17/01/09 Maggie went to live with a foster family and had a wonderful few days with them, but she unfortunately became unwell and had to go back to CDRS for further investigations. Sadly, Maggie was put to sleep yesterday with kidney failure.
CDRS tell us: “While this is deeply disappointing as Maggie was such an exceptionally sweet dog and we had all become very fond of her, I would like to record my thanks to all the lovely people who saw the appeal for Maggie on your website and made themselves known to us offering her help in all sorts of ways. It restores your faith in humanity at a time when we have been dealing with some horrible neglect and cruelty cases.”
This beautiful little face belongs to Maggie, a 13 year old English Springer Spaniel, who is curently under the care of Chilterns Dog Rescue Society in Buckinghamshire.
Maggie is in rescue through no fault of her own as her owners, who she has been with all her life, are getting divorced and can no longer keep her. They are parting with her very reluctantly and of course her whole world has been turned upside down and she has no idea why. She is intelligent, loyal and obedient, in fact everything you could ask for in a dog.
A quiet home where Maggie can spend her retirement would be the thing that she wants most in life. She needs to feel safe and settled at her time of life as she must be wondering why she has had to leave the people she has spent her whole life with.
Maggie is slightly deaf and also has some slow growing fatty lumps which do not need any treatment at the moment. She is spayed and is used to children and cats.
Her photo just melts your heart – those appealing eyes and that face just say “please take me home”.
