Facts about Maya - Adoption Pending

  • Breed: English Pointer/Rat Terrier Mix
  • Color: White - With Black
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
Maya is a Pointer/Rat Terrier (Standard)-mix, female, 2 years of age.

Adorable and endearing, Maya is a good-natured, extremely affectionate, and completely trusting canine who loves people and lives to please. Engaging and sometimes comical, she’s a loyal girl with an infectiously happy, always cheerful disposition, and she combines it with an all-in, entirely upbeat approach to life. Happy-go-lucky, vibrant, sensitive and sincere, Maya craves companionship and close contact, and she’ll need plenty of both in her new home.

Pretty undemanding when her exercise needs are met, she’s an interested and inquisitive girl who thoroughly enjoys her outdoor time, and she needs regular physical activity to stay happy and healthy. Also an intelligent and high-functioning dog who likes to learn, she’ll need plenty of metal stimulation too, and she’ll enjoy and excel in obedience training. This will also be an excellent way to establish a trust bond as well as reinforce good canine manners.

Sociable, well-mannered, and eager-to-please when she knows what is expected of her, Maya needs little more than a loving home complete with a responsible, caring owner willing to provide sound leadership and structure in her life so she can succeed in her favorite role – that of entirely devoted, very hands-on-loving and much-loved family companion.

Maya is best suited as an indoor pet and companion for a home with a moderately-active lifestyle. While she may get along well with a compatible, similar-sized dog she has been properly introduced to, particularly one of the opposite-sex, a home visit and a meet-n-greet with any housemate pets will be required prior to adoption. Maya is comfortable with children in general, but her exuberant puppy-like mindset, if unchecked, might be a bit much for toddler-aged children.

A total-package, outstanding family companion, no doubt she’ll do well in just about any home where children and pets alike are taught to respect boundaries and interaction is monitored as it should be.

Maya is a Monroe SPCA adoptable dog who currently resides at Monroe County Animal Control located at 911 S. Raisinville Rd, Monroe, MI (just south of the fairgrounds). Come meet her during kennel hours Tuesday - Friday, 11:00 am - 3:30 pm; Saturday, 11:00 am - 2:30 pm, closed Sunday, Monday, and National Holidays.

All Monroe SPCA dogs available for adoption at the shelter have an adoption fee of $120.00. This fee includes the dog being spayed or neutered, HW negative, up-to-date on age appropriate vaccinations, and micro-chipped prior to adoption.

About Monroe SPCA

About Our Rescue Group...

Monroe SPCA (Monroe Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) is a 501c.3 tax-exempt, non-profit animal welfare and rescue organization incorporated in the State of Michigan in 2010. Monroe SPCA is governed by all-volunteer Board of Directors.

Monroe SPCA’s mission is to save, protect, and improve the lives of animals. One of the ways we accomplish our mission is by being the leading non-profit organization facilitating adoptions and providing medical care and treatment to homeless animals at Monroe County Animal Control. We are also the leading rescuer and rehabilitator of animals at this shelter, finding and securing placement for some of the neediest and most vulnerable animals with partner rescue organizations (all of them no-kill) as well as through our own network of foster homes.

Additionally, Monroe SPCA, now, also provides every dog at Monroe County Animal Control with basic preventative health care which includes flea preventative, deworming(s), DHPP vaccine and booster, and Heartworm Testing. If a dog tests positive for Heartworm, Monroe SPCA also provides that dog with Heartworm Treatment.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption process starts with filling out an Adoption Application on the animal you're interested in adopting. Once we've received and reviewed your completed application we’ll contact you, usually within 2-3 days (remember, we're all volunteers). Our adoptions are best-fit placements, meaning we strive to ensure a good match for both, the animal being adopted and the adopter.

Our adoption fee for dogs and puppies is $120.00 to $200.00.
Our adoption fee for cats and kittens is $75.00.

Adoption fee includes the animal being spayed or neutered, up-to-date on age appropriate vaccinations, and micro-chipped prior to adoption as well as all dogs being Heartworm negative or receiving treatment for Heartworm.
