Hi! I’m Madison. I’m a 2 year old, black GSD and I weigh about 65 pounds. I’m a sweet girl and am getting over my shyness quickly.

I’ll need an adopter who will help me as I get to know my new people and new surroundings. I would also benefit from a family who will do things with me to help build my confidence. I need a lot of exercise, as I have high energy and need the outlet. If you're looking for an inside only companion, I'm probably too much dog for you.  I can go on a 5+ mile hike no problem, the more the better.

Something you should know about me is that I like kids and other dogs and while it takes me a few seconds to warm up to women, it may take an extra minute or two for men and I now follow my foster dad everywhere and nudge him for scratches whenever I'm not roughhousing with my foster brother, a 4 yr old lab.

My leash skills are lacking but improving, and if you walk me 3-5 times a day I'll learn quickly.  I've been around goats, construction sites, jackhammers, and numerous people and dogs, and I'm getting really comfortable in this new and exciting world. Dog school is sure to help me learn the skills that all lucky dogs know and help build my self-assurance. I know only a couple commands, but am quick to learn and am very smart!

I like treats but so far have not really shown interest in playing with balls or other toys. I love playing with my foster brother, but be prepared that I can bark loud and run around all crazy when I'm having so much fun!

I’ll do best with a family who will have time to spend with me and who understands that I will need time to adapt and to feel comfortable with all of the wonderful changes in my life.

I’ll be waiting with my foster family in Mill Valley.
