Maggie is one of the prettiest girls to grace our Rescue. A two year old North Carolina native, Maggie was part of an 8-pack of Foxhounds surrendered to a North Carolina shelter when their owners filed for divorce.

Hubby was losing the house and could not keep his eight Hounds. The tears and sympathy were flowing until it was discovered that the dogs were malnourished and unkempt. Two of the eight-pack were named "Favorite" and "Least Favorite," but the dogs were much "loved." Still, the crocodile tears flowed.


Maggie joined our rescue along with two of her housemates: we were immediately smitten. This lovely lady navigated the rescue process with ease, and while she seems shy at first, she opens up easily once the human love starts flowing. She is extremely affectionate, and would make an outstanding family dog. Maggie loves people and could easily live happily with older kids. Her gentle, loving nature is on full display. She definitely wears her heart on her sleeve.

Maggie is a medium sized dog at 55 pounds, but could easily gain 5 pounds to reach normal weight. She is active, but does not have an over-the-top energy level. She requires a couple of leisurely, "smell the roses" daily walks, but then is content to rest or take a nap. She would do well in a family setting, or with a single, or retired folks. Maggie will be happy as long as she is loved.

Maggie loves other dogs and has become a superstar in our large dog playgroup. She easily could join a multi-dog home with other friendly dogs, but we have not had her around cats. She is available solo, or with either of her housemates, Favorite and Least Favorite, to anyone interested in a well matched pair.

Maggie is an American Foxhound. As a scent Hound, her instincts are a mixed bag of gun dog attributes. Her ideal adopter would be an active single or couple, who can include Maggie on hikes, runs, walks, camping, or any kind of outdoors activity that will challenge mind and body.

Maggie has good house manners, and is house trained and crate trained. Adopters should expect to troubleshoot the occasional accident that will inevitably occur during her transition to a new home. She has been spayed, and has received routine vaccinations and health screenings.
