Maggie was an extraordinarily well-behaved puppy who picked up potty training like a champ. She was a bit of a free spirit however and loved to chase horses when she managed to escape every now and then. Maggie was very loving and gentle with the right amount of energy that made her a wonderful companion.

The long hair and constant shedding did lead to quite a mess at times and she required frequent brushing (especially after baths). She also developed "hot spots" on her skin quite often and died fairly young from Cushing's Disease. Our time with her was wonderful despite these drawbacks though.
