Shelter Dog Spotlight: Maya
Last week, I highlighted a shelter dog named Marley who I met at the SPCA of Central Florida. This week, I want to tell you about another adoptable dog I met at the same shelter. Maya is a beautiful pit bull mix who has waited for her forever home for quite some time. Being a pit mix, she is often overlooked by adopters, but is a sweet girl. She was the first one to greet me at the reception desk when we first entered the shelter--since she's a staff favorite, she gets to hang out in the front office for most of the day.
Maya is about 8 years old and is already spayed and up-to-date on vaccinations. She would prefer to be the only pet in the home, although she could potentially live with another dog on a case-by-case basis. Maya already knows many basic cues, and I was incredibly impressed with the work the shelter staff has put into training her.
If you're interested in meeting or adopting Maya, visit the SPCA of Central Florida.
