My name is Maddie, I’m 7 years old going on 8, although the way I run around and play, you’d think I was a lot younger.
I was with my original human friends for 7 years but, unfortunately, they couldn’t keep me any longer, so I found myself in kennels. I found the experience quite distressing and didn’t cope at all well. Fortunately, I found a new temporary home where I feel so much better. I have gained confidence and am so much more relaxed and much less anxious.
If I’m allowed to say so – I’m a great dog! I enjoy human company, I love food and treats, almost as much as I love balls. I’m pretty good now; I come when I’m called, I sit on command (most of the time anyway) and I’m pretty good on the lead but very occasionally, I need gentle reminders!
I am not too keen on dogs but I just need further training and socialisation and I have proved that I can become more comfortable with dogs but I need consistent, gentle and controlled expose to other dogs.
I would very much like a home where a human is around quite a bit of the time. Although I’m able to spend time at home alone I much prefer to be with people. I am also house trained and don’t destroy things unless they are my own toys.
Could you be the one to meet all my needs and give me a forever loving home?
