About Maddy

I am in a foster home but I am still AVAILABLE for adoption!

My name is Maddy! I'm keeping my backstory a mystery, but it's time to focus on myself! I want all the cuddles, love and walks a girl can get. I am living in a foster home for the time being, as the shelter is full and I wanted some extra attention. I am a fairly calm and quiet lady, but I'll let out a bark here and there, especially to tell you it's time for supper. I am curious about things in the house, but I am not destructive, haven't had any accidents in the house, and am content to be left alone as long as I have a bed to cozy up in. I am learning what a leash is and I am getting the hang of walking on one. I am a calm leash walker, but I've never really used one before so I am cautious still. Certain things like ski poles/walking sticks, and folks wearing sunglasses seem to freak me out and I can react defensively by barking. Food has been scarce for me, so my new humans should be prepared to help me navigate my insecurity and protectiveness around food. I haven't seen dog toys before, so I'm not too sure what to do with a ball or rope toy, but I am ready to learn how to play - maybe you could show me?! I am eager to learn some commands and I already have "sit" all figured out. I love humans, and follow my foster all around the house, preferring to keep her in sight. Dogs seem pretty cool too, although cats are a no go for me. It's either they don't like me or I don't like them! We haven't found mutual grounds yet! I am excited to get out into the Rocky Mountain lifestyle! I would say I am pretty easy going!

Interested?! Please fill out our adoption application and submit to adopt@bowvalleyspca.org. Upon approval you will be contacted to arrange an appointment time to come meet me!
