Maggie is an amazing Sheepdog. 100% house broken, sweet as can be, loves her toys, kids of all ages, cats and other dogs. Maggie is 8 years old. She has been spayed, heart worm tested, x-rayed, had a full blood count, vaccinated, treated for fleas and ticks, microchipped and is on heart worm prevention. Maggie is located in Arlington, Texas.
Maggie needs a home without a lot of stairs. One where she can spend her senior years laying around her new family, and just being loved.
Maggie has been diagnosed with *DISH *Diffuse idiopathic skeletal hypeperostosis.* Dish is considered to be a form of arthritis, however DISH is characterized by unique flowing calcification along the vertebrae of the spine. The simple explanation is her spine is completely fused together resulting in less mobility. This is something she was born with, and likely due to bad breeding.
Maggie has just started taking gabapentin, which helps dogs with chronic pain. She is also on Carprofen a generic pill for Rimadyl. This medication is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory. There is no surgery that can fix this, so she will likely remain on these pills for the rest of her life.
While Maggie was at the vet we had her hips x-rayed. Her hips look fantastic! In fact everything looked great. She does have a little arthritis but nothing major.
Maggie likes riding in the car, and does pretty well on a leash. She loves to play, and is super adorable! She is even smiling in her picture!
This is one fantastic dog, who deserves to spend her senior years with people who will love her, and spoil her rotten. Help us find that person!
