*AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION IN FOSTER* Hi! I'm Meadow. I arrived at the Maryland SPCA after being surrendered at another shelter. My knees were in bad shape and I had to go to an orthopedic surgeon for TPLO surgery. I've been in foster for 6 months while undergoing surgery and recovery. I'm all healed up and feeling great. It's time for me to find my forever home. Since I've been in foster care for so long, my foster mom has lots to tell you about me.
"Meadow is a happy pup who makes friends (both human and canine!) easily. Indoors, she is an easy-going companion who spends most of her time napping. Meadow is still a young dog who enjoys spurts of activity such as walks, games of tug-of-war, and playing with squeaky toys. Outside, she is strong on the leash and enthusiastic about meeting most every person, dog or cat that crosses her path. Walking for at least 45 minutes a day, either on two shorter walks or one adventure walk, allows her to feel ready for her naps and enables her new knees to stay strong. Meadow also loves cats and, while she will take the hint if they are not interested in her, she is very happy when they will let her follow them around or play with them. Meadow is very smart (she is a master at canine puzzle toys!) and is very good at learning routines. She is crate-trained for when she is alone and for night, although she also does fine outside of the crate. She looks to her humans for assurance (via lots of pats) and for reminders to be silly sometimes! In return for the love, walks and attention she is given, Meadow will provide her family with lots of enthusiasm, cuddles and squeaky toy background music. Meadow will do well in a home that is willing to work with her on her leash skills or is okay with a dog that is very strong on a leash."
