Maddy had been spotted at a pet shop & sold as a cute little white fluffy puppy, designed to be a lap dog and to live in a small inner city home. But Maddy's real heritage soon came to light, when she just didn't stop growing. Maddy was driving herself and those around her mad, barking & spinning constantly in a small backyard. It soon became apparent that Maddy was a Border Collie mix, and all her energy & intelligence just didn't fit into a small courtyard, so Maddy's owners surrendered her to a local pound.
When Maddy's new family saw her on PetRescue.com.au, they knew she was the one for them. Her owner, Serina, said, "I first saw Maddy online and she looked so sad. She was surrendered to the pound at the age of six months because she barked all the time. She was a Christmas puppy who spent her first six months in a small yard with nothing to do and being a working breed, she began to spin around in a tight circle and barked due to boredom.
Serina & her family spoke to the rescue group and discovered that Maddy would be a great match. "Her foster parents brought her to our property to see what we could offer, and to see if she would get along with our other pets. We then found ourselves the proud owners of Maddy. We can't imagine life without her."
As a result Maddy has become a central feature of the family - balanced & happy with all of her needs met. She spends her days running on acreage, swimming at the beach and comes home to snuggle up for all the cuddles she can take.
