Maya lived on the streets for over a year, evading the pursuit of animal control and people in the neighborhood in east Oakland where she was living. Finally, several neighbors worked together and were able to catch both Maya and her boyfriend Max. Maya was overwhelmed at the shelter and so we stepped in to help her find her forever home. She’s a shy girl but once you earn her trust, she’s a happy pup. Maya loves other dogs and should only go to a home with a confident dog who can help her learn to trust people. She’d probably do better in a quieter environment with people who have the patience to help Maya blossom and fulfill her potential to be an amazing, loving girl.
Maya is an approximately three year-old Dutch Shepherd mix, who weighs 65 pounds.
