Maggie has found her partner in crime

Digby and I adopted Maggie (aka Flossy) in May 2012.

Digby & Maggie

We had been searching for some time for another dog to add to our household. Digby, a pugalier, is a rather relaxed fella and enjoys his own downtime, so a dog that could ‘read’ other dogs would be his best match. I contacted the Dogs’ Refuge and explained our situation. The staff, as always, were so helpful and each week I would phone to check if a suitable dog was available.

One Saturday, Digby and I went to the Dogs’ Refuge to see a potential match up but by the time we arrived this dog had been adopted. Standing in the reception area I could see a little black streak running back and forth by the counter. This was Maggie, a toy poodle cross, who had just been surrendered. Digby and Maggie’s ‘meet and greet’ went very well due to the excellent management of their meeting by staff. Maggie came home with us that day and has fitted in perfectly with our home and lifestyle.

Digby and Maggie adore each other. They play together, rest on each other when they sleep and enjoy each other’s company. With Digby's relaxed nature and Maggie's playfulness they balance each other very well. Maggie is mischievous, bold, gentle, affectionate, smart, sweet and very funny.

Maggie has been the most wonderful addition to our family. I feel very lucky to have two beautiful rescues in my life. Thank you for all the brilliant work you do.

Lisa, Digby and Maggie.
