Maggie is a true athlete looking for an active human companion. The young 1-year-old Queensland heeler likes anything that involves running, jogging, hiking, and exploring outdoors.

This breed is happiest when they have a job to do and Maggie will never leave your side, following you around the house and offering to lend a helping paw if you ever need it. She will even carry the newspaper in each morning.

With her natural steering instincts, she will round up a herd of cows, a pack of dogs or a rowdy bunch of children—but her energy would be better channeled if her owner were to teach her agility instead. She is brilliantly smart and eager to please.

Chewing on a bone or simply watching the sun set from the back porch while lying at your feet is the perfect way to end the day.

Bring the whole family to the Arizona Humane Society’s Sunnyslope Campus located at 9226 N. 13th Ave. to meet Maggie. Her adoption fee is $110 and includes her spay surgery and vaccines. For more information, call 602-997-7585 ext. 2045. Maggie may have been adopted by the time you reach the shelter, however, AHS has dozens of animals awaiting their forever homes.
