Meet Maddie! Maddie is a 3 year old, 70 lb German Shepherd. She’s extremely friendly with everyone she encounters. Adults, other dogs (especially little dogs), and children. We haven’t seen her around any cats yet. She likes going on her daily walks every morning, she seems very happy and cheerful. She walks well on leash, is attentive to commands, and wants to please. Great temperament. As a GS, she’s smart and obedient. As far as commands she understands the basic, “no”, “wait”, “stay”. Because she has hip dysplasia, it’s difficult for her to sit, she will sit very slowly or lie down to relax. She is also potty trained. She LOVES trips to the dog beach and dog parks. She plays with all dogs and likes to be in the water.
*Maddie has been diagnosed with the early stages of moderate hip dysplasia. She is responding well to glucosamine and chrondroitin supplements. This is a typical condition for the breed and should be monitored. She also has mild immune-medicated gingivitis. No treatment is recommended at this point, but she should be fed small, moistened kibble or wet food and re-evaluated in a year. Maddie is spayed, microchipped and current on her vaccinations. Her adoption fee is $250
All of our dogs are in private volunteer foster homes, and as such these individuals are most qualified to answer any questions regarding the dog.
We do not have a central shelter or kennel locations - you must make a private one-on-one meet and greet appointment with each individual dog at the foster family's convenience. To protect our foster families' privacy, we must have an APPROVED adoption application on file before we release their contact information.
All of our dogs are fixed (spayed/neutered) and up to date on shots. We have a 2 week foster-to-adopt period to make sure the dog is a fit for your family. Adoption fees vary from dog-to-dog.
Please note that an approved application DOES NOT guarantee that the dog will be placed with you. The final decision rests with our fosters as they know the dogs the best, and please be aware that there may be other applicants interested in the same dog. We continue accepting applications on a dog until the dog is with the new adoptive family in their home.
Thank you for visiting our dogs located at www.SecondChanceDogRescue.org
