Meet Maze

Maze is looking for an adoptive home after being found starving. She is estimated to be somewhere between 5 and 7 years old. Maze is spayed, housebroken, and crate trained. She has transformed as she recovered from a frail and shaking bag of bones to a spunky, ball-loving, affectionate and happy dog with a sparkle in her eyes. Shy at first, Maze prefers that you come down to her level to meet. Once she is comfortable with you she will proudly show off her ball catching skills (she even tosses the ball to herself) or gently give you her paw for a handshake. She loves being brushed and fussed over, leans in for love, or crawls into her foster mom’s lap for a good cuddle. Maze is a calm adult dog who is past her puppy shenanigans. She’ll chase squirrels or bark when she’s excited for meal time, but besides that she is a very well mannered dog who is content napping in a cozy dog bed near her person.

At some point in her life Maze had a person who cared for her, taught her manners, how to give her paw, catch a ball, and taking her for some basic medical care. Maze seems to have had some negative experiences, however. She is fearful of men and prefers a slow introduction. She is non-reactive on walks to other dogs, and is learning to play with her foster sisters! Maze does have kidney disease, but our vet is confident that it can be managed with proper diet,

We are hopeful there is a special person willing to take in Maze. She is a resilient girl who deserves to live the good life. Maze’s new owner will need to lead with a kind hand, ensure her belly is always full, and a warm bed at night.
