Meet Madison Madison is one of the friendliest dogs we've met in a long time. We rescued Madison from a high-kill shelter and since arriving on April 10, 2020 she's quickly become a shelter favorite. She has a joy for living and she'd love nothing better than belonging to a family who loves her. Madison is about 10 months old and currently weighs 51 pounds. She's thought to be a retriever mix. She's a bigger pup, tall and lanky with a beautiful, angora-soft golden brown coat. We're not sure what this young pup has gone through in life, but she seems afraid of other dogs and will give chase to cats. She is terrified of children and will shut down, but she LOVES adult people. She welcomes attention and will happily sit with her person. She is an active girl and an active lifestyle would suit her best. She's learning to walk on a leash and she knows how to sit already. Madison is being showered with affection and kindness and every day she grows a little more confident in the scary and noisy shelter. If you're looking for a terrific young dog to welcome as your best companion and make part of your activities, Madison may be the girl for you.
