Given the challenges she has already had to overcome in order to survive, 5-year-old Maggie is really a miracle dog.
Her tale of fortitude and tenacity began in Lebanon. Maggie was discovered with one ear severed and her jaw damaged, chained to a box. Maggie was abused and then shot 17 times with a shotgun while she was still pregnant, completely losing her vision.
The sad dog was found by someone in Lebanon, who then posted a message requesting assistance. The Wild At Heart Foundation provided assistance to a woman in London after she saw the appeal. Maggie received help. Before she was given up for adoption and before finding her happy home in Brighton, England, she had to undergo surgeries and other treatments.
Maggie, a star on the Internet with almost 248,000 Instagram followers, is owned by 25-year-old Kasey Carlin. Because of her popularity, Kasey quit her work as a dog walker to focus solely on running Maggie’s Instagram account.
We all know the values she stands for because we were taught them as children, but she has taught me and others a lot of lessons. But she constantly brings things up to me. Treat people the way you want to be treated, don’t judge a book by its cover, love conquers all, be humble, enjoy life to its fullest, give to others, find happiness for yourself—if you believe it, you can do anything! Kasey told this outlet, “Every day she reminds me to try to be better and accomplish better.
Recently certified as a therapy dog, Maggie has been visiting medical facilities, nursing homes, and colleges where everyone can sense the peace and love she exudes. Maggie has won over Kasey’s other dog, Mishka, in addition to her owners at home.
“I’m constantly in awe of how many people are interested in her tale. She had been neglected for so long that the only reason I agreed to foster her was that no one else did. Kasey concludes, “I’m delighted she can spread such an uplifting message to the globe.
