Pets of Miami Lakes

     Say hello to Maggie! She is a Jack Russell Terrier/Chihuahua mix who has lived in the Lake Martha neighborhood with Marta Bermudez and Antonio Mendibur since July, when the couple moved to town.

     Maggie, 8, came to Miami Lakes from Coconut Grove in search of beautiful sunsets over the water, Mendibur said.

     “She always goes outside and looks at the ducks,” he said. “She stays on the lake bank. There are lots of ducks and ducklings to entertain her.”

     The sweet-faced pup with fawn-colored markings may be seen enjoying paddle boat rides on the lake, where she and her owners hope to meet their new neighbors. 

     If you’d like to introduce your pet to the readers of The Miami Laker, please send photos and contact information to
