Maddie - in Maine!
Posted December 2019
Maddie is a friendly 3 yr old girl who is approximately 46 lbs. She appears to be a lab mix, maybe with bulldog or boxer with that squishy face. She likes people and dogs once she gets used to the messages they are sending. Maddie can appear defensive at first because she has a big bark when she encounters new situations and is loud in play also. When she wants to meet someone she gets in a low play bow and gets all wiggly but she can be a bit unsure at first. When introduced properly she warms up quickly.
Maddie is gaining confidence with our friends at Kompletely K9 Training and Rehabilitation and with encouragement she will explore the thing that are scary for her. She will benefit from continued confidence building. We think it would be good for her to be with a confident dog in her new home. Maddie has had a mixed reaction to small children so we will only consider a family with older children or adults only. She is smart and learned her obedience commands quickly. Maddie’s new owners will need good leadership and training to help her be the awesome girl she has shown she can be!
Maddie was adopted in 2016 as a puppy and recently returned to us so she can find a home with the right combination of leadership, training, and activity level.
If interested in Maddie or any of our cuties, please fill out the adoption application.
Please note: we do not have a physical facility where the dogs are housed; they are cared for in our wonderful foster network throughout New England. It is our expectation that, once approved, a potential family will meet the dog(s) in the foster setting where they are safe and loved.
