Do you need help gardening in your backyard? Then Maude is your girl. This very curious lady will want to follow you everywhere, especially if you're working in your yard. She'll help you dig holes if you're planting bushes or cleaning up weeds. She also loves to zoom in the yard and chase tennis balls, and then she's content to snooze in the sun (well, with one eye on the squirrels).

This playful girl loves meeting new people and is so excited to make new friends. She has been around children of all ages and she adores them. When in foster care, she adored the teenage daughter, sleeping in her bedroom every night. During the day, she hopes for tummy rubs and snuggles with everyone, sitting in their laps and resting her head on their chests for snuggles.

A very well-trained girl, Maude answers to "sit," "stay," "down" and "no." And she does not beg for food or jump on furniture or beds unless invited to. She's a quiet girl who does not bark in the house. She could use more training for her leash walking since she's strong and can pull hard when she sees one of those squirrels. At home, she's house-trained and roams the house freely, doing well when her fosters are away.

Maude is an energetic girl who will love a home with an active family. Come meet this adorable girl. Tell her you have a yard and she'll promise to come mow it.
Come meet your new best friend
