Maya's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Maya's Story...
If you are over 18 years old and everyone in your household is on board with adopting a dog, please CALL us at 651-645-4370. We do not have an on-line adoption process and sending an e-mail will not speed up the process.

MAYA is a 40# Shepherd/Kelpie X who came to PUP from the Standing Rock Indian Reservation. A Good Samaritan rescued Maya’s mom (Bathsheba, a Shep-Kelpie X) a year ago. He turned her now-adult puppy, Maya, over to PUP this year.

Maya is non-demanding and easy to have around. While she can be playful, she is also happy just hanging out. She is fond of her dog bed, and it doesn't seem to matter to her if it is a tiny cat bed or a giant doggie couch. She enjoys playing with other dogs, although it takes her time to warm up to some dogs. Her favorite games are run-n-rassle and keep-away with a ball. She meets most new dogs well but can be uncomfortable meeting a rowdy or threatening dog. We originally thought she might prefer a similar sized dog if she were to join a multi-dog household, but she is doing just fine with a similar sized dog and a wee one. She is currently living with an 8# puppy and they are doing just great together with Maya showing infinite patience,(check out the video). She eagerly meets new people and loves children. She has not lived with any cats in her foster home but on the reservation she lived uneventfully with several cats (and horses).

She eagerly meets new people and loves children. On walks no one is a stranger and she is eager to meet and greet.

Maya is a calm, loving dog who is endearing and would make a wonderful new family member in most homes, but we recommend an adopter with shepherd or large dog experience as shepherds need a strong leader.

Maya is spayed, heart worm and lymes negative, and is up-to-date on all vaccinations. Her adoption fee is $275. Because of her love of dog beds, one was donated for her to take along to her new home, and it is big enough to share with a friend.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Maya, a Saint Paul German Shepherd Dog/Australian Kelpie dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a German Shepherd Dog/Australian Kelpie for sale in Saint Paul, or seeking a German Shepherd Dog/Australian Kelpie dog from a breeder in Saint Paul.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Saint Paul already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Saint Paul breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even German Shepherd Dog/Australian Kelpie breeders who help with German Shepherd Dog/Australian Kelpie rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Saint Paul paves the way for another one to be saved.
