Who is the real Madison ? The one I spent time with was not at all the dog her former owner described to us… I decided to play the “nosy little bird” and I got a glimpse at a happy, playful and active gal enjoying her time with a staff she loves…. Madison was “all out”, running after a tennis ball, catching it, jumping on the bench, waiting for orders. She was “having a ball”, such a burst of light and sunshine in her ordeal. Indeed, Madison was relinquished into our care as her family was going through some hardships. She is what is called middle aged but she plays like a well mannered and well brought up youngster. Madison is known to be very playful, affectionate, independent and lived in harmony with children of all ages, played nicely with other dogs and was relaxed around the cats of the house. She is house trained(which we could verify, and she does use the curb..) and well behaved when left alone providing that the garbage is not left out…A precaution to take with most pooches… With me, a total stranger, Madison was reserved, shy, even a little wary. She warmed up as time went by and was fine with my caresses. She accepted a bow around her neck to enhance her natural beauty. Indeed, Madison is beautiful and she has been so well cared for like a pampered pet..She presents herself, here at the care center as a very timid gal. This is not at all what she is….I have seen it with my own eyes….Given a chance, our Madison will brighten your life as your most beloved forever best friend. Ask to meet her soon at the Manhattan Care Center.s a very timid gal.
