Pound Girl was her name on the Central Region of the web site. It was about 9 o'clock on a Friday morning when the phone rang and the caller said, 'There is a dog in the pound that's due to be put to sleep this afternoon.' Well who could let that happen? NOT ME. 'Pound Girl' was removed from the pound that morning, renamed Maddie, transferred to Scotland the next day and I collected her on the Sunday.

When I saw her for the first time she was under-weight and it looked like she had recently had pups. She had a fantastic nature but was a little bit nervous. When my kids saw her they fell in love with her instantly.

A couple of months later we got her spayed and that's when the vet confirmed what we had a suspicion about, she had had pups and she had had them by caesarean section, she had scaring on her ovaries. The vet suspected that she had been a puppy farm dog and that they had tried to breed her too early, so she would no longer be cost effective to breed from. They had cruelly removed her identification tattoo that would be why she has part of her ear missing.

It is 5 months since the phone call that changed Pound Girl's life and now she has a loving family home and is an intelligent confident dog that loves to run around on the beach and play with her ball.
