The couple already had a dog at home named Charlie, who was scared of everything and had severe separation anxiety, and they worried about how he would react to his new sister Maggie. Almost immediately, though, Maggie worked her way into Charlie's heart, too.
"When we brought her home, they fell in love with each other," Lopez said. "He no longer barks when we leave the house, as long as Maggie is there. She is the glue to the family."
Five months later, the couple also adopted Moko, a scared little dog who began to come out of his shell as soon as he met Maggie. Maggie makes everyone around her feel safe, and takes care of her new family just as much as they take care of her.
