Adoptable dog’s name: Maggie
Location (city, state) of adoptable pet: St Louis, MO
Age of adoptable dog: 2 years
Breed: Australian Shepherd
What makes this dog special: Maggie is the textbook definition of the Aussie breed: affectionate, loyal and smart, all wrapped up in a gorgeous blue merle, blue-eyed body. Maggie is housebroken, crate trained, leash trained with a head collar, and knows basic obedience. She learns quickly. She is not excessively active but still loves playtime – mainly because it’s interaction with you! More images at www.flickr.com/photos/lthomson/sets/72157631662835729/
What kind of household would be best for this dog?: Maggie does not demonstrate a lot of herding behaviors and loves attention from almost anyone she meets. Once she meets you, her wiggle-butt never stops. Maggie is fine with other dogs and older kids (may be too affectionate for the younger ones). She is quickly becoming a favorite at the dog park. Maggie has not been introduced to cats.
