“After completing the interview process and home visit with Little Legs, we were OK’d to adopt. We drove to Maggie’s foster home to meet her and fell completely and totally in love with this sweet, smart, wonderful dog. She came home with us to Boston that day! Now, two years later, Maggie is happy and healthy, with a constantly wagging butt in the absence of a tail.” 🙂
“She hadn’t been trained prior to coming to her foster home; by the time she came home with us, her fantastic foster mom had taught her to sit. Now she knows “sit,” “stay,” “shake,” “high five,” and “rollover,” among other impressive tricks.”
“Maggie has the most expressive ears I’ve ever seen. They telegraph her emotions brilliantly and entertainingly. She also has many hilarious idiosyncrasies, like sneezing when she gets excited (which is often), an insatiable desire to eat all mini pumpkins within a 20-foot radius, howling along with TV commercials for “Where The Wild Things Are,” the ability to sprint like a greyhound when a squirrel enters the picture, and a charming ability to nuffle blankets into perfect Maggie nests using her head, her front paws, and lots of turning in circles.”
Maggie LOVES the beach! She zooms around on the sand with her tongue flopping out in joy, rolls around gleefully, and repeats the process over and again. On the opposite end of the weather spectrum, she also loves the snow — her reaction to it is equal parts confusion and OMGOMGSNOWWHEEEEEE!“

Happy tears. What a great love story!
Woo hoo! I'm biased, of course… but Maggie just might be the world's cutest little corgi lady. More importantly, though, thank you for including the shoutouts to Little Legs and CorgiAid!!
Yes, I have met Maggie and she is a wonderful ball of fur and full of love. Thanks, Patrice.
My corgi sneezes when excited too!
I read Maggie's story on the CorgiAid website before coming here…and knew there was no way I was going to get through the story and pictures here without happy tears.
Boy, was I right!
Maggie looks to be the sweetest CorgiGirl ever (well, maybe except for my Zoe *chuckle*) Thank heavens for CorgiAid, for groups like Little Legs, for Maggie's foster (and for everyone who does rescue/foster care), and for Maggie's forever family (and anyone who has every given a dog in need a forever home)… 🙂
…Diane and Zoe
I have been fortunate to meet Maggie (Thank you Patrice!!) and she is an absolute sweet heart!!!
There is definitely something about corgi ears – My baby uses them too. Maggie is very pretty, I'm so happy she found a forever home as good as yours.
Thank you all so much for your incredibly thoughtful comments! It is an honor to be able to give dogs like Maggie a happy forever home. Maggie is at the vet getting her teeth cleaned today, so once she's back, she'll have an even brighter smile for all of you. Thank you again! (And Ryann, I guess Maggie's sneezing-when-excited isn't as idiosyncratic as I thought! Isn't it the cutest thing ever, though?)
