This is Maggie. I adopted her after my last ferret passed away. I wasn't sure how long I wanted to wait after losing Tegan, but after about a week I knew I wanted to find another pet. I found her at the Humane Society of El Paso. She looked cute, but I wanted to look at the other dogs. After the third time around the kennels, I knew I wanted her. I wanted to get to know her a little before I went to adopt her. I was rubbing her nose through the bars, not knowing if I could open the cage, when she started to lie down. I noticed she was having a little difficulty. I opened the cage door, looked her over, and found that she was missing part of her front left leg. That really cinched the deal for me. I had been to another shelter a few days before and I was interested in this small dog, but it didn't feel right. This totally felt right and I proceeded with the adoption process. She has no trouble getting up and down the stairs. She runs everywhere she goes and is a total joy. Thanks for letting me go on about my find.
