Pet Pals: Maggie

Maggie the pit bull is a 7-year-old cancer survivor.

During her spay surgery the vet found, and removed, tumors on her ovaries. She's now healthy and gaining weight, and has a new nickname: the Velvet Land Hippo.

Adoption counselors say she is active and loves to go for walks and might make a good hiking partner.
