We adopted Maggie on June 10, 2012. She was heartworm positive and very, very shy. We had just lost our 14 year old Australian Shepherd mix, Murphy on April 23rd so we were still very sad. I came across Maggie (then called Charlotte as well as Lady) on the Castle of Dreams website. We went to see her at her rescue home and decided she would be our next fur baby.
The poor little girl had to go through 2 sets of heartworm treatments, a month apart. We had to keep her very quiet during that time as the dying worms could possibly lodge somewhere in her little 22 lb body and cause her to have a heart attack or stroke. Well, long story short, she's now heartworm negative and is now on monthly heartworm preventative meds. So my Maggie beat those ugly critters. And we have the Castle of Dreams Rescue to thank for that. It seems that these shots are super expensive and they supplied them to Maggie.
Maggie was a puppy mill mom and probably spent the first 3 years of her life in a cage. That has all changed now. She is learning how to play with toys, get loads of pets and tons of love. She loves the backyard - doesn't bother the bunnies but can't understand what happens to the squirrels when she chases them. She's beginning to realize trees have something to do with it.
My sister came all the way from Florida just to see Maggie. She came with a new blanket for Maggie's bed as well as a new hat for her. Even her Facebook friends, Mistee and Mojo from England sent her a new blankie.
She's showered with love and affection. She is still a bit shy but we take one day at a time. By this time next year, she'll have all of us eating out of her paws (oops, she already has!!).
We can't thank Castle of Dreams fosters enough for giving us a new fur baby to complete our family again. Every foster pawrent that I've be in touch with gives 110%. I always say if I hit the lotto big, I'd put the biggest smiles on the fosters at Castle of Dreams Animal Rescue!! Thank you Castle of Dreams for making us a family again!!
