Maeve is one of those dogs that would break your heart. She arrived into the pound with Caserean stitches still in and still with milk for her babies but no pups. She was totally traumatised. She also had a number of wounds, itchy infected skin and broken teeth. She had not had an easy life.
Since coming to A Dog’s life she has recovered fully physically and is now in good condition. Our vets reckon she is about 8 years old. She is very sweet and gentle.
Her foster mum says that having been through so much it is been great to see her mischievous and fun side emerge as she flys by with a stolen sock or her favourite, a glove – loves a thumb! She loves her Kong and food, lots of it and is soo grateful for treats! Her ‘I’m sad’ performance is heart melting and worthy of an Oscar! I think she will need ongoing patience and help with confidence building to finally leave her past behind. She gets on really well with the other dogs and will cuddle up with a warm one! Probably best with a calmer dog or at least one that isn’t overly bouncy and hyper. A guy like that might be a bit overwhelming and knock her confidence.
Ideally she needs a home where she will have company most of the time and would do well with another dog for company too.. She loves walks and investigating. She is crate trained and house trained. She loves to be busy around the garden…. searching for trespassing creatures or treasure.
She is neutered, fully vaccinated and microchipped. If you can offer her a suitable forever home please go to www.adogslife.ie and fill out adoption form.
