Available Dogs arrow MADDIE (23-045)

MADDIE (23-045) is a Big Love. This 4-year-old girl appears to be a mix, but her heart and personality are 100 percent golden. She loves walks (good on a leash), car rides (sits nicely and loves watching out the window), snacks and cuddles. To get pets, Maddie will stand in front of you and stare at you with her big brown eyes. Always successful. She will do a “happy dance” when it is time to eat or go for a walk, and she’ll pick up a toy or blanket or something and “present” it to you. At nearly 90 pounds, Maddie could stand to shed some weight. There are no children in

Maddie’s foster home, though she is friendly with neighborhood kids on walks, getting pets and love from them. Because of her size, children aged 10 and up in her new home would be best. She is playful with other dogs and lived with cats in her previous home. Maddie is housebroken and can go a full day if there is a mid-day walker; she was crate-trained in her previous home but hasn’t been crated in her foster home. Her ideal forever home would have a furry sibling of similar age and energy (medium level), a fenced back yard to explore, and humans that will keep her social schedule filled with dog park playtimes, new trails, canine/canine-friendly events, and trips to PetSmart.
