We do not know much about Maggie‘s past except she came from a shelter. She was found wandering the streets. She was in very bad shape and her skin was inflamed, her eyes had gunk on them and she had numerous bald spots. Maggie came to her Old Dog Haven Final Foster Home very smelly, dirty, hungry and scared. The first night she was given a bath so she could have a good night sleep being clean. She thanked us by talking and then silence for the next few weeks. This has changed as she has become more comfortable in her new home and now she talks all the time:) and she is her ‘Mom’s’ shadow.
Maggie has very dry eyes (and we are not sure what she can see), very high blood pressure and her back legs will give out at times. She has seen the ophthalmologist several times to get her “dry eye” condition under control; she has had an abdominal ultrasound to look for bladder stones (and to confirm that she’d been spayed in the past), and she is being treated with two meds for high blood pressure.
Her family is very grateful to ODH for all they do for these precious old pups. With the proper diet, medications and love Maggie is starting to trust humans again. She is a blessing to her new home and her foster ‘mom’ caller her “my little angel”.
