Maddy's Story

My rescue dog "Maddy." About 5 1/2 years old, and weighs in at 32 pounds. She picked me out last May. :-) Cross between a Blue Healer and a Chocolate Lab. Turns out from her personality she's really a Blue Healer with a Chocolate Lab paint job! She was brought to the shelter as a stray, and was so terrorized that they were unable to place her on the general adoption floor. She would just cower in the back of her cage. I spotted her after she had been there for a month on the shelter's website, and wanted her right away! Our dog trainer is certain that she was abused, and suspects that she may have even been used as a "bait" dog. :-( It's taken some time to get her settled, and she is still terrified of other dogs, but it is also apparent that someone at some time trained her. Can't imagine living without her now!!!!
