That big pink tongue and those big brown eyes—she’s not just a pretty face, but she is very pretty.
Her gaze meets yours unflinchingly, because Middie so wants to please and she is cued by anyone providing some direction. The poor girl had a serious bout with pancreatitis a couple of months ago that caused her to lose a lot of weight, but she is looking very much like her former, cheery, playful self now that she has recovered.
Middie was adopted briefly, but unfortunately was simply “a little too much dog” in a home with a 4-year-old. She did not growl or nip, but the young, exuberant Middie can be a clumsy clown at times and her short-lived adoptive family sung her praises as a good dog who did nothing wrong but regretfully returned her.
Still very much a puppy herself, there is really nothing very middling about Middie. She is not middle-aged and not mid-sized. She is young and going to fill out a bit according to a recent vet visit. Her playful exuberance is definitely maxi rather than midi!
She is a smile-maker when you watch her run and swoop. Middie is a real character and a lot of fun to spend time with. For all those families looking for a dog that will play fetch, Middie is a great choice. For kids older than 6 or taller than a yardstick, Middie would make a great companion.
For an athlete, regular walker, jogger, skater or biker, Middie is the perfect choice as she is fit, tireless, enthusiastic, cooperative and loving. Pretty Middie does not want to spend another period of time in a kennel and she does not deserve to either.
When Middie was at the shelter previously, she roomed for a while with a couple of other equally energetic dogs and got along fine, which bodes well for any family who would like a companion for their active dog. Middie is well-suited for an athletic life, running or jogging with someone and reliably returning “fetched” balls lobbed by anyone who loves the thrill of watching a retriever do her thing.
Come meet Middie in the middle and you will get maximum affection in return.
