Although she gets along with other dogs, she would do better as an only dog or with a dog her size that knows how to play with dogs.
Maddie walks well on a leash and is good about being brushed. She is also good in the car if the wind isn't blowing on her. She is good in a crate, but will not go in willingly.
Maddie is fearful of loud noises like thunder, fireworks and at first, my grandfather clock chime - though she has gotten used to that and it doesn't startle her now. Maddie is not picky about food, in good health and has no bad habits. She is up to date on all her shots and has been recently spayed.
Maddie will need a fenced in yard but she makes no attempt to jump a fence nor have I ever seen her trying to escape though I am careful with her at my front door. She is learning though that just because I am leaving, doesn't mean that she is.
Maddie is ready to find a loving home who will care for her well-being. She is being fostered in NW Ohio.

Once we receive your application, an interviewer will call you and try to answer any additional questions you may have. Our application can be found at http://www.tristatecollierescue.org/ under the adopt tab. Thank you.
