With her beautiful coloring and soulful yellow eyes, Miss Maya is certainly a head turner. Would you just look at those ears! This sweet 14-15 week old hound mix puppy currently weighs about 30 pounds, and we expect her to be 60 to 75 pounds when fully grown. Playful and curious, Maya has become a happy family member in her foster home, and is always up for an adventure or a good belly rub. She is athletic and energetic, and enjoys going for runs and exploring all the smells outdoors with that good hound nose of hers. She loves the attention and activity of the children in the house, and her tail starts wagging when she hears the school bus pull up in the afternoon. She is a confident and enthusiastic playmate who is very kind and protective of her family.
Maya is a very smart little girl, and is working hard on her house training and leash skills. While she is on the go all day long, she does settle down and sleep through the night in her crate. Maya can be shy and tentative around dogs she doesn’t know, but is not fearful and never aggressive. A home with a fenced-in space and a yard with lots of room to explore would be perfect for her and her curious nose. Her size and activity level may be overwhelming for smaller children, and she would do well in a family with children over 8 who can understand and appreciate her joyful enthusiasm. Maya will be a great addition to an energetic household that enjoys spending time outdoors and seeks a loyal, loving and kind companion.
