Maggie is a 7-year-old Jack Russell terrier who has been called a canine prodigy. According to her owner, Jesse Treff, Maggie can add, subtract, multiply, divide and count. "When she was about 3 months old she was learning things so fast that a friend of mine jokingly said, 'Maggie's so smart I bet she can count.'" But it was no joke! Jessie says that when she held up four fingers, Maggie tapped her foot four times. Shortly after, Maggie started doing basic arithmetic.

Jessie says Maggie is also able to learn names and even fetch a tissue when someone sneezes. "You can actually teach dogs things very, very quickly with positive reinforcement," she says.
