This gorgeous 5 year old, freckled face redhead joined our foster family in May and has been an absolute pleasure to take care of since then. As with most rescues we do not know a lot about her past life; all we know is she was picked up by the North Texas Humane Society as a stray and no one came to claim her.
She is extremely shy and timid, perhaps the result of being neglected or mistreated or simply being abandoned by someone she loved, but she is slowly coming out of her shyness and once she gets to know you there is a solid bond and she will follow you like Velcro.
She has just undergone Heartworm treatment and is doing great; she is so laid back and quiet that the prescribed 4 week rest period the Vet requested is no challenge at all. She also was treated for a Cherry Eye and will require eye drops twice a day for the rest of her life.
Maisie gets along great with our other rescue and learned to use the doggie door within days of being here, even with a cone on her head! We are not sure how she is around small children, but my guess is she will be more comfortable with older children who will not scare her with unexpected loud noises or rough play. She walks great on a leash and gets excited at feeding times; she loves her food and her treats.
We would love to find this gorgeous girl a permanent home; one where she can be cherished and loved and cared for the rest of her life. Since she is still recovering from HW treatment, it will be a few weeks before she will be ready for adoption.
