Maddie and Ruby
Maddie is calm with a sweet disposition and a cute crooked smile. While usually very "laid back", our puppy can definitely bring out the playfulness in her. She is from a puppy mill where she spent her 6 years outside away from people. She adores lap time and rub-downs now that she knows people will do this for her! Maddie wants to be with you, and even though she presents a somewhat calm and frail demeanor she can climb a 2ft baby gate without much trouble, so don't be fooled! Maddie is not protective of her food and has never nipped or showed any aggression whatsoever toward us or our visitors. She prefers a relaxed and slow dining experience, and as such, will lose her food to other dogs. Some care has to be taken to protect her from this. She is happy to eat in her kennel.
She came to us for fostering along with Ruby. Ruby and Maddie were pretty afraid of people's hands, but now they are mostly accepting of our approach and have made huge progress in this area. Calm and slow persistence in reaching for them is the best method until they get used to you. Neither shows any aggression toward people. Even their annoying little brother, a puppy who wants to goad them into wrestling, only gets an occasional "chill!" snarl from them when they are tired of playing. House training has been successful. No accidents for a couple of weeks now. They are good at using a doggie door. Maddie and Ruby have been together all of their lives, so they would ideally stay together as they are very attached.
