I know Madge through my place of work, not only do we offer lodging but we help rescues when they don't have homes, that's how Madge came to us. She was in bad shape, and had obviously been used for breeding, and probably fighting at some point, and we think she might have mange, the poor dear. After about 2 months of being with us, she also developed the 'kennel krazies' or 'kennel rage'. However, about a week ago, she calmed down; we began bringing her into our sales office-she was like a whole new dog! All she wanted was to be cuddled. She's stubborn though, training basic manners has proven to be a task, but she's slowly getting it (we think she never had any type of training at all). If she weren't picky with what dogs she gets along with, I'd foster or adopt her in a heartbeat, she's such a sweetie and I love working on her training! One day I know she'll find the perfect home. The stigma attached to this breed and similar is ridiculous, Madge has been through hell and back and still loves people, they can be wonderful dogs-or awful, it's all in how you treat them.
