Maddie Schnoodle

Maddie was rescued by police officers who caught her previous owner in the act of stabbing her. She has been badly abused and couldn't use her left back leg, as she had an old fracture and her muscles were atrophied. Still she was trying to run away from him. She was taken to a shelter and was spayed there, even though she hadn't emptied her bowels in a while. She was rescued and taken to a pet hospital where she had FMO surgery and treatment for Sarcophic Mange. Regardless, Maddie was sweet and kind to everyone willing to give her a bit of love.

We went to visit her daily at the pet hospital and volunteered to foster her. Of course, we fell in love with her and we bonded almost immediately. We have been doing physiotherapy and hydrotherapy for a year (which she hated!) to help her recover the use of her leg. Maddie has been doing a lot of progress; she is actually doing so well that she now is able to stand on her back legs and look over the fence!

Maddie is now part of the family as we adopted her. On top of everything she had been dealing with, she was also heartworm positive and she had Sarcophic Mange. She had to go through heartworm treatment twice as the first one was not done correctly. We switched to a new vet and he got it right.

She is now living a disease free life, and runs like a pro on her 4 legs and is our joy! She is the sweetest and most faithful and reliable giant. She is a very affectionate girl and loves her siblings. Whenever she feels something is not right, she protects her siblings, furry and human bravely.

Her favorite activities are to chase squirrels and go out for her daily walks with us. She also enjoys car rides.
