SPECIAL COVID NOTICE: We realize that many of you are home from work right now and adopting a dog seems like a great idea. Which, it may be! Or may not. Please think about what your life will be like once things go back to “normal.” Will you have enough time each day to dedicate to a dog, based on the dog’s individual needs? If you are looking for a dog to socialize with kids, other dogs, etc., please do not submit an adoption application, as we do not recommend that for any dog. Nor do we recommend dog parks or dog daycare. Visit the resources section of our website for more info on those topics.

Please note that none of our foster homes have children, so we have no idea how any of our dogs would do living in a home with kids and/or if they would enjoy it. None of our foster homes have cats either, so if you have a cat and are looking to adopt a dog, we can send you info for slow introductions which will require separating a dog from your cat for some time.

As for Maddie:

Who’s the happiest, bestest dog in the whole wide world? Is it Maddie? Is Maddie the happiest, bestest dog in the whole wide world? Yes she is!

This adorable, wiggly, sweet girl is approximately 5.5 years old and weighs about 65 lbs. Maddie is that perfect energy level – up for a nice walk or hike but also perfectly content to snuggle on the couch. She is also wonderfully house-trained and perfectly crate-trained. In fact, Maddie’s foster parents have fostered A LOT of dogs over the years and she is by far the most well-behaved foster dog they’ve ever had. Maddie walks well on-leash and keeps her foster parents laughing with the way her butt wiggles every time she sees a person walk by. Maddie is also completely non-reactive to other dogs, even when they are barking and lunging toward her.

Maddie was surrendered to a local shelter when her family became homeless. She spent 7 long months at the shelter before MABB brought her into rescue. We are amazed that such a wonderful dog was not adopted sooner but we are committed to finding her perfect forever family. If that could be you, please note that the first step in our adoption process is to complete an application on our website: www.midatlanticbullybuddies.org. Maddie is spayed, microchipped, and vaccinated.
