Maya is a spirited, high energy, cute as a button in your pocket pup. She is an Australian Shepherd mix and has a soft red merle coat with copper trim. Maya is about 3 years old and weighs 25 pounds - a great size for her big personality!
Maya bonds quickly with her person. She is a little shy upon first meeting strangers but warms up quickly. She is learning frisbee and retrieving at her foster house. With other dogs, she is more of a "peaceful coexister" in that she likes them, but would prefer to play with humans rather than other dogs. She is a very smart girl and has thrived in her foster home learning new commands. She has already learned: Sit, Down, Stay (with wiggles), Wait, and about 10 other commands! Maya is still working on her leash manners (she finds it hard to resist tugging on the leash), but will master them soon. She does have some springs in her feet and would make a great agility or flyball partner! She even will hop in and out of the bathtub when asked. She loves toys and has a high toy drive for training, but regretfully, does need a home without cats. She has also quite nearly mastered her housetraining and doesn't mind being crated when needed.
Maya's ideal family would be active, fun-loving, and have children over the age of 12 and maybe another dog for her to pal around with. She wants to be someone’s whole world and would love someone to shower her with attention! She would excel with a human to call her own that is looking for a high energy play partner. She does require a secure fenced yard. If this super cute, happy girl sounds like a dog you'd love to bring home, please apply on our website at www.sohodogrescue.org
