You’ve heard the saying “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure”?  What if it’s another man’s dinner?  For poor little Maddy, that was the case just a little over a month ago.  Though she was down on her luck, and literally eating trash and roadkill to survive, the stars aligned for Maddy when she happen to dart across the highway right in front of a good samaritan.  A good samaritan that just so happens to have been rescuing, sponsoring, networking for, and fostering dogs for years.  She’s what you might call a hero.

Maddy was taken to the vet where she got all checked out and received a clean bill of health.  Maddy has now been spayed, is current on all of her vaccines, and is on a much healthier diet than trash can surprise.  All in all, Maddy is as healthy as she can be!

But how is she you ask?  Maddy is as sweet and loving as can be!  Her good samaritan is fostering her where she lives with her three permanent dogs, and Maddy loves them all.  And kids.  And cats.  And the mailman.  And, well, Maddy loves everyone!

Maddy likes to curl up in a little bitty ball and snuggle.  She also loves to sunbathe.  And of course, she loves to be right next to you, giving you all the kisses you can handle.  I have met Maddy a couple of times, and I can honestly say she is just as sweet and gentle as they come.


I know I’ve said it before, but dogs’ ability to forgive and forget never ceases to amaze me. Maddy was once someone’s dog.  We know this because she had on a hunting collar and has obviously had at least one litter of puppies, if not more.  At only about two years old, without even taking into consideration the condition she was found in, she has had a rough life.  Yet she is just as loving and trusting as they come.


Aren’t her eyes beautiful?  And that coat!  You really do have to see it in person to fully appreciate it.  And she is so petite too, she only weighs about 30 lbs.  Maddy is just a beautiful dog, inside and out.

  1. OH what an angel… How wonderful for all of you to work with her, rescuing her from such a tough time. Where are you located? I see FL in the address, and I did a quick search — Tallahassee?

      • Maddy will be at an adoption booth from 11-3 tomorrow (this Saturday) at the Naturally Healthy Pet Store on Thomasville Rd in next to Red Elephant in Tallahassee! She would love to meet you!

  2. Morgan I just saw this. Thank you SO MUCH for the kind words. Maddy says she really appreciates it and next time she sees you she would like a big hug please!
