Older couple with a golden retriever


February 2, 2020 – Maggie came to AGB because she needed a family who had time to spend with her. Her new mom and dad have been waiting for a dog like her since their beloved AGB alum Layla crossed the rainbow bridge about a year ago. Maggie is settling in nicely in Mississippi and goes for walks twice a day. Her mom says that Maggie is very chill and easy to walk and that she has loved every person and every dog she has met. Happy people and happy dog!

Original Adoption Post

“Wake up, Maggie, I think I got something to say to you …” Remember that old Rod Stewart song? Oh, dear, it wasn’t great news first hearing it but my previous family surrendered me so I could find a family that had more time to give me the attention I crave. They really want the best for me. Hello, I’m Maggie – the ninth one at AGB – a pretty, cream colored Golden girl that is 6 years old. I weigh 85 pounds; I’m vaccinated, spayed, and about to be microchipped. I’ve been an outside dog for a while, although I am crate trained to sleep inside. I would so love a special someone or a family that would welcome me and teach me anything I need to know to be an inside, companion dog. Golden Retrievers don’t like to be without their people; we need that time and attention or we might show unwelcome behaviors like being destructive when we’re alone too much. I am friendly and like everybody – strangers, other dogs, kids and cats. I like to go running and I like car rides. You can see I have a really pretty face and a sweet smile. I hope the next lyric I hear from that song is somebody singing “You stole my heart” when my new family takes me home.
