  Maggie, 7 years Female Pug
Maggie

Update! Maggie is doing great. Her fur is growing in and she's smelling good. Check out her new picture. Her legs are covered with fur and the fur is starting to grow in on her chest. We've got her on the Fromm Duck and Sweet Potato and probiotics and weaning her off the pred. She is the luckiest dog! She loves the Labby boy she's being fostered with and loves sleeping in the bed every night. Is she the one for you? Read on. Maggie is an adorably sweet 7 year old spayed female Pug who came to us in very sad condition. Her skin was inflamed and itchy and reeked of yeast. It was hard to be in the same room as her. Maggie is an owner-relinquished dog whose owner was going through a difficult divorce. Maggie's records show that she has had a long history of food/skin allergies which were sporadically treated due to the owner's financial hardship. At times her owner switched her to a grain-free food, but then reverted back to the cheapest grocery store food -- Maggie paid the price with her health. She has been with us for a few weeks and is doing remarkably better on the grain-free Fromm. We're using a combination of conventional and complementary medicine with her and in just a few weeks she is so happy now. We expect a long, steady recovery and ongoing care under a vet who understands both conventional and alternative medicine. We're not sure if the fur on her chest will ever grow back fully. Maggie was raised with children, but a quiet home is preferred. She deserves to be "the child" from here on out. She is good with cats and dogs, but is not a playmate for them as she pretty much ignores them. She really needs her own person, if possible. She is in foster care, so please fill out an application on our Web site first and we would be happy for you to meet her once we review your application.
