Main Character in Perfectly Maggie
Maggie had a tough start in life. She was rescued from a puppy mill. She is anything but the conventional definition of "perfect." Her crooked smile, squeaky bark, tangled fur and wobbly knees are outshined by her kind and loving nature. Her enthusiastic tail wagging has delighted childen everywhere!
