It's not Friday, but News 12 New Jersey gave an extra dose of Paws & Pals Tuesday. Best Friend Dog and Animal Adoption partnered with Ramapo Bergen Animal Refuge, Inc. to save Maggie who is looking for a foster home.
They are also looking for Maggie’s original owner. Maggie was found in the Westside Park section of Paterson. Paterson police are investigating, and a $5,000 reward is being offered for any information leading to the arrest of Maggie’s former owner.
More about Maggie:
Maggie might be 2 to 3 years old. She is very sweet but a little timid at first. Once she warms up, she loves to play fetch and tug.
She seeks out love and cuddles and is most passionate about her meals and treats. Maggie would do best in a home with no other pets or small children (for now).
