Please Note: Maddox will not be adopted outside the state of Michigan.
This doofus goofball has the attention span of a gnat. But if you have food or treats, he becomes very motivated. He still searches for food as if he cannot get enough and, therefore, has the bad habit of counter surfing, which we are working on. Maddox was found in a ditch so weak he could barely move. He was near death. His rescuers put him in their car and drove him to the nearest vet where he underwent a blood transfusion to save his life. If his rescuers ever read this, Maddox would love to say, “Thank you for saving me!”
Maddox is a great lap dog and if you aren't looking, the next thing you know, he is sitting in your lap with a smile on his face. He likes being a snuggle bunny too. Maddox will need to be an only dog. He does fine with other dogs at first but when he gets too "wild" and they warn him by growling, he reacts more than he should.
He enjoys car rides and new adventures and whatever good things life has to offer.
If you are interested in adopting Maddox or would like further information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our application can be found online at here.
Our adoption process includes an application, personal and vet reference checks, and a home visit. We do not ship dogs under any circumstances.
We do not have a facility; all of our dogs are fostered in private homes. To view our dogs, please check our front page for the dates of our next Pet Parade. Appointments outside of Pet Parade to visit our dogs are only available after an application has been filled out, and processing has begun.
Please be kind to our volunteers. E-mail inquiries will be answered much faster than phone inquiries; our phone number is a voice mailbox only.

You'll receive a copy, too, at to help you keep track of which pets you've inquired about, and which shelters and rescues you've emailed.
NOTE: Some shelters have physical locations you can visit; some of these shelters may only have pets for a limited time, so please do not wait for a reply—just go visit the shelter! Other organizations are rescue groups run by busy volunteers who may take a while to reply. You can find information about the shelter or rescue group caring for this pet, and their adoption procedures, on the pet's details page on Adopt-a-Pet.com.
