found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Maddi loves to play, and is always on the go until she has one of her puppy crashes. Maddi was turned in at a rural animal control facility. Her owner could not keep her through no fault of Maddi’s. She has the opportunity now to find her forever family. Maddi deserves a family who is as devoted to her as she will be to them. She needs to belong in a home where she will not be allowed to roam free and be safe, and where she can be confident in that fact that she is home forever and will never be lost or abandoned again. Maddi would do well in an active home. She is great in the car.
Maddi enjoys all forms of exercise offered her and she requires daily walking and activity. Without regular exercise, a puppy tends to get into mischief. Maddi is a normal puppy that is full of energy and she does well with regular walks and playing in the yard no matter what the weather so she needs an active family. Maddi has also been taken on walks about town and in pet food stores and she does very well. She even fell asleep on the floor in the middle of a busy pet store during a promotional event. Maddy is a low stress pup and very little seems to phase her.
Maddi is housebroken and will give you a subtle sign that she needs to go out. Of course with any puppy her housebreaking is only as good as her supervision. If you are watching her when she is out and about and catch her signs that she needs to go out then she will be no problem. Puppies need 100% supervision when they are out in the house or they can get into trouble or have accidents. Maddi is also crate trained and sleeps in her crate at night and when alone in the house. We are still in disbelief that such a beautiful and lovable dog was abandoned. Maddi is good with other dogs and has settled in nicely with her foster sisters. She loves to play with both of them and looks to her older sisters for guidance. She would do well in a home with another friendly, well behaved dog, but this is not a necessity for her. Maddi would do just as well being the only dog and getting all the attention to herself. She will need a family willing to devote the time to make sure that she is properly socialized and trained so that she continues to grow up being a dog social, people friendly dog.
Maddi is also good with her three foster cats. Maddi is not being fostered in a home with children and we believe that with her loving nature, she would do fine with older children (over 10yrs). Maddi will be a large dog and as she continues to grow she will become too big for toddlers or young children as she is bounding around the yard in her clumsy teenage stage. She would be fine though for a childless family thinking of maybe having kids in the future as she will mature into a lovely, relatively calm dog if properly trained and exercised. Maddi is a happy go lucky puppy that loves to play. Maddi is being taught basic obedience in her foster home and knows "sit" and “lie down” and “time for bed” Maddi's new family should commit to continuing her obedience training to bring out the best in this very smart dog. In the end you will have a fantastic family dog that has all the love in the world to give. Maddi needs to attend puppy socialization classes now followed by basic obedience classes as she matures. She needs a family willing to commit to training her well and making sure she is an obedient, well-behaved member of society.
Puppies are very cute and hard to resist but they do require a lot of time commitment and are not for everyone. Maddi will need a family where someone can come home for lunch to let her out or has a family schedule that will allow for her to be crated for no longer that 5-6hours at this point in her life. Puppies just can’t hold it for an 8-10hr work day so that needs to be taken into account. She will also need people willing to devote themselves to raising a great dog. This means time invested into training, exercising and socializing her. The more you do with a puppy when they are young the better dog they become. We are looking for an active family for Maddi that are already avid fans of the outdoors. Maddi is an all-weather type of dog and she will require outdoor activity all year long. She will be a great dog for hiking, camping, long walks, car rides, biking (if properly trained), and many other fun activities!
Maddi’s rough start has not held her back from loving life and being a happy, affectionate girl. She is looking for a forever home to share her life with. If you are looking for a super sweet, highly trainable, and active puppy then she may just be the perfect one for you!
