Sweet Maisey Grace is a two to three year old Spaniel/Sheltie or Aussie Mix. She is fully grown and is the perfect size not too small and not too big, currently she is 37 pounds and needs to gain a few more as she was very thin when she was rescued. She loves other dogs, does fine with cats but will chase for fun if they run. She likes to be around people, if you are outside she will happily stay outside but even with all the other dogs outside if she sees you going in she will beat you to the door!
She is super active, can jump very high (could train to be a frisbee dog) and will take a running leap into your lap.
Because of her high energy I would recommend children over 8, she is good with them but may accidentally knock them over with her exuberance.
She walks well on a leash, does great in the car but does not like the crate. She will, and has, pulled a Houdini and escaped on two occasions. She is fine outside the crate, but we do provide her plenty of chew toys as she is still quite puppy-like. We rescued a shepherd mix pup same day who is 10 months old and she plays equally as hard as he does and they sleep hard too!
Speaking of sleep she is really happy to sleep right next to you and keep you warm.
I think this sweetie would do best with another dog and someone who will be home with her frequently as she has a bit of separation anxiety. She loves to play and like I mentioned would be excellent trained for Frisbee or maybe agility.
She has been spayed, updated on all shots is on heartworm preventative monthly as well as a monthly flea and tick prevention and is Microchipped.
Her adoption fee is $225 and she would love a forever home where she will give you many kisses to let you know you are loved.
If you have any additional questions feel free to reach out to Laura her foster mom!
