Meet Maria!
This little gal has traveled from Ohio in search of her forever home. Maria was an unclaimed stray who’s previous owner did not care enough to spay her and therefore, she ended up having multiple surgeries to remove mammary tumors; which, thank goodness were all benign.

Maria’s favourite thing in the whole world is food. She eats with enthusiasm and never leaves anything behind in her bowl. She loves to hang out in the kitchen and always scoops up any food that may of dropped off the counter. She loves treats; however, you need to watch your fingers when treating her!

Maria seems to know her name when you call her. She is a talker and will come to you to try and instigate a conversation. During the day when her foster family is out of the home, she is in her crate. She runs to her crate in anticipation of her little kong filled with peanut butter. She is quiet in her crate and has no accidents.

At night time, Maria is very happy to sleep in a large chair beside the master bed the entire night. She uses a pee pad through the night or first thing in the morning; however, she prefers to have a quick visit outside to do the remainder of her business in the morning. She seems to be house trained and she does require that she goes outside for all other bathroom breaks throughout the day.

Maria’s foster home has discovered that she is interested in toys. She will bring them to you to show you her prize, but she does not want you to take it from her, she simply wants you to give it a little pull and talk to her. Maria is an independent girl; however, she does enjoy cuddles on your lap and a little belly rub.

Maria is good on a leash and enjoys a small walk each day. A fully fenced in safe backyard would be a bonus for Maria; but it is not necessary. Maria would do best in a home with no other animals. She is not willing to share her food or treats and wants her humans to herself. She is social with other small dogs during walks, but is nervous of large dogs.

Maria is a social and nosy girl that wants to meet and greet all visitors that come to the home. Visitors need to be aware that they cannot reach out to quickly to touch her as she is nervous of quick hand movements and needs some time to trust new people. Due to this, Maria will need a home with no children (under 18).

Maria has made great progress since arriving in her foster home. If you are considering applying for Maria please understand that applications that have previous dog experience, patience, endless love, no children or other animals are a requirement for this little girl.
