Hi friends! My name is Maizie, and I am one of the biggest lovebugs you will ever meet! I absolutely adore being with my people and soaking up all the attention and affection I can get. I have a sweet and submissive personality, and have generally medium energy - I am happy simply being by your side and my ideal family will include someone who is home often to spend time with me, but I can be more perky and energetic when I am ready to enjoy some playtime. My favorite activities include long walks (I have great leash manners!), relaxing outside, playing with toys and bones, and going for car rides. I am dog friendly, but I prefer fur friends who are lower energy because overly enthusiastic doggos stress me out. I have been friendly and playful when meeting human kiddos, and would do best with older ones because I might jump up for a hug and wouldn't want to accidentally knock over one of my pals. Even though I previously lived outside before coming to Fetching Tails, I am making great progress on potty trained and am almost fully there. I am currently undergoing heartworm treatment and will need to stay calm for a few weeks while I recover; my Fetching friends will be glad to explain my recovery in further detail, but it should be easy peasy since I know how to lounge and relax with my people when I need to. Hurry up and fill out an adoption application soon, we have a lifetime of love to get started and I cannot wait to join your family!
If you'd like to adopt this dog, please get started by filling out a complete application (incomplete submissions cannot be sent.) Please note that while we take time to learn as much as we can about each dog in our care as possible, our bios are written from current observations. Though we do our best to share as much information as possible about each dog we care for, we are unable to make any guarantees on the future health or temperament of your adopted dog. Most dogs in our care come with unknown pre-rescue history, and information pertaining to breed and age are often educated guesses.
When you adopt a dog, you're not buying a pet. Your donation isn't a fee for your adoptee - it's a gift that helps us pursue our mission, save lives, and ensure we can provide care to all the dogs in our program.
