Experiencing the loss of a dog brings an indescribable heartbreak, leaving one questioning if they provided enough care or were the perfect companion for their pet. While nothing can fully mend the sorrow, certain steps can lessen the anguish. For the McCraw family, the arrival of a new rescue dog brought a semblance of solace following the death of their cherished dog, Mischka, who succumbed to cancer. Their sorrow was profound. During their period of mourning, Maggie entered their lives, compelling them to make her part of their family.


Arranged by Halfway There Rescue, the family’s initial meeting with Maggie in South Carolina was deeply moving. Mary and her husband, Mark, felt an instant connection with Maggie, charmed by her affections during their first encounter, as if destiny had brought them together.

Maggie, throughout the meeting, clung to Mark, expressing her gratitude for being rescued. She jumped up and down, giving him the sweetest hugs, showing her gratitude. Learning of Maggie’s past abuse and exploitation for breeding by her former owners before being abandoned, the McCraws were deeply distressed.


Before joining the McCraws, Maggie had been under the care of Andra Mack in a foster home, where she gradually regained her trust in humans. Now ready for a permanent home, the McCraws eagerly welcomed her to South Carolina, promising her a loving fresh start. This story serves as a testament to the kindness of those willing to open their hearts to a dog in dire need of love and protection. Here’s to wishing the McCraws and Maggie many joyful adventures ahead.
