Labrador Retriever / Pointer / Mixed (short coat) Dog

Maeve the Dog needs a home


Maeve (pronounced May-vee) aka Sassy Pants is a super sweet girl that was found as a stray by Monroe Animal Control. She was at the shelter for several months, terrified, before being taken into rescue. We estimate her to be about 5-6 yrs old and 65#. Our best guess at her breed is lab/pointer.




We suspect Maeve was an outdoor dog previously - she didn't seem to know about stairs, phones, toasters, car rides, etc. She was also much more comfortable outdoors than indoors for a while. We are working on getting her more used to household living and she's doing great! She is crate trained, which is used whenever she can't be directly supervised.


Maeve is a bit shy with strangers, but loves treats and will become your BFF once you feed her a few times. She likes to play with toys (especially squeaky toys!) and chew bones. Her favorite time of the day is meal time - she actually tap dances for her meals she gets so excited!




Maeve was heartworm positive when we got her but she has been treated and is doing great! She's expected to live a normal, full life (on monthly heartworm prevention, of course!)


Maeve can be a bit dog selective - a laid back male would probably be the best fit for her. (Don't worry, we will do introductions before finalizing anything!) We do not recommend a home with cats. Maeve has not been around young children to our knowledge, and due to her quiet personality we are recommending a home with older (12 yrs +) children.
