Description:
Maggie is ready to find her forever home! This lovable, easygoing, and special girl is sure to bring immense joy to her lucky family! 

Maggie has cerebellar abiotrophy, a genetic neurological disease affecting balance and coordination. While Maggie is a bit wobbly on her feet, she doesnt seem to notice! She is a happy and enthusiastic pup who loves life! Because of her instability, she would do best without a lot of stairs and a level yard.

Mags is treat motivated, potty trained, and does anything her foster mom asks. She is such a well behaved lady and has recently discovered the joy of playing with toys! She gets so excited when she gets a new toy, and her snuggle sessions with her teddy bear are precious. Maggie loves accompanying her foster to work and spends her days going around the office saying hi to everyone. Car rides are also a favorite! 

This lovely girl adores going on walks and is a pleasure on leash. Although she cant walk long distances, she loves her strolls and taking time to smell the roses. 

Maggie is good with other dogs, but can become insecure if she stumbles or falls so its important to give her space and understanding. A gentle canine companion would be a great fit for her, or she would also be happy as a solo pup. Maggie did well meeting a kitty, so could be able to go to a home with cats with proper introductions. 

Maggie is a pit bull type dog and weighs in at 70 pounds. While cerebellar abiotrophy is progressive, there is a wide range in the terms of the progression of the disease. Since Maggie is 4 years old already and has only comparatively mild neurological signs, this indicates Maggies disease will hopefully continue to only slowly progress. A neurology recheck is recommended every six months to monitor.

Maggie is an extraordinary dog who deserves a loving forever home where she can be cherished for the incredible companion she is! If interested in adopting Maggie, please fill out an application at https://www.forgottendogsrescue.com/adoption-application
