Rescue senior red setter

MAtilda was left by is own owner to be euthanised in a local county shelter in the north of portugal - Maia.
She has a small mammary Tumor, her overall condition is bad and she seems to be around 12 wich turns her to be a good candidate to the perfect homeless!!! or at least put her in the most difficult group of dogs to be adopted - seniors dogs - unfortunatly!
Matilda needs extra care and a caring owner who understands she is on her last months with luck maybe years.
Matilda has developed a strange behaviour: sometimes if off the leash she starts to walk and walk and walk panting in stress. We need to stop making her sit and calm her down. Poor dog!
Today i took her to Aveiro in the north, where she finally found a house to relax a bit!!!
my friend Leonor is a caring person and understands well how much Matilda will need extra care on her last years.
Leonor prefers to call Matilda - Maggie so it will bring her new luck.
it was incredible how Maggie settle in so fast and how happy she was to have a bed for herself!
thank you so muchLeonor.

Reading Maggies story makes tears falling from my eyes. Makes me so sad to realise that there are people out there who can treat their pets and familymembers that way. To me unbelieveble. Makes me also happy to see that there is hope with this kind of people like you and your friend Leonor who dedicates your life to this. I can´t find words to describe such lovely human beings like you.
Just like to say THANK YOU!!
Big hugs for you, Leonor and sweet old Maggie!

Such a lovely girl is Maggie. Having a new name has certainly brought her some luck.
Enjoy your new home & your new life beautiful lady. You deserve it.
