Maddie and Ditka are mother and son and very bonded to each other. Their owner is moving and cannot take them with her. As much as it breaks my heart to think about them losing their home, it is what it is and we must look forward. We need to find them a home together that cherishes them and will keep them forever. Maddie and Ditka are up to date on shots, tested heartworm negative, spayed and neutered..

Maddie, 11 years old- 12 in June, is a German Shepard/Mastiff mix. Maddie is a great companion dog. She loves to lay on your lap and be petted. She enjoys being outside and laying in the sunshine, watching the moves of any birds or squirrels in the yard. She is a very obedient dog, who listens when called. Maddie is very instinctive in nature; she is always by your side if you are upset or sad. She also is very timid; she won’t attempt to go through a door unless it is open. She spends most of her day just relaxing and enjoys playing with her son, Ditka.

Ditka is a 7-year-old mix of German/Shepard/Black lab. Ditka is very carefree yet will let you now when someone comes to the door. He can seem intimidating with his bark, but he is a gentle giant. He loves to come up to you and place his paw in your knee indicating to pet him. Ditka loves to run and can cover a lot of ground quickly. Ditka is very laid back, he even eats is food laying down. Ditka spends his day watching out the front windows or laying outside in the sun. He can be mischievous and will try to get into the garbage can if it isn’t shut.

Both dogs are very sweet and loving. They play well together, and both will alert you when someone is present. Once they know someone for 5 minutes, they will sit next to them waiting to be petted and will continue to stay by their side. Both dogs have been around children and other dogs with no issues.

Will someone please adopt Maddie & Ditka and give them a true forever home? $150.00 adoption fee for both dogs.

All animals see a vet for shots and normal exams. If they appear healthy and there are no obvious health concerns, then extensive testing is not done. This is normal procedure for pet rescues and shelters.
Waverly Pet Rescue puts a lot of money into medical care for each dog and cat we take in. $350 is the average cost for basic care. This does not include if the animal had an injury, required extra flea / ear mite treatments, or needed extra days at the vet office.
