Maggie: ~11-year-old female yellow Lab 92-lb spayed

Background: Maggie was surrendered to the Solano County Animal Services in Fairfield by her long-time owner because he could no longer care for her. She is 18-years-old according to her previous owner – huh! She sure does NOT look or act that old. Surrendering owner stated: “Owned for 15 years. Not previously adopted. Is spayed and chipped. Lives inside, has access to the outside. Is house trained. Has never escaped from the yard. Not exposed to cats or other dogs. Does ok around strangers. Not exposed to children. Has not been to a vet recently.”

What Maggie’s foster says: Maggie is adorable. A total sweetheart. She sleeps all night in a dog bed in the bedroom. She snores and dog "purrs" in contentment during sleep and getting loving pets. Maggie is a dog who has been loved during her life and looks to do her best to please you. Walks well on leash. Has met neighbor dogs and children without problem. Maggie enjoys her foster dog sister and has noticed her foster-dog-savvy cat sister without incident (will grumble but stop upon command “leave it”).

What Maggie’s Rescue Rep says: 92-lbs – big dog! She trots around like a middle-aged dog. Very affectionate and friendly. Not so interested in toys. Soft mouth. No food guarding. Met two other dogs; did just fine. Great walker on leash. Just wants to be next to you. She is enjoying hanging out with her foster’s dog. We refuse to believe that Maggie is 18 years old – we believe she is more like 15 years old. Maggie says she is not a day over 12.

Update: During our research of Maggie’s existing microchip, we discovered that her previous owner recorded that she was born in September 2009… which makes Maggie eleven years old – now that makes sense.

Medical: Coat is in great shape. Ears look fine. Teeth look remarkably good. Has only half of a tail. Two lumps on her backside. She is recovering from a urinary tract infection. Maybe a few pounds overweight. We will get Maggie to our vet soonest.

Maggie is currently located in: Novato.

Our volunteers donate their personal time & phones so please only call during reasonable hours (8am - 8pm). The Rescue Rep identified in the dog posting is the only person with information about the dog - please only contact the designated volunteer. We do call everyone back within 2-3 days so please be patient. We work very hard to make the right matches for the dogs and for the new owners. We get 3-5 dogs per week; we do not have a facility where the dogs are housed, they are in foster homes throughout the Bay Area.
