Madame is an obedient and smart medium sized pup. She has excellent leash manners and she loves going for any length of walk or hike, stopping to sniff along the way. When she isn't out strolling with her foster parents, she loves to spend time napping and chilling in the backyard. Madame travels comfortably in the car and will split her time between watching out the window and laying down in the back.
She is treat motivated and very gentle when taking them. She loves anything meaty, cheesy, or fatty. She is very smart and answers to her name. She knows “come here”, “sit”, “stay”, “touch”, and excels at the “go find it” games with high value treats. Sharing a house with two other dogs, Madame is good at taking turns and not aggressive toward her foster siblings.
Madame, like many rescue dogs has had a troubled past. We think Madame was abused by a previous owner, and as such, she has a difficult time trusting strangers. Over the course of the past ~1.5 years in foster homes, she has made profound progress. She does still show signs of reactivity when someone unfamiliar reaches toward her. While she has never bitten someone, she makes it very clear when she feels uncomfortable.
She has made incredible progress from her early days when we saved her, and we know with time and the right family she will continue to warm up to humans. Madame has spent time around other dogs and in a foster home with school aged children. Due to her occasional reactive nature, she is not recommended for a home with younger kids.
Madame is spayed, up to date on vaccinations and microchipped. To meet or adopt Madame, fill out an application and a volunteer will contact you shortly.
