Oh Maya - she is so funny and a complete sweetheart! If you are familiar with Boxers, you can picture how you'll be greeted. Her entire back end, including her stubby tail, wiggles with happiness.
She's 5 so is considered a senior, but nothing senior about her. Great energy, playful, and very good on leash walks. As far as she's concerned, the longer the walk the better! Maya is perfect in the car so she can join you when you are out and about.
Maya is a strong girl and may be a bit too enthusiastic when first meeting another dog, but she is smart and will respond to positive corrections from her humans. She's not much of a barker, but is a good watch dog. She's well behaved in the house and is crate trained and can be left alone for short periods. She will be a great addition to a family or a single person who will enjoy her antics as well as her desire to be close to the ones she loves.
