Meet Maize, she is a beautiful #40 shepherd mix. She was found as a stray so we do not know her exact age but out veterinarian estimates she is around four years old.
Here is what Maize's foster mom has to say about her:
The first things I noticed about Maize are:
1. She loves our other dogs. She especially loves our hound Charlie. They walk together, sleep together, lounge near each other, it's very heartwarming.
2. She is very shy around humans. This girl must have had painful experiences at the hands of humans. She will duck from your hand when you reach out for her. We are working with a professional trainer to overcome these fears. We will also pay for our trainer to come to your home for a consult.
In order for Maize to thrive in her new home she will need another dog. If you are looking for a friend for your current dog but worry that your dog will become jealous Maize may be the perfect addition to your family, as she does not beg for attention.
In fact she prefers to sit and watch her humans instead of being hugged, kissed and coddled. She is house trained, she goes into her crate nicely when I leave for work, she walks nicely on a leash and she is not much of a barker. Overall she is very easy to live with.
Despite Maize's obviously painful past I see her tail wag when I come home, a light in her eyes when I hand her a new bone to chew, and an overall relief of being in a home when she sprawls in the middle of the floor for a nap. She will be a great companion, she just needs a family who can be dedicated to working with her so she learns that humans can be loving.
