Maggie just loves to have her belly rubbed, almost as much as she loves to go for walks. And since she is a little more “big-boned” than we’d like her to be, walks are a great thing to help thin her down a bit. This sweet girl has had a bit of a sad life. In her young life she has already been abandoned at least twice. She came into the pound back in 2009 as a stray, got adopted, but then returned back to the same pound at the beginning of this year. Her last owners stated they couldn’t take care of her anymore. While this is very sad, thankfully it hasn’t affected this sweet girl’s demeanor. She is a loving, sweet gal who just wants to be loved.
