Dog of the Week: Magnolia

Julia D Dog of the Week

Magnolia is a happy but nervous girl that would do best in a low-key home environment with a confident dog near her size to show her the ropes, as well as a human that is around most of the time. Magnolia was surrendered to Last Hope for life-saving surgery after she ingested a piece of blanket that had been left in her kennel with her. So, while she is kennel trained, extra care needs to be taken when she is left on her own as she will eat/chew things she should not have. Magnolia is very nervous in new situations and around new people and may exhibit reactive behavior (barking, growling, lip curling, and possibly lunging) if not properly introduced and managed, she does seem to like women better than men. Magnolia isn’t a lapdog, but she wants to be with her person all the time! She seems to get along with most other dogs and is going to be starting doggy daycare soon so she has someone to play with. She tolerates the cat in her foster home, but probably couldn’t be trusted to be left alone with her. Cats are too unpredictable for Magnolia’s taste! Magnolia likes to go for car rides, loves going for walks, and behaves beautifully on a leash. She is not a fit in a home with children. Magnolia’s history includes having been heartworm positive, so it is strongly recommended that she stay on preventives year-round for life.

Magnolia’s adoption fee is $250 and includes spay surgery, being up to date on vaccinations and preventives, a microchip with free lifetime registration, and a free obedience class.

If you think you could give Magnolia the home she needs and you’d like to meet her, please complete an adoption application HERE.
