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 not a dog for first time dog owners.


Maddie is gaining confidence in a foster home with three other dogs and she is exploring and figuring out her place in the pack. We think it would be good for her to be with a confident dog in her new home but she may enjoy being the center of attention as an "only" as well. Maddie has had a mixed reaction to 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 will be willing to continue her training. Maddie loves toys and sticks and can be active and playful but will throw herself down for a good nap with the other dogs or the humans as well.
