Maddox & Lucy #VanLifeDogs
I remember the first time I laid eyes on this dingo.
I had decided I was getting a puppy the night prior.
A female (because I thought all male dogs humped everything in sight). Small to medium sized dog so that she could easily adapt to apartment life.
I had been wanting a doggie for some time but now that I was living on my own, so why not?
I made it to the #GreenvilleHumaneSociety ready as ever to be a fur-momma.
I opened the door where all the pups where and at the first kennel, all I saw was ears.
Two large, pointy, orange red ears shooting right up towards me.
His name was Maddox and "he" was an American Dingo, only 3 months old and barely had the face to justify those enormous radars on his head.
He seemed rather timid, only giving me the notorious puppy eyes but didn't come toward me until I reached out for him.
I was instantly drawn to him but alas, he was a boy and he was going to grow into a not so small pup that would molest my whole living room.
So I kept making my way around the room, saying hi to all the other puppies that were eager to have a forever family and although they were all perfect and adorable, something kept bringing me back to the red dingo.
I flirted with the idea of coming home with the exact opposite kind of dog I had set off for and decided to see how that might just work out so I asked to take him to the one-on-one room and feel this "Maddox" out.
Needless to say, he knew what he was doing and I clearly didn't because 6 years later, here we are, attached at the proverbial hip.
He stole my heart that day and gobbled it up just like any proper dingo would.
