Madison is a very sweet and affectionate girl. She is pretty mellow and calm, and loves to give kisses and to get attention. Her hind legs are limited in mobility due to her severe back problems. She absolutely must have shoes on to protect her back feet from scraping as her feet drag. She also must have wall to wall carpet, or a walking trail of area rugs and/or indoor door mats placed in the house so she can safely maneuver around. She is able to use the bathroom herself, however due to hind end weakness she can easily fall, so she ideally needs to be monitored when using the bathroom. She loves meal time and treats for snacks. She loves to sunbathe when it is not too cold and not too warm. She is a light sleeper and does get up if a noise wakes her. She enjoys taking short walks (about a half mile) and does so using a dog cart which is the only way she can take walks. Her ideal home is one where she can be monitored and assisted with her mobility, as her care is pretty time consuming. She’s a love, though, and so worth it.
