Hi! My name is Remembering Madison I'm named in honor of all the homeless pets waiting for forever homes in animal shelters and those who didn't make it out. She arrived north on 9/23 in search of a new family. Is that you? Click here, here, here, and here to see me in foster care!

Remembering Maddison just arrived to her foster families home. She is a Velcro dog and wants to be with you wherever you are at. We don’t like to say she is housebroken, but there has been only two accidents in the first 24 hours in her foster home. She is still very much so a puppy and would chew on socks if left unattended. She sleeps quietly in her crate all night and is in her crate while her foster family is at work during the day without any accidents. She is very loving, but needs to learn confidence/boundaries from her family, due to that she would be a flight risk in an environment where there are loud spontaneous noises such as a busy city. She’s cautious with new experiences and new people, but warms up quickly when realizing she is safe. She has only been with us since September 23 and is just now starting to settle in. The more we learn about this young gal the more we will update her profile. Stay tuned.
This dog tested positive for heartworm disease before arriving to the rescue. The disease was treated while in foster care. Heartworm disease is transmitted to a dog through a bite from an infected mosquito. With monthly preventatives, the disease is completely preventable.

All adult dogs, cats, and kittens are altered prior to adoption. Puppies too young to be altered at the time of adoption must be brought to our partner vet in Ashland, VA for spay or neuter paid for by Operation Paws for Homes by 6 months of age. Adopters may choose to have the procedure done at their own vet before 6 months of age and be reimbursed the amount that the rescue would pay our partner vet in Ashland.
This dog's bio is based off the experiences of the foster and/or volunteers of OPH as well as any information that we received from the shelter or previous owner. This is very important because it means that while they may act one way in the foster’s home, you may experience something different in your home.
