Meet Maudie

Maudie is the perfect balance of active and laidback. She is a playful, social (after reassurance), stubborn, lighthearted, excitable, happy Frenchie girl who looks to her people for confidence. Maudie has a bit of a shy side at first. She will warm up to new people but does take her time acclimating into her foster home. Mimi (as she is affectionately referred to) takes her sweet time to warm up to people and will look to that ONE special person to be her everything! She is offered positive reinforcement and Mimi soaks that up like a sponge (especially when her favorite treat is involved). Mimi is a simple gal in so many ways… she likes to lounge around in the coziest spot she can find and chew on a toy for a bit (a peanut butter-filled enrichment toy is her favorite)! She has quite the sassy side as Mimi communicates through her little snorts, grunts, and wheezes. Mimi is VERY expressive, and opinionated and her expressions can be very easily read. She will tell you exactly what is on her mind and has a “do what I want attitude”. Like a typical stubborn Frenchie, Mimi believes all high-valued items are just for her and will not share them. She was surrendered to rescue because of her resource-guarding tendencies. Mimi finds value in her food, bowls, kennel, and beds. She will also guard the rooms in which those items are kept. She is very vocal; will attempt to bite and will warn ANY dog if they get too close or move too quickly in those rooms. Mimi DOES NOT guard or respond this way to her humans. She will graciously allow her foster family to move her bowl, take her food and be around her prized possessions. Mimi will redirect with a stern verbal correction (but is visibly upset). Mimi is experiencing a big change as she only has one family in her life. She will need a strong but calm, consistent leader, positive reinforcement, and consistent correction to help her learn proper dog behavior, learn proper dog manners, and know what is expected in her adoptive home. She is smart, a fast learner, and eager to please so we know Mimi will be able to adapt to a new home with the proper leadership! Maudie usually keeps to herself when feeling overwhelmed by the activity in her foster home, often retreating to her crate (her safe space) when feeling overwhelmed and watching happily from the sidelines.
Outside of the home, Mimi is friendly to other dogs and often wants to engage in some play with them. Her beloved home is her kryptonite. Mimi gets along with every human (big or small) even though she can be quite nervous at first. She chooses not to interact with the kids and if loud noises ensue she will seek comfort and retreat to her crate. Due to her resource-guarding tendencies, her foster family believes she would be best in a home with dog-savvy, gentle, children 12 years or older. Maudie was reported to bite at toes in her previous home. Her foster family has not experienced any aggression, bites, growls, or lunges to any human of any age in her home. She has only shown this behavior to other animals in the home (attributed to her resource-guarding). We also feel she will be most successful and NOT have any guarding issues as an only pet. As a reminder, Mimi does not guard her food from humans, does not guard her water bowl, toys, or bones from her people, and as an only dog, we feel Mimi will be able to thrive in an environment that is furry-being free. As with all of our dogs, we recommend slow introductions between dogs and supervision around children when introducing a new dog in your home to make sure both she and they are kept safe.
