Meet Maggie

Maggie is a wonderful, active, happy puppy. She is in need of her forever home now. Born with a detached retina, she has always been blind in her left eye. Last month out of necessity the vet removed the eye and stitched up her eyelid on that side. As she was born without sight on that side she has always adapted to life without it. She occasionally bumps into things but mostly (as she has no peripheral vision) it's because you've moved onto her blind side, rather than her just barging into things in error. She is fully recovered from the op and there is no further treatment needed since getting the all clear from the vets. She needs ongoing training, but can sit very nicely for dinner, when asked etc She is exuberant on lead as you'd expect from a large breed puppy but with the correct handling she is manageable and will grow into a much loved adorable relaxed walker. Her coat is almost white (except after having fun in the dirt with my other fosters) and so far I haven't heard her bark much. She is very relaxed and happy around other dogs of all sizes and also around children ( I have 3 between 9-16). I would recommend, due to her vision issue, that she be rehomed to a family with older children as she may accidently knock littlies over unintentionally. So if you feel you can offer her a happy, loving environment please give us a call to arrange to meet her. You'll fall in love with this goofy bundle of white fluff when you see her.

Maggie was adopted on 01 May 2011 after 1 week in foster care
