Maddie is the best dog ever and was adopted by Michael (and then partner Jon) in 1992 at the San Francisco SPCA. She was taken back there by the first family who adopted her because she was too needy. Maddie was a bit stressed at times, and loved to chew herself. She got fatter and lumpier over the years and had a very grey face in her old age. She loved to be loved, and would paw you for attention and even grab on to you with both paws at times. She spent the last few years of her life in North Carolina.
