Maggie is a Chocolate Labrador Retriever who was born on June 8, 2012 in the United States. She worked with the RCMP in the Roving Traffic Unit and was based out of Cochrane, Alta. Maggie worked with two handlers during her career, Cpl. Greg Stefaniuk and then Cpl. Mark Scheck.
The bulk of Maggie’s career was spent with her handler working on the highway 1 corridor where her excellent nose assisted in many large drug seizures. She also worked in Manitoba for a bit at the Winnipeg International Airport. During her career on highway 1, Maggie was personally responsible for sniffing out hundreds of pounds of cannabis, many kilograms of cocaine, methamphetamine, and MDMA from vehicles on the road.
Maggie has adjusted to retirement and lives with her old handler Cpl. Mark Scheck. She is a social butterfly and she wiggles her bum when she’s happy which makes people laugh. Because she enjoyed being a working dog, she still loves being given tasks to do to keep her busy.
