Meet Miss Maybelle, our brindle bully girl who is full of social graces and southern charm. Maybelle was found wandering as a stray with one of her puppies soon after giving birth. She was in need of some medical care and TLC, but is fully recovered now, and ready to start her new life. Maybelle was initally fostered in a very active home, with two teen girls and 4 other dogs, both large and small, and she adjusted quickly to home life.
Maybelle is bully mix who’s about 2 to 3 years old and has a shorter frame, but weighs around 50lbs. She is an easy going, friendly, good-natured dog who loves people. Her favorite place to be is hanging out on the couch with you. Her foster mom, Carol, describes her as “a sweet little bundle of cuddles.”
Maybelle is a very social pup who will make an excellent family dog. She would do best in a home with kids or another dog to hang with. She loves playing almost as much as she loves car rides and snuggles, but she has a moderate energy level and is laid-back dog in the home…a perfect combo. She walks pretty well on leash, is crate trained and house trained, and her foster family lets her have free roam of the home when they’re around.
If you are looking for an all-around great dog who’s calm but playful, knows the rules of home life, and will be a great companion to your pup or kids, apply to learn more about Maybelle today.

You can also help save dogs like this one by becoming a foster, providing a rescue dog with a temporary home and giving them the love and care they need until they are permanently adopted. Every person who fosters is directly responsible for saving the life of a dog, because we can only save as many dogs as we have foster families available to welcome them into their homes.
