adopted once we have completed treating her eye infections, performing entropion surgery and dental work for serious issues with her mouth.

New arrival Maggie is doing great in her foster home.  She is getting along famously with all of the other dogs, and is an all around wonderful newf with a great temperament.  Great with animals, people, kids, you name it, Maggie is a real gem!

This 4 year old gal knows basic commands, and other than needing work on her leash manners she is pretty easy going.

Maggie arrived with a badly infected eye which we are currently treating.  She has a condition called dry eye which will require daily eye drops costing approximately $60/month.   We are in the process of clearing up her infections and getting the inflammation in her eyes under control.

Because this condition was not correctly treated previously she has suffered some permanent damage to her eyes and her vision has been impacted.  We will have a better idea of the extent of the damage once her infection is cleared.  She gets around fine and compensates for her decreased vision very well. 

Eye condition on intake

We will be bringing Maggie up to date on vaccines, and she has already been spayed.  She will be available for adoption once her eye infection is resolved.  She is being fostered in eastern ON and her approved family will be required to pick her up in person.  To be considered for adopting Maggie please complete the adoption application found in the forms section of our site.  An adoption donation of $500 will apply.
