Maggie May is an 7 month old big baby of an Old English Sheepdog. Currently she is a shy and scared little big girl who has already in her 7 months of life gone through a lot. She looks to the resident dogs and her foster mum for reassurance in her daily life. She is not going to bond straight away this is going to need to be built up in her own time. The right resident dog is going to play a BIG part in her happy forever after.

She has been good with people she knows in the home but will not choose to come to you until she can totally trust you. She currently doesn’t play with the other dogs or toys but does like to sit and watch.

As a big scared puppy, she can be rehomed with older dog savvy children.

She pays no attention to the resident cat and acknowledges other dogs and gives a sniff but doesn’t interact

She is used to wearing a lead and will wear a harness but currently will not go for a walk outside of the garden. She is going to need to build her confidence in the home with her new family and fur siblings before venturing out into the big wide world. This is going to need to be done at her pace.

Maggie currently sleeps where she wants be it on the settee, dog bed in kitchen or in humans bedroom but she doesn’t like being alone unless it’s in her safe place.

House training is a work in progress. She will toilet outside if you take her out and will pace around when she needs to go but she won’t come back in readily and it takes a while to get her in. Following the other dogs and being rewarded helps with this but there may be occasions where you need patience. When she is scared, she will toilet where she is. This is not her fault and will improve, she needs time and a loving family.

Maggie doesn’t really eat treats but does like the occasional digestive biscuit. Currently she is given food in another room as the resident dog is greedy and Maggie is very subservient.

Maggie needs a home with a young resident patient dog of a similar size who can show her the roped. A family that has knowledge and experience of her breed and big dogs who can be patient and watch this big baby blossom into the puppy she should be. She is growing in confidence every day and makes her foster mum proud with how she’s changing but this is going to take time and patience.

To be adopted on a neutering and training agreement.

Vaccinated, Microchipped and up to date flea and wormer.

Comes with 5 weeks free Agria pet insurance.

Fostered in Cardiff.
