Fostered In: West Midlands
Madge is a 3-year old Miniature Schnauzer who is being fostered in the West Midlands. As an ex-breeder she is very nervous but her sweet character is shining through. She is looking for a home where she has another kind dog for company.
People – Madge is shy and is still finding her feet. She likes to know where her trusted humans are at all times and can be like a little shadow. She is fine with older children but no small, boisterous ones please.
Dogs – Madge is fine with the Cavalier in her foster home and once she is used to walking on the lead we expect introductions to other dogs to go without a hitch.
Cats – Not cat tested
In the home – Madge is well behaved generally, although she does like to rip papers! Toilet training has come along well with only an occasional accident now. She sleeps on her bed or on a sofa and chooses to sleep downstairs and she hasn’t been crate trained. She eats well with if a little messy! I’ve never seen her play with a toy, but they have appeared out of the box a couple of times so I think she will. I’ve left her for up to a couple of hours with no problems.
Out and about – Madge hasn’t yet been out and about that much as it is early days for her. She travels fine in the car and has been to the vets and coped admirably. Lead walking is all new to her as are regular walks but we are confident that she will get the hang of it all in no time.
Type of home – Madge is looking for a kind and patient home where she can gain in confidence and flourish at her own pace. Her family should be around for a lot of the day, but she may be suitable to live with someone who works part-days. Her adopters will need to be patient with her while she adjusts to living in a home and be able to continue the good work started in her foster home. Lead walking will also be a work in progress. Madge will need to live with another kind dog for company who can help show her what living as a pet is all about.
Madge is neutered, chipped, vaccinated and up to date with her flea and worming treatment. Potential adopters will be expected to travel to meet her in her foster home in the West Midlands.
