Jeremy (Madison’s Adopter/Dad):

So as many of you may know, Maddie was born with a brainstem entry and she does things a bit goofier than most dogs. Has an itch, doesn’t care about the itch anymore, forgets about the ball, tongue out, just kind of vibing. And then she sees a couple dogs run by and she’s like, Ooh, yeah, I’m excited I can join this. And we think with that she has a little Doggy ADHD!

<Laughing> “You’re looking at?”

Abigal (Madison’s Adopter/Mom):

If anything, it makes her just a little goofy.

Rocky Kanaka (Animal Advocate):

It’s possible that her injury has affected her way to see.

Abigal:

We think she has vision impairment. They refer to it as “Doll Eyes”, like she’ll look like she’s looking up, for example, when she’s looking at you.

Jeremy:

So kind of nail that home as that she does that prancing and I think she’s elevating her like front legs enough just because she might not be sure what’s there.

Rocky Kanaka:

As happy as Madison is, she was almost overlooked at the shelter.

Abigal:

When we adopted her, they were like, “we have to hold on to her because there’s something wrong. We just don’t know what though”. They kept her for about four weeks and we went to pick her up after they did the MRIs. Their best guess was that it happened during the birthing process and really at that point they were like, “we don’t know. We don’t know what to expect. We don’t think it’s gonna impact her based on the 12 weeks that they had known her.”

Rocky Kanaka:

But throughout all of that, Madison kept on smiling eventually finding her way to both Jeremy and Abigal.

Abigal:

It was really sad for some weird reason on a boy puppy and my mom’s like, “No, you have to come see this other dog”. And there was Madison all by herself in a room. So cute. I absolutely fell in love with her disposition, everything about her.

Jeremy:

It was funny because my first impression was with both of them and it’s been the same ever since. It’s so easy to just be like starstruck by her because she is like who you wanna be in life! She is so happy. Her tongue’s always out. You can literally just look at her at any time and she’s either adorably sleeping or her tongue is hanging out and she’s flopping around with her ears going crazy and yeah, my first impression of her was nothing but this is the happiest moment in my life. <laugh>

Rocky Kanaka:

Now Madison is spreading joy on social media, swooning others with her infectious positive energy.

Jeremy and Abigal:

If we had a dollar for every time someone said “That’s a happy puppy!” we would be rich. Oh yeah, because everywhere when we take her to parks, restaurants, on walks, on hikes…

We have so many people just blurting things out or asking us like “She’s so happy! Like, does she have a fun day today? Or like, does she always look like this?” Different little things like that.

You can’t help but feel happy when you’re around her.

Her way to like brighten other people’s days and then brighten our day in return too, to have someone else smile and appreciate that and be able to experience that as well is is amazing.
