Hi, I'm Maddie. I’m adopted!
Border Collie Mix | Adult | Female | Medium
Maddie is a leaner, a licker and a lover. She is happiest lying at your feet, no matter what you’re doing. She enjoys riding in the car, with her head out the window. She chases balls, and brings them back… but doesn’t drop them. (We’re going to work on that!)
She wants very much to play, and can be rather insistent with dogs that aren’t up for a romp. That can lead to playground spats, so her new family will need to keep an eye on her introduction to and interactions with other dogs. She seems to be better with dogs her size or smaller.
Like many border collies, Maddie is very vocal, and has a bark much larger than her size. She uses it when she wants something, and when her people leave her alone. She loves meeting people, a little too enthusiastically at times, but is ready to chill with you once the greetings are over. Come chill with her!
