Maggie is a 2 ½ year old, 50 lb., spayed female yellow Labrador retriever. Maggie is a sweet, affectionate, high-energy little girl who loves people like crazy! There is nothing she wants more than to be in physical contact with her humans. However, Maggie has too much energy and not enough confidence to become a service dog. Maggie can be noise sensitive and worried in busy and chaotic environments.
Maggie requires significant daily exercise. She needs a family with multiple people who are willing to both walk her and take her out to play ball several times a day. After being petted, playing ball is the thing that Maggie loves most in the world, so providing exercise to Maggie is actually very easy. Given adequate exercise, Maggie is capable of settling down indoors – but without enough exercise, you will both be miserable!
Although our foremost concern for Maggie is to find her a loving home which can meet her needs, priority will be given to a military, veteran, or first-responder family who is seeking a Skilled Home Companion, or to a person who is willing to pursue Therapy Dog work with Maggie. Maggie has basic skills that could aid a person with physical limitations. Her very physical and affectionate nature is also ideal for a person seeking emotional support.
