About Maddie

Adoption Fee: $150
Pit Bull mix
Age: Adult
Sex: Female

Maddie is a special girl looking for a special home! We love Maddie! Maddie came to us after the sudden loss of our dear friend Curtis. Maddie was part of a cruelty case in the Chicago area where she along with a few other dogs were found in a home that also contained dog fighting paraphernalia. It was determined that Maddie and at least one other dog had probably never stepped foot outside before being confiscated. Maddie was a scared girl but had one the heart of a volunteer at CACC who reached out to Curtis and he agreed to take her on. After his passing Maddie was placed with us. Maddie has made huge strides since joining us. Once fearful over everyone and everything she is now opening up to meeting new people and has a pack at the sanctuary she enjoys being with. Maddie had also been labeled dog aggressive and thought to be broken beyond repair, but we are seeing a completely different dog now. She has completely blossomed since being integrated with the pack. Maddie does suffer from PTSD from her past life and will need a home that understands this and won't push Maddie past her comfort zone and will just accept her for who she is. Routine is a must for her. Maddie does well with dogs and needs a home with at least one other dog. She is also cat friendly Maddie needs to be in a home with no kids, their energy is just too much for her. She needs a fenced in yard that is at least 6ft high. Continued training will be a must to build that bond with her new family. Maddie thoroughly enjoys walks and a home where multiple walks happen a day would be ideal. Maddie is a wonderful girl and she deserves the moon and stars. She is around 5-7 years old and 35 pounds Interested in this dog/cat?
