In shelter Dog

Des Moines, IA, 50315
Pet name:
German Shepherd Dog
Brown / Chocolate
Um…hi…..I am…..Maggie….
I was brought to Apollo after I was being surrendered to a shelter near the Rio Grande to be euthanized. A Good Samaritan stepped in to save me and asked for Apollo Support & Rescue’s help.  Apollo took me to the vet and they found out that I was shot multiple times with a shotgun. I have recovered pretty well, but I do have permanent nerve damage in my back end which causes incontinence of the bladder and bowels ( I want to hold my pee and poop but my body just doesnt let me). I am a very sweet girl, who is super dog friendly, playful, but also gentle. I get along with cats, only because they scare me. I am a volunteer favorite at the rescue and I often requests tummy rubs! Right now, I am in a foster home with seven other dogs and three cats.  It’s crazy here!!  It is a little much for me, I am shy, submissive and I prefer you to give me all your attention.  I am not able to go on long walks, my hips start hurting and it looks like I am doing the pee-pee dance.  I tend to hold a leg up to release the pressure of my legs, but I am very loving, timid, and I am scared you are going to be angry with me.  I almost lost my life twice and I just want a loving home to call my own. Hit me up! She was born in March 2021 and is located in a foster home.

FindpetTM is a Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry for the AAHA Universal Pet Microchip Lookup Tool. AAHA provides an internet-based application that enables veterinarians, humane organizations, pet owners or other persons to search various Pet Recovery Service registries and identify those registries on which a particular microchip is registered. AAHA is not affiliated or involved with any specific microchip registry and has no relationship, financial or otherwise, with this Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry ("Registry"). This Registry has given AAHA permission to search the Registry's database in order to assist pet owners in being reunited with their pets. AAHA does not maintain a database of microchips of its own. It only links to registries such as this one. The AAHA Universal Microchip Lookup Tool only searches the databases of companies that elect to participate in the program.
