Maybelline's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Maybelline's Story...
With a rich layer of eyeliner circling both eyes, it is easy to see how Maybelline got her name. This gorgeous girl has those big brown hound dog eyes that just make your heart melt. When she looks up at you with those eyes and that big smile (yes...she really does smile!) it is simply irresistable. For some reason, this lovely lady ended up on death row at a kill shelter and was literally pulled off the euthanasia list. She was brought in as a stray, and we simply don't know how she didn't have anyone come and claim her.

On top of having looks, this girl has got brains and charm too! She doesn't jump on you, instead she sits patiently for love and attention. She also gets along great with other dogs, as well as cats and children. She walks very well on a leash, and is crate-trained. We are pretty sure she is housebroken, but we haven't had her in foster care long enough to say with 100% certainty.

The perfect day for Maybelline, or "Miss Maybel" as she is affectionately known, involves getting up and going for a nice stroll around the block. Then, she is perfectly content to snoozing on the couch all day. Throw in frequent belly rubs and she is in heaven! Her calm and laid-back temperament makes her a great addition to just about any household.

Maybelline is:
Health checked
Up to date on all vaccinations
Heartworm tested negative (and on prevention)

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Maybelline, a Tampa Rhodesian Ridgeback/Black Mouth Cur dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Rhodesian Ridgeback/Black Mouth Cur for sale in Tampa, or seeking a Rhodesian Ridgeback/Black Mouth Cur dog from a breeder in Tampa.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Tampa 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 Tampa 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 Rhodesian Ridgeback/Black Mouth Cur breeders who help with Rhodesian Ridgeback/Black Mouth Cur rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Tampa paves the way for another one to be saved.
