Mavis is a very gentle and sweet girl! She's a little shy but quickly warms up as she gets used to her new surroundings. Mavis walks very well on a leash and doesn't react much to passing other dogs or people (though sometimes passing bikes surprise her!). She just loves taking a pleasant stroll on a warm day.

Mavis also loves exploring around the backyard. She sniffs everything and seems to really like being outside but will follow you back inside when she's ready to get out of the Texas heat! She spends the rest of her time sleeping on armchairs or at her foster's feet, and she loves belly rubs, during which she makes cute little grunting/snoring noises.

She has done well when being left alone, sleeping quietly and happy to see her human friends in the morning. She'll most likely quietly stay in the same spot napping while you're away.

She'll be a treat for anyone looking for a calm, gentle, and sweet best friend. Come meet Mavis today!
