Madison is a Shepherd/Heeler mix, one or 2 years old and weighing 52 pounds. She came to us from a dog pound. Madison seems to be fine with other dogs and we can cat-test her if needed. She is crate-trained and appears to be house-trained. Madison is very beautiful and outgoing, but also can relax and be a couch potato. She’s been spayed, micro-chipped, heartworm tested negative, current on flea and heart worm prevention as well as all recommended vaccinations. If looking for a great companion, Madison would be the one for you.
