Madge is a 6 year old, 73 lb., female Staffordshire terrier mix. Don’t let Madge fool you, she is a bit shy at first but give her some walk time and she will relax. Madge may try to lead you off your walking path, but it’s just that she is a very inquisitive gal. Overall, she is sweet and gentle so with a calm reminder, Madge will easily rejoin you on your trail.
UPDATE from foster home: Madge is a sweet, quiet, gentle girl. She rarely barks despite the commotion in the house. Madge crates well and is housebroken. She is not a jumper or chewer. She is a bit reserved at first but a real lovebug after a short while and will give kisses. She loves walks, balls, and pets on the head. While not super active, she is game for good walks. She pulls only a bit on the leash and is easily corrected most times. Other dogs make her nervous at first, and she prefers that they not get in her face, but she seems to recognize when they want to play. She waits easily for her harness, food, and treats. She does not guard her food, but prefers to keep a ball instead of returning it for another throw. Madge is currently in a foster home with 3 kids, the youngest is 9, and 3 cats. Cats make her very nervous, however we are working on this. The only time she has barked has been when the cats moved toward her. Otherwise she just watches them. If you'd like to meet Madge, please contact Christine at email@example.com.
