Maggie, the Kindest Dog


Maggie is from Canada, now living in Antibes. She was found aged two tied to a tree, emaciated and it was obvious she'd recently had a litter of pups. She was taken to a shelter and was soon given her forever home by a great couple. She's now 7 years old.

Maggie is one of the kindest, gentlest dogs I've had the pleasure of meeting. Isn't it humbling how dogs that have been so badly treated give us nothing but love?

We should always go to a shelter/refuge for a dog - there are far too many, just like Maggie, waiting for a home. And they give far more back than we give them.

It must be the name...our Maggi is the gentlest, sweetest dog in the USA. We got her when she was a frisky one year old, and learned that we were her third owners. We never have been able to figure out how anyone could have given her away. Now at age ten we've had not one moment of regret, except that she is probably the most expensive dog we've owned...vet bills have been enormous over the years. But, no regrets. Yes, everyone should visit a shelter to get one of these wonder dogs!! Kisses and hugs for this Maggie!

You have captured Maggie's spirit beautifully! And I agree with you - rescue dogs are the BEST! All of my dogs have been rescues with one exception, my Buffy, who was a gift. Here in the States, there is a wonderful organization to help chained and neglected dogs called Dogs Deserve Better. They do wonderful work.

Maggie has such a sweet loving face, you can see what a love she is. My shelter dogs have been wonderful, they seem to appreciate a second chance.

I agree with Cathy too many dogs do deserve better. Its always nice to meet a gentle soul in both man and dog.
