ADOPTABLE DOG OF THE MONTH
F | 1 Y | 60lbs l Golden Doodle | Medium-high energy | Needs Structure/Boundaries l Good exposure to dogs | Good Second Dog l Best w Crating l No Kids | Not Cat Tested l Fostered in Hamilton
Introducing MAGGIE! This girl would do great with a person (or possibly family) who has previous experience with dogs, doodles, cows, elephants, donkeys etc etc. In her previous home before she was surrendered, she was known to guard objects of high value which ended up being the reason for her surrender. This means MAGGIE needs an owner who will work through this learned behaviour, but also needs someone willing to work on building trust and boundaries as a whole. MAGGIE needs to learn who is in charge. MAGGIE has had lots of interaction with dogs and loves to play! Continuing to provide opportunities for her to socialize with other furry friends would make this gal super happy and help tire her out for training purposes. She’d totally be down for a playdate, a furry roommate or a regular trips to doggy daycare. MAGGIE currently hangs out with her foster fam living in a house with a yard. A yard is nice, but so are structured walks if that’s your thing. Ideally, MAGGIE’s day involves lots of consistency as she works on her training. She is very nosey (dog joke) and gets into everything which means she can find things to guard if not watched. She needs constant supervision and will need continued work recognizing boundaries in the home so she doesn’t take control of it! Having a medium-high energy level she also enjoys going to the park with her humans. She’s currently working on crate training, which calming exercises may support her in, and has experience being on her own for up to 8 hours. A crate is a great thing for her since she’s mischievous in the home without monitoring! MAGGIE is housebroken, walks well on her leash, and knows basic commands. She’s still learning and will do well with continued supervision, structure and boundaries. She loves cuddles as a reward for a well-balanced relationship. We can’t wait for MAGGIE to find her match Apply to adopt MAGGIE today!
