This ❤️adorable❤️ little lady is Maddie, and before you lose your mind over her cuteness, there’s something we need you to understand. We only know a TINY part of Maddie’s story, and even that is sad. She needs a very special adopter to help her learn to trust again. ⁣ ⁣ Last fall, she was spotted in a McDonald’s parking lot off of 45N. She was a mess! Even though one of our volunteers was able to trap her quickly, she spent the next 4 months refusing to leave her crate. 4 MONTHS. From there it was baby steps - eye contact, tail wags, taking treats. Maddie is still learning to trust and needs a home where she will be able to do that on her own terms. ⁣ ⁣ Maddie isn’t your average poodle. She’s not going to be a lapdog on Day 1. Maybe not even on Day 100. But she’s a fiesty girl who loves to hang out with other dogs, a strong girl who survived goodness-knows-what before she came to us. She just needs a bit of patience, and she’s SO worth it.⁣
