Maddie is a one year old black Lab mix who came to CILRA after being found as a stray in an Illinois town. She weighs 60 lbs and is a cute bundle of energy once she gets to know you. At first she may be shy but with patience and sweet talk she will soon warm up to you and loves to get “snuggly”. Maddie walks well on a leash with a harness. She likes getting in the car for rides and takes the shot gun position in the passenger seat. Maddie can be vocal and will elicit some barks for attention and when she wants to go outside. Maddie prefers to be in her own home and with her own people and takes a little bit of time to adjust to a new situation or meeting new people. A home where she is the only dog would be helpful for her. She is OK with some dogs and not others. She will bark at first in these situations, then stops. Maddie would like a traditional fenced in yard and a family to love. She is fostered in Ft. Wayne, IN.
