Maddie is available for adoption or foster. Maddie is a great girl who is adventurous and full of life! She is nothing but love, and always eager to please her humans.
Maddie is a younger dog, only 3 years of age and has spent her entire life in rescue, waiting for a home. We cannot even begin to fathom why, because she is a wonderful dog! Maddie adores her people, and makes it easy to go out in public amongst the crowd. She enjoys meeting new people and gets along with everyone! She makes it easy to return the love because she is happy to lay at your feet, or give you a hug with tons of kisses!
We put her energy level at moderate because though she is a highly active dog, she is not overly hyper. She can definitely handle any outdoor activity you seek to spend with this girl. Whether it be hiking, biking, even swimming. This girl loves to be outdoors, and as you can see is happy to be playing with her friends! She is energetic, and is usually one of the ones to lead the playtime when her and her pack are out to play, which is currently 11 dogs strong. She LOVES toys of all kinds, and enjoys chasing the water hose. When the heat gets going, maddie enjoys getting wet to cool down!
Maddie is 100% housebroken, and there's no need for worry about the furniture or rugs! She is well behaved, and since she is so eager to please(especially with a tasty treat for motivation) she will happily respond when given commands. She has been working on her basic obedience since she arrived, and was already well versed when she got here so it's really not been a struggle at all.
Maddie knows sit, come, stay, an go to crate. If she is being rowdy, a simple 'No Ma'am' takes the edge down, and this girl is waiting for your next command. She is easy to work with, so continued training will be simple and sweet; something fun for all of the family to enjoy together!
Maddie is crate trained, housebroken, and leash trained! Maddie just gets excited and wants to greet everyone, so don't be surprised if she jumps up to give a kiss! This sweet girl is 100% ready to go on the medical side of things as she is spayed, up to date on vaccinations, microchipped and on monthly flea/HW preventions.
Please contact email@example.com for more information about this dog. You can apply online at www.aarfhouston.org/forms . Once your application is approved, we will schedule a meet and greet. Thank you for considering a rescue!
The adoption fee includes vet check, vaccinations, Bordetella, de-worming, rabies, spay/neuter and microchip. There is a an additional $12.99 fee for Home Again for a lifetime registration of the microchip. If adopting a puppy, the rabies and spay/neuter will be done at the same time by our vet once they are 4 months old and billed to us. There is a $50 deposit on all puppies that have not been fixed yet. Once you provide us with proof of spay/neuter and rabies, you will receive your deposit back or we can send you a receipt to deduct from your taxes as a donation. It is against the law in the State of Texas for a rescue not to be sterilized so we have to make sure it gets completed and that we have record of it.

AARF is a 501(c)3 Non Profit, all breed, no kill organization. Our group is always in need of donations in order to continue to give the needed medical care to our rescues. Adoption fees do not begin to cover all of the medical costs. Any donation, no matter how small is a big help and is greatly appreciated. Please help us to continue to help them. Thank you.
