Meet Maple

Meet Maple! This pretty girl originally came to our rescue 2 years ago when we rescued her from a Riverside Shelter. She is now 4 yrs old. It was immediately apparent that Maple did not come from ideal circumstances. She was extremely fearful of humans. When approached she would run, yelp and scream to try avoiding being touched. She had stress patching and wouldn’t eat dog food out of a bowl, however, she knows exactly what people food is. She was placed with a great foster that helped her work on trusting people. Slowly she began to gain confidence and progress into such a good girl.

Once she had some progression and easier to work with Maple was adopted. We were so happy that she had a home that could accommodate her. Through the years of regular pictures and videos she seemed to be living her best life with her family. She was going on trails with horses, camping, swimming in her pool and keeping all the kids and dogs quiet and in line at her house. She grew to be a very independent dog but seems to dislikes loud noises, people arguing or anyone touching her without her permission. Unfortunately, due to extremely unforeseen circumstances, Maple ended up at the Riverside Shelter at the end of October. We pulled her as soon as the shelter would allow us to but it was still over a week and Maple became stressed and scared again.

Maple was taken in by a new, temporary foster home to help her decompress and gain trust again. Although the shelter was hard on her she was definitely showing that she had progressed greatly throughout the years. Her current foster has allowed her to become independent, trusting and even playful and loving at times with her person. She still is not a fan of being touched without permission, being picked up or touched on her ears.

We recommend a home with children 12 or older. Due to past trauma she does not like leashes, collars and harnesses, and therefore doesn’t go on walks. She enjoys her space, her treats, her blankets and her person. Once she finds her person she will love and protect them for the rest of her life. She is currently using potty pads inside, is crate trained and enjoys the sunlight and following her person around.
