When Maggie the doggo was found in Lebanon, she was pregnant and abandoned, tied to box. What was truly miraculous is that even though Maggie was found with 17 bullet wounds, one eye shot out, her eat cut off and with a broken jaw, she had survived the trauma against all odds.

“My name is Maggie and I’m a rescue dog. I’m happy, friendly and just want to be loved. But I was attacked and suffered horrific abuse for no reason. All I wanted was to love those who hurt me. With time I healed and now have a lovely home with my mom and fur sister. We live in this beautiful city called Brighton which each year celebrates love in all its forms. We will be watching on and celebrating @brightonprideofficial this year and can’t wait! Who you love shouldn’t make you a target. Who we love should be celebrated and cherished. Love is pure and love is good. Love can conquer all and love can heal all wounds..” -Maggie #loveislove #bemoremaggie #🏳️🌈 • • • June 28th- 29th 1969 was the start of the Stonewall Riots. Widely known as one of the most important events leading to the LGBT liberation movement. This year marks 50 years since these protests and while we have come so far there is still more that needs to be done across the world. I think it goes without saying, that here on Maggie’s page, we are completely inclusive. We don’t care about your sexuality, gender, race, religion, disabled or if you’re a three headed alien vacationing here on Earth... all that matters is who you are on the inside. So love who you want and know that me and Maggie and @theadventuresofmishka support you! Be kind to one another and we can do great things. Forgive one another like Maggie forgave us humans. Think before you speak and choose to be kind whenever you can. • • • #pride #lgbtpride #pride2019 #gaypride #queerpride #genderfluidpride #nonbinarypride #bisexualpride #transgenderpride #trans #transgender #mydogist #gayuk #lesbian #bi #bisexual #pansexual #nonbinary #gaydogdad #proudtobegay #brightonpride #gaypridebrighton #brightonpride2019 #brightondogs #dogsofbrighton #rescuedogsofinsta #rescuedogsofig
Her life turned around when she was rescued by an animal charity, Wild At Heart. News of her miracle rescue travelled all the way from Lebanon to Brighton, when Brighton resident Kasey adopted the 5-year-old girl and gave her a second chance at life.
Kasey had to petition long and hard to get her home - he organised a 6-month-long online campaign to get Maggie out of Lebanon.
Maggie is now spreading smiles in Brighton. She is Instagram-famous too, as 'Maggie The Wunderdog', and has a fan-following of above 86,000!
She has recently registered to be a therapy dog. She is visiting care homes, hospitals and universities to spread cheer and positivity.

“Guess what....I am now a registered therapy dog!! Do you think I’ll be able to make people happy?” -Maggie #bemoremaggie #bemoredog • • • As many of you know.. Maggie has a heart that loves unconditionally!Her spirit is infectious! She has a has a big personality. And she has and aurora that is so calming. Her story catches the hearts of many and reminds us all of our inner strength. Since the first time I met Maggie I knew she would make a great therapy dog if she wanted to be. Thankfully we found a charity that not only uses the healing power of dogs but also teaches the importance of animal welfare. Yesterday me and Maggie went to meet with her assessor, @maherandhounddogtraining she flaunted her stuff and gave it her best go and she PASSED. Maggie is now a registered therapy dog with @underdog_international . She and I will speak to schools and work hands on with youngsters. I know what happened to Maggie was horrendous but if her story can educate and inspire others to do good then at least we can do our part to make this world a little brighter. • • • #therapydog #therapydogsrock #therapydogsofinstagram #therapydoglife #dogtherapy #gooddoggos #dogisgood #gooddoggie #gooddoggo #rescuedogs #rescuedogsarethebestdogs #rescuedogsofinsta #rescuedoglife #rescuedoglove #dogslove #lovedogs #doglover #blinddog #dogsofinstagram #dogsoflondon #rescuedogstory #disableddogsofinstagram #dogsaretherapy #dogsaremytherapy
