Here she is at five months of age! Apparently she is not going to be large, nor is she small but rather a medium-large size of dog. Just the right size for most people.
Maori started off in our program before she was even born: her mother, a black lab mix, came to us pregnant.
Most of the pups were black, some were black and white, some brindle and then there was this girl. She is the only one with these unique markings
Look at her face. See those black dotted lines stretching across her nose? Now, how neat is that!
Her name was Dingo when she was small.
And there are so many blogs of her too.
July 20th, 2010: At 15 Weeks of age: And again a bit later and again too! And she has been at so many events too: Hot Summer’s Night Event, Downtown South Bend First Friday in August, and many adoption events too.
Not sure why Maori has not been snapped up but I do know the right person will come along and she will have a home of her own.
Meanwhile, this girl is quite the character. She does great with other dogs and with cats. Here is a great story of her and Salvador playing with The Sock!
Maori loves to be outside. She does not bark much but this girl can dig a hole to china! She is getting better but her owners should be perpared. She enjoys toys but especially likes rawhides. She is crate trained and pretty much housetrained but still needs some work in that area. She is playful and loves games. Her recall needs some work, especially if she is in a playful mood. She does not get ornery at all, in fact, she is quite the fun loving spirit. She is quick to learn and a joy to have around.
This girl will make someone very happy.
Medical: She is spayed, micro chipped, wormed, and up to date on shots.
Microchip: Included in the adoption is the registration of the AVID micro chip in the new owner’s name.
Adoption fee: $250
Leash and Collar or Harness: a Lupine brand harness or collar and leash are provided for each
canine. Lupine has a life time guarantee; if chewed, the company will replace it free of charge.
