Maya is a great dog that loves attention from all humans and is friendly with everyone she meets. She is a smarty pants who knows her basic commands and learns new tricks quickly, especially if treats are involved! Maya can be super active when her family wants to go for a walk or run and can also be a big cuddler when it is time to relax…the best of both worlds! She is very athletic and would likely do amazing learning agility. Maya is looking for an active family to help her burn off her energy through running, playing fetch, or chasing a toy. She would do best in a home with a fenced in yard where she would not need too many walks around the neighborhood. While Maya LOVES people and always wants to cover them in kisses, she is not such a fan of other dogs and would prefer to be the only pet in her home. When she is super happy, Maya has even been known to crack a smile!”
