Maple is a bright-eyed and alert 1 year-old Beagle/Mountain Cur mix spayed female who came into an overcrowded rural county dog shelter as a stray. When she wasn’t claimed, she went into a foster home for a couple of weeks before coming to Canine Lifeline to find a new home. Her initial foster family found that Maple was wonderful with women but very fearful of men, particularly if a man was standing over her. As a result, Maple would be most comfortable in an all-female household or with a quiet mature couple who will be patient with her as she gets used to the male in the household. Maple loves other dogs so would do best in a home where there is another dog to play with and to show her the ropes. Hopefully, having a dog in the home that is friendly with men will help Maple realize that she doesn’t have to be fearful of them. Once she’s comfortable with someone, Maple is extremely friendly and affectionate. She’s a clown when she plays and loves to be very silly. Maple has done well in a crate so should be able to pick up the housetraining rules in short order in her new home. She’s a delightful and very attentive little dog who will make an excellent companion for someone who understands her fear of men and gives her the time and space she needs to feel comfortable in a new environment. Maple weighs about 26 pounds and her adoption fee is $250. She’s spayed, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea and tick preventative, and microchipped. All Canine Lifeline adoptions come with a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email if you’re interested in Maple.
