Age: 7 y/o | Size: 12 lb Poodle-Maltese | Gender: Female
Maya is a cute and playful 7 year old, 12 pound Maltese mix. She is a happy and bouncy pup who loves playing with her toys. She will fetch them, chomp on them, and then flip them into the air in delight! Maya loves attention and enjoys snuggling up with her person for belly rubs. She is good in the car and enjoys going for walks. However, if Maya sees another dog while out on a leash walk, she gets super excited and will bark and pull trying to get to them. She would do best having a fenced in yard where she can run around and play freely. She is active and curious and will follow you wherever you go with her tail wagging!
Maya has some allergies and is on a special food and supplement, which she is doing well on. She enjoys her food and does not like anyone to bother her while she is eating. Maya will also guard her toys and treats sometimes, but will trade out easily for other treats or food without a problem. Maya will not be placed in a home with children because she is protective of her things. She has had basic obedience training and will follow commands for treats. She is a smart girl who is eager to please.
An ideal home for Maya would be with a stay-at-home person since she loves spending time with her family. She gets along with other dogs and cats after an introduction, but would also be fine being an only pet. She barks when new people come into the house, so a home where there is not a lot of new people coming and going would be best. Maya is housebroken as well as pee pad trained so you don’t have to go out at night or in the rain. She may have an accident initially in her new home until she learns the routine though.
Maya has been spayed, microchipped, and is up-to-date on her vaccines. She will need an owner who is willing to keep her on her special diet so her skin and coat stay healthy, as well as someone who can work with her protective nature.
