Are you looking for a super cuddly and affectionate companion? Then come meet Maura - she would love to be your cuddle buddy! She loves to cozy up to you on the couch and licks her human's face often. She's very mellow when she's not excited, and loves snoozing on the couch, her bed, and the floor. When she's excited, she wants to chew on everything, but mostly her toys!

Maura is still learning the world around her, and she would love to have continued leash training. She gets excited when she sees those crazy squirrels - but who doesn't?! She also seems to do well when left alone. She is still learning what it means to be inside, and she would love a patient family who can continue with her potty training. She is continuing to learn, and she loves the rewards for when she does well.

Maura does great when she meets new people. She can be a little shy at first, but she quickly warms up. She's also a silly pup who is upside-down a lot, and even plays with her cloth rope toy upside-down - it's adorable! She gets excited when she plays and is still learning the playtime manners.

Maura would do best in a home that has patience, and experience training animals because she's still learning the etiquette of how to live indoors. She's happier being a couch potato and would be okay in an apartment or a house without a yard. Come meet Maura, and let her cuddle with you!
