|Breed (mixed):||Yorkshire Terrier / Maltese|
Maya is a 1 year old female Yorkshire Terrier / Maltais cross, spayed and up to date on shots. She is a moderate energy level.
She needs a patient home that will give her the time and space to become comfortable and feel secure without undo stress or pressure as she is a very nervous, shy girl.
Although she is very shy and nervous at first and wants to snap when anxious, she is affectionate once she knows you. She is nervous of big dogs but independent with small dogs. She runs away from sudden movements, and will jump and step back with loud noises. If you grab her, she wants to snap. Her owner surrendered her because she snaps at the granddaughter.
She pulls a little bit on the leash and does not know any commands, so we think she just does not know what is expected of her, which is why a supportive patient home is just what she needs to blossom.
She moves and sniffs around in new environments and is ok with physical manipulations if she knows the person.
If you can offer Maya the type of home she needs, please contact Brenda at firstname.lastname@example.org
