Our beautiful little hippo, Maddie, is looking for love and security in a family to call her own. She was adopted briefly earlier this year, but sadly we found out fairly early on that it just was not the right match. Maddie an absolute doll, a bit of a clown, playful, and affectionate when she’s with the right family. You see, Maddie can be a timid girl and needs a really outgoing, confident canine sibling to help her come out of her shell. She is anything but shy in her foster home, but in her adoptive home she was very withdrawn and chose to spend most of her time alone in her crate. So, Maddie went back to her PLP foster family and acted as though she hadn't missed a beat. We have allowed her some time to settle back in and this has also made us reconsider the type of home that would be best for this silly girl to flourish.
As we mentioned, Maddie needs at least one other confident, but not pushy or overbearing, and playful doggie sibling to help her blossom and let her guard down. Also, a family who will be able to gently help coax her along without overwhelming her would be perfect. Maddie can even live with a kitty and kids! She's a super sweet pup who needs a fairly active family who will include her in their daily activities. Right now she joins her foster family on hikes and day trips and she absolutely loves it. As long as she feels secure and confident, she is nothing short of a barrel of silliness! Think you could be the forever family who can help Maddie blossom? If so, she would love to meet you!
