MEET MADDOX…a precious,  apx 4-5 yr old, tan/black tips, Poodle Mix, a little bigger than your average lovebug at 22 lbs.  Maddox hails from the Orange County Shelter and as soon as I saw his adorable face, I didn’t care how big he was!  He also isn’t aware than he’s a little bigger except when he’s sitting on your lap and it may not be big enough for him!  When you look into his happy eyes, and he gives you grateful sweet kisses, you know that he’s a wonderful dog!  Look at his smiling face!!

Maddox is great on a leash and really loves his walks.  Very receptive to other dogs and gets along with everyone.  When he first arrived at his foster home, he was a bit unsure and a little clingy — but it didn’t take long for him to join their four dogs in the zoomies!  Once he realizes he is safe, secure and loved he will be your perpetual shadow and lap warmer! Within a week at his foster home, he learned to ask to go outside (but we never guarantee at your house)!  With all the changes from the shelter, to rescue, to his foster home and ultimately to yours, Maddox will need an adjustment period to settle in, but once he has, he’ll be a happy-go-lucky cuddlebug — when he’s not playing fetch, asking for treats or showing his love and affection!    The ideal family will have a yard for him to romp in, a lot of time to give him the attention and love he needs.   We have learned that Maddox, while good with other dogs, wants to hog all the attention for himself and can get a little jealous of other dogs trying to get to “his” human.   The right home for him will have his human around a lot.  He doesn’t have separation anxiety but he does want to be with his person/people.  Nobody is home 24/7, so a canine pal would be the perfect ticket for Maddox, if it’s the right pal!  

Does your home sound like one that Maddox could call his own?  He’s eagerly waiting!
