Dalmata Mentés

Maddy – rehomed

15.02.2016. – Maddy and the cats Maddy met cats this weekend. Her foster family tested her behavior and what they found made us glad, too. Having a cat can’t be a problem for someone who is interested in adopting our lovely Dalmatian lady. She behaved very well around the two dog-friendly cats, acted rather neutral towards them. Of course it depends on the cat, too, as a fearful type who tends to run away from dogs could easily tigger the dog’s hunting behavior. So if you are planning to adopt a dog but have cats at home, please, take your time to see whether and how they get along. Maddy’s behavior is already a positive sign.

In fact, Maddy is the ideal dog for someone who is looking for a silent, small-size (16 kg), well-mannered and a little timid Dalmatian companion. She’s definitely not the high-energy, all-time active and boisterous type. However, we have to keep in mind that she is shy and reserved around strangers and needs more time to build trust with her caretakers. We would love to find her a forever family, a home she won’t have to share with other dogs, though it could do her good to have a calm, good-natured, balanced canine or feline friend at home.

10.01.2016. – Maddy needs a forever home
Maddy has changed for the better since we took her to her foster home two and a half months ago. Now all she needs is a forever family.Due to her past there are situations when her shyness shows but in general she is now more open towards people and gets along perfectly well with dogs. She lives an active life, her foster family cares for her very much. They walk her with their own dogs outside of their huge garden every day. Her newest talent is that after observing the other dogs playing with the ball, she started bringing the thrown balls back herself. :)Since the other dogs have a very good effect on her, with their help she started to open up and act as a joyful dog, we would be happy if the family who wants to adopt her already had another happy dog. She’s getting into shape, getting more muscular. She’s a quick learner who has already learned some basic tasks. She is ready to move in with her forever family who will continue training her patiently, provide enough physical exercise and to have a safe haven.

“I have some good news about our spotted one: She is more and more active and demands exercise. In the past two weeks she’d learned the commands: SIT, DOWN and PAW and Lili taught her yesterday to bark a little if she hears the word “Woof!”. She is extremely cute when she begs for food: she shows off all the things she’s learned to get a bite. I think her weight is healthy now, her movements more and more coordinated. Hédi, Nana and Maddy are chasing each other on the meadow regularly, though she doesn’t always get the shepherd dogs’ way of playing. We cared for a year-old mixed-breed Mudi for a week and they got along well, too. Actually, come to think of it, Maddy has been friendly with and interested in all other dogs so far. At Christmas we drove to the grandparents – 180 km to and 180 back in one day – and we took Maddy with us. She was very well-behaved both in the car and at my parents’ place where she met another four stranger dogs. We showed her the chickens, too but she showed no interest in them. We also went hiking to Pilisszentkereszt but I dared not let her off-leash because she was super excited about all the interesting smells.”Maddy needs a forever home!
