Alone and scared. Left to fend for themselves. Can you picture leaving your 6 month old out in the wilderness alone? Well that is exactly what happened to Maizie and her siblings. Maizie was found at 6 months old abandoned at a sawmill. How long she had been there, we will never know. She was starving and dirty and so scared. Since coming to us she has warmed up to people and does great once she's familiar. She desperately wants to play and get loves... She loves to run around and explore the world. She was abandoned at the most important time in her life, let down by humans. Now it's time we earn her trust back. Maizie will need puppy training as she is still a puppy and will need patience as she adapts to her new life. Maizie will do great once she finds that special person/family that will show her love and patience as she grows and learns more about the world. She will be a great family dog. Is that family you? Can you be the one for her?
