MAYA is a beautiful, female, black and tan, short-coat GSD, around 3/4 years old. Poor Maya has been treated to a hard life, as when she was found she had a collar mark on her neck. She was probably she living tied to a chain and was abandoned on the beach in a very lean and dehydrated state and in big pain! She was taken immediately to the vet and the same day she had surgery because she had a big hernia. Happily, now Maya is totally recovered, she is very intelligent dog and she has already learned to walk on lead, with no pulling.
Despite her bad past, Maya is now nicely confident and very loving with us, but still reserved with unknown people. She is little bit suspicious and not confident with new people, but she understands quickly if she can trust someone and then is very relaxed around them.She still doesn’t like to be hugged with both arms, as we think she feels threatened and she reacts, but not in aggressive way, only she makes you understand she doesn’t want it. 

Maya is a high- energy dog, she needs a lot of activity and exercise, she loves her walks and is eager to live her new life. Maya needs an experienced Shepherd owner who can be with her a lot of the time, as she is not happy being left for long. A retired couple or homeworker would suit her best. She gets nervous with cats, but is friendly with dogs, and we think children over 15 years who know not to hug her. Maya will make a fantastic companion for an experienced owner who can teach her to trust, with patience and love.

Her Best Points :

Loyal, attractive, doesn’t pull and loving.

Adopting A DogWatch UK Rescue Dog

Before being adopted, dogs will have been vaccinated, wormed and treated for fleas.
If old enough they will have been neutered, if too young the new owners will need to ensure this is done.
All dogs are microchipped
All new owners can apply for 4 weeks Pet Insurance  FREE, to be activated from the link on our website.

All new owners will need to change their new dogs microchip information to their contact details. This costs £17. If you would like us to arrange this for you, at a reduced rate of £7.20, we will ask you to do a bank transfer to allow us to register the change.

For Rescue Dogs coming from overseas

This adoption fee is a contribution towards the costs of rescuing the dog including
– microchip, pet passport, vaccines, tests for South European diseases, neutering (IF OLD ENOUGH), parasite treatment and transport to the UK.
We can not home dogs from overseas to people who work full time or long hours, unless some sort of doggy day care is offered. They need someone at home a lot of the day, they are not used to being alone for long periods. A dog walker for an hour out of the day is not enough.
Leaving dogs a long time on their own means they are highly likely to develop separation anxiety which is distressing for them and everyone in their new home.
