Meet Maddie

Addie and Maddie were saved off death row in a high kill Texas shelter. The 1 year old Rhodesian mix sisters could barely walk from old back leg/hip injuries that didn't heal correctly.

Fast forward a few months with medication (carprofen), CBD Oil and joint supplements and these girls are almost Bionic! Addie has now been adopted.

Maddie for a very specific home due to their background. She is great with people once she gets to trust you. Little apprehensive of strangers and their intentions at first. Remember, these are dogs that came from living on the streets and having to fend and provide for themselves. She has a taill that will wag for hours!

Ok now the real stuff that you need to know about Maddie. She is also pretty crafty and a 5 or 6 ft chain link fence is a breeze for her to Houdini out of (trust me I know .. I said they were now feeling bionic remember LOL). No other small animals (cats, chickens, rabbits ect).

She would be happiest with a large, wide open area to spend her days laying out in the sunshine. Lots of acreage and a wireless system / electric fence may be ideal for her. She also needs a building that allows access to 24/7 that contains heat in the winter and A/C in the summer. She has no fur and can't spend the winter outside, period, end of sentence.

We don't ever adopt our dogs to be outside dogs, and it is the same with Maddie. We want them to be loved family members, but also know what will make her happy as well, so we may be looking for the impossible, but I hope not. I hope in time with the right family she will be comfortable in a home .. but I understand she may never get there.

Maddie is up to date on vaccines, spayed, heart worm negative, on preventions and micro chipped. She does ok on leash and in the car when crated. She is about 40 lbs currently and will stay medium sized.

Maddie is currently located in Tennessee and the adoption fee is $150 each The first step in our process is submitting the application. We are happy to set up a meet and greet once an application has been approved. If you would like to adopt Maddie please fill out our online adoption application at .
