Maddie is a one year old, forty-five-pound, American Staffordshire Terrier and Labrador Retriever mix. Maddie is full of spunk and individuality. She is housetrained, crate trained, and has had some basic command training (sit, down, place). Maddie is super smart and a little sassy! Maddie would be best as an only dog as she doesn’t care to share her toys, treats or her person with other dogs. She loves cuddles, playing with her ball & snuffle mat, and taking long walks through the woods to check out all the smells & sounds. Maddie is high energy, so a secure, fenced yard is recommended so she can chase her ball & do zoomies. Maddie would also do well with an active hiker, walker, or jogger. Maddie is good with mature kids ten and over since in her excitement she could knock a smaller child down. Maddie is very loyal and loving. She would be a great addition to a home willing to provide a ten-to-fifteen-year commitment, so please consider your life circumstances prior to applying. Apply at crisisdogsnc.org. We reply only to completed applications, no calls, no emails. Excellent vet references and a virtual home visit required. Your prior or current dog must be on year-round heartworm prevention. We prefer a fenced yard, but this is not required for all of our dogs. We transport by land or air whenever possible.
