Hey y’all! I’m Maggie Mae, and as my name suggests, I am a true southern belle Girl Boykin! You know a true southern belle never shares her exact age or weight, but my foster mom says I’m a petite like a lady boykin should be (24-25 lbs) & 8-ish yrs old. I love hanging out with my foster family and my foster Boykin siblings, and I enjoy a trot around the grounds or curling up with you on the back porch while you sip on an iced cold lemonade. I just love to have someone around to adore me! I was more of a wild child when I first arrived here, but I quickly learned that the best way to get what you want is to figure out these new things like “kennel up” & “sit” if you want a treat. Did I mention I love treats?
I know my name and will head right to the caller when they ask me to “come,” but sometimes I’ve just got to check one last thing in the yard first. I had a slow start with some nasty heartworms and had to stay in lock down on limited activity for the first couple of months here. I’ve completed my treatment now, and I’m back to being spunky, fun-loving, sweet as pie me! I’m a happy girl all of the time unless there is a thunderstorm, and then I just need someone to remind me that everything’s ok. I don’t have any interest to speak of in birds or squirrels, but I will chase a lizard with the energy of a 2 yr old! I also enjoy a walk on a leash with you. I have the most gorgeous golden eyes you have ever seen, and I’m just as beautiful and affectionate on the inside. I’m very curious, so don’t be surprised to find me checking inside of that kitchen cabinet when you open it or helping you select what to wear from your closet. I love to help you with all of your projects whether it is gardening or laundry. I’ll be right there by your side to keep you company. All I ask in return is an occasional scratch on the head that says you love me as much as I adore you.
I know most dogs prefer to chase tennis balls, and bring them back over & over. I like to add my own personal twist by burying them instead! My foster mom is very thankful that I don’t dig any other holes, and that I understand that the fence is my boundary. If I need grooming, I’ll trust you to do whatever you need to do, even my nails, although I must say that I do prefer just being brushed over pedicures! My dream forever home would have a family member or a canine sibling at home most of the time. I don’t mind being in my crate while you are gone to run some errands, but I am much happier when I am not totally alone.
With your patience, I’m still willing to learn new words & tricks. I’ve seen cats at the vet & I don’t go crazy barking at them, but I am curious so there could be a scuffle if a cat is afraid of me. Older children that are as gentle & sweet as I am would just mean more people to love me, but probably not toddlers. I enjoy sleeping in my crate at night, preferably within sight of you. My curiosity might get the best of me and cause me to wander off, so my dream home has a fence or someone who is willing to take me for walks on a leash multiple times a day. I haven’t shown any real interest in swimming yet, but who knows what my future holds now that I am able to enjoy life once again. I just dream of a home with someone who has a loving heart as big as mine.
Hello my name is Nash and I am a 4yr.old, handsome boy looking for my forever home. I weigh 30 lbs and my foster family thinks I am pretty beautiful with my wavy coat. I am smart, affectionate and eager to please. love nothing more than being with my humans and will make an awesome companion dog for the right folks.
I enjoy a wonderful run in the morning after breakfast to investigate, play fetch and mess around. I don’t bark. I look forward every evening to rolling around on the bed while my foster folks get ready for the night and then once we are all tucked in, I sleep peacefully all night. It took me about 2 weeks to realize that my fosters were coming home when they would leave. I would fuss some but now I can be left up to 4 hours and I do ok on my dog bed. I don’t do well crated and I really prefer not to be alone. I get along with other dogs, cats, kids and strangers. I come when called and know the SIT command. My fosters ask me to SIT before they feed me.
I don’t jump up on people. I do like to dig and investigate, so supervision outside is a good idea. I am so happy to have toys that I do chew a little too enthusiastically and need to be watched or given something indestructible. I am a very fast eater, so I eat out of a slow feeder bowl to keep me from inhaling my food. I am not a fan of loud noises or fireworks, but as long as I am safe inside with my human I do OK. I get a little agitated when riding in the car and it takes me a few minutes to settle down. I am learning to ride safely in the back seat, but I need a good bit more work.
The perfect home for me is where there is someone home to keep me company most of the time, or take me to work. That would be cool! Since I am still learning about how to be a well behaved Boykin, I need people who will continue to work with me on my training in basic obedience and also supervise me so I don’t get myself in trouble. A fenced yard would be best. If you are willing to continue my training and are looking for a dog to give you unconditional love and lots of kisses, I am your guy!
