Meet Madison

Madison can be described simply as a free spirited wild woman with no fear! Madi came to us with a broken leg and with her daredevil ways, there are endless possibilities as to how this injury may have occurred (jumping down a flight of stairs, jumping off a deck, getting smacked by a car, just to name a few). She is a social butterfly with absolutely no concept of personal space and enjoys the all paws onboard approach to play as opposed to keep away. There does not appear to be a mean bone in her body, but she has absolutely no manners and needs a firm but patient human to teach her. She is very food motivated but very mouthy when food is involved so finding a balance of rewards for achieving expectations is a must. She definitely is dog park material (once she learns that not every dog likes to be chewed on), will definitely need another dog in the house for company, and will definitely need puppy school to learn how to be a good citizen. No cats - they provide Madi with endless entertainment and she loves to seek them when they try to hide from her but she is definitely too intense for even the toughest of cats. It's been a LONG and difficult journey through splinting of her broken leg and cage rest with Friends of the Shelter's support, but it does appear that the first day of the new year will mark the first day of the rest of her life with a family of her own.
