Maggie is an affectionate and petite 2 year old Dogue de Bordeaux. She weighs 95 pounds and is energetic and playful and is the perfect companion. She loves meal time and her favorite word is cookie. She spent a lot of time in a crate in her prior life and she is excited knowing what a wonderful life it is outside of her crate. Her family surrendered her with a calm male Dogue de Bordeaux, we think she would do best with another easy-going large-breed male dog or a single dog family who has a lot of time home to be with her and give her lots of attention that she craves.

Maggie is very sweet and happy go lucky and loves to give kisses even while walking on lead, she will stop to give her foster parents a kiss. She may take a little time to warm up to strangers, sometimes she will retreat, but she warms up quickly. Being energetic, she needs a fenced in yard to play in and an active family who has molosser experience would be a good fit for her.

Name: Maggie

Nicknames: “Cookie” (we nickname all of our foster dogs this because we train them to come by giving them a cookie)
Location: Orange, CT
Age: 2 years old
Weight: 95 lbs
Good with dogs: She is doing well with the 2 bullmastiffs in her foster home though we never keep them in the same room, but she is calm round them. I would not place her with cats, small dogs, female dogs or any small pet.  She will need a home where she will have an easy-going, confident, large, male companion.
Good with cats: No, will not be adopted to a home with cats
Good with kids: No, will not be adopted to a home with small and/or young children
These are a few of my fosters favorite things: Quality food, yogurt, Al Cabones, lots of treats, she has a fantastic appetite, loves being by her people and she would do best with an easy-going large breed male dog. She loves squeaky toys and kongs, hugs, kisses and fluffy bedding and being in the comfort of her crate with the door open or closed, she also likes baths.
Meet Maggie
Maggie had 2 broken homes, the last one brought her into ABR and she is only 2 years old, through no fault of her own. She needs to bond with someone and trust that they will be around for her. She is a gentle dogue with a sweet disposition who is in need of a loving and understanding home. She quickly warms up once she gets to know you.  She is easy to have around and loves being in the company of her people and just relaxing by them, and she also loves running around in the yard chasing and playing with her toys. When she runs around in the yard she goes in all different directions and it is comical to watch her play as she is a bit uncoordinated. She is very quiet and low key until the door bell rings, she has a very deep voice for such a small DdB being 95 pounds. She is a very sweet dog and will bring a lot of happiness to the family who adopts her

Maggie, fostering in Orange, CT, is a petite 95 pound 2 year old Dogue de Bordeaux who hasn’t had it easy in her short life. She has had 2 families in 2 years through no fault of her own. The last family is going through a divorce and neither of them could keep her so they surrendered her to ABR.

Her ideal home would be a large-breed experienced home who has one well mannered large-breed male dog. She is still very puppy like and playful. Maggie is very affectionate often giving kisses and her paw, she is healthy, happy and just loves the company of her people. She is a very sweet dogue in need of a loving and patient home to help her continue with her confidence. She is a blast to watch run around in the yard as she really loves to run and play and this is why we feel a fenced shaded yard is so important to her so she can continue to just run free and play when the weather is cool enough for this.

If you are interested in adopting, please submit an adoption application at so we can see if he/she would be a good fit for you and your family. It is our policy at American Bulldog Rescue not to place the same gender dogs in a home. Adoptions are most successful and harmonious with opposite genders. Please also note: No one will be considered without first submitting an adoption application. Our dogs are in homes and only approved adopters can meet them. Once approved, you can meet any dog you like that would be a good fit for you/your family.
