Labrador Retriever

Hey there! My name is Maddie! I’ve had a pretty hard life, and I think it’s time for me the enter retirement! I’ve been a mother of many litters, and let me tell you, I know the hardships of motherhood. Feeding the children, cleaning up after them, keeping the entire house clean, and even doing the dishes are no distant work to me! So you see, if you’re reading this and you’re a mom, we’ll discover a connection immediately! WE can complain about all the hard work we do day in and day out. WE can relax aside the beach together, get some sun, and look good for that next barbecue! WE can be best buddies! And I also know how hard the father works too, and because of my appreciation for him, I will provide the both of you with everlasting kisses, hugs, and some loving! I have truly been enjoying my relaxation time, because my entire life has consisted of endless work! But I still have a small portion of puppy in me, so I have the capability to make you giggle with my outrageous tongue wagging! I absolutely appreciate any and all social times, and can take a pettin’ for days! Get that spot underneath my chin and my tail will wag faster than light itself! Find that perfect spot on my belly and I’ll plop to the ground and immediately lie on my back and stick these majestic legs in the air! Every staff member knows who I am, because they always let me run around the office! They say I am one of the best-behaved dogs to ever enter this establishment! Will you be the one to let me run around in a home forever? I need someone to guide me straight into happiness for the first time ever. If you do that, I promise I will always be by your side, and will always show you the gratification you deserve.
