Madonna (aka Sydney)

The gals at the shelter asked us to send pics and periodically update you on how she’s doing. Here are a couple of pics of her in her new sweater and bed on the first day we brought her home as well as a pic of her brother Buddy who is always snoozing in his bed. We had Buddy (a mamas boy) for several years and my hubby decided he needed a dog and Buddy needed a friend, so we adopted Madonna.
 
We renamed her to Sydney. My husband loved the name and since she was kept with Sydney, we figured she would respond well to the name. She has certainly done that. She is such a lover and is getting along famously with Buddy. We’ve noticed an extra spring in his step since getting her and I think it is because he was lonely for a playmate. They play and romp around the house and are such a true joy. They go for long walks at night and on the weekends and love to go to my mom’s house and play with her little Yorkie. 
 
Thank you again for all that you do and for allowing us to take home such a precious dog. We will send more pics when we have them and hopefully, she won’t look so scared.
