Maggie is a lovely female, 9-month old Pit Bull mix. She has some American Bull Dog in her, which adds to her charm. Maggie is a very lovable girl, who likes to play and smile. She is very feminine, from her lovely eyes, to her dainty walk, and her sweet, gentle nature. Maggie has received high scores for very good behavior. She likes other dogs and loves people. She has many endearing qualities that will tug at your heart, and would develop meaningful connections with all the members of her family. Maggie will probably get a little bigger. She would love to curl up with you on the couch and watch a movie or nap while you are reading a book. She will need a yard with a high fence, because she is also athletic, and an excellent jumper. Maggie is a very special dog who is sweet, loving, and gentle, plus she has a great attitude that allows her to be sociable with people and dogs. Maggie is lovely in every sense of the word and would be a wonderful companion. She will need to be spayed. (A6935532)
