Update: Mae is staying in foster, so call us at 208-794-0944 if you’d like to meet her.
Hi Everyone! My name is Mae and I’m just about a year old. Yup, that’s right, pure puppy! Just a larger version. I’m a gorgeous girl who is very very sweet, but I need some help working on my manners. I’ve been through quite a few changes in my young life and need to find the person who is willing to take the time and patience to teach me the right way to do things. I’m a smart gal, I just need some direction.
I get along with other doggies just great when we’re all off leash. Cats, not so much. I’ve never met kids, but I bet I’d like them. Probably older kids who can deal with my size and puppyness would be best. My previous mommy took me to doggie day care a couple of times a week and I did great! Wanna know what else? I know how to do stuff! Lots of stuff! I can ‘sit’, ‘stay’, ‘come’, ‘down’, ‘roll over’ and …. Wait for it …… I can wave! What?! See how smart I am?!
I have lots of energy and would love a person or family that would include me in family activities like hiking and walks and who knows? Maybe even agility! I’m high energy and need that energy harnessed in able to be the best Mae I can be. I’d be super okay with structure, training and positive reinforcement.
Here’s the catch with me and other doggies. I have some challenges when I’m on a leash if I see another dog. I get nervous and anxious and don’t act very nice. I don’t mean to be this way, and like I said, I do great with other doggies when off leash, but this is something that my new person needs to be willing to work on with me.
I can also be a little anxious when left alone for a long time. I am crate trained and that helps me to feel safe and secure ‘cause it’s like my own little apartment and safe space. I’ve just been through so many changes. I’m not sure what to make of it all. If kept engaged, given ‘tasks’ and a routine, I just know I can do better. Routine and consistency is good for me. As is lots and lots of fun and playtime!
If you’re looking for a high energy gal that wants nothing more than to be loved and cherished (and included in all the fun and games), I’m your gal. Come meet me!
