Maya is a stunning beauty! At 11 years old, she weighs 50 pounds. Maya is a Siberian Husky. She does well with other well mannered dogs, having spent 8 years of her life going to doggy daycare every day. Her people tell us she has not lived with a cat but has only been curious about them when she has visited other homes with cats. She does not seem to want to chase them-which is good!

Maya’s been alright with children in the past, sharing her home with kids as her owners have had them but recently she nipped at the 4 year old child in the home. For this reason, her owners would like to find a home Maya without young kids. Maya would be happier living in a home either without children or with older kids who will be mindful of her space and be gentle to her.

Maya appreciates her daily walks. She is fortunate to get out with a dog walker for a walk with a group of dogs on a daily basis. We are told she will pull with a new walker so a harness will help Maya stop that behavior. On weekends her owner takes her for a one mile jog when the weather is cool. Maya loves the snow!

When Maya’s people are away from the home, she will stay in her crate. Maya can manage quite a while before she needs a potty break.  Before being adopted to her current family, Maya’s former owner taught her to potty in the bathroom; that was about 10 years ago when she was a puppy. She has since been taught to potty outside. Since the arrival of the children in the home, Maya has tried to potty in the kids’ bedrooms. This has been remedied by keeping their doors closed.

Maya has been known to get into bed with her humans but she will usually move to a chair in the living room or try to find the coldest place in the house to sleep. Maya can manage stairs at this time. We are told she does “almost no” barking! Maya sounds like a great dog. She has just come to the point in her life where she doesn’t appreciate a home with busy kids. We bet she will thrive in a quiet household with other friendly canine companions and adults for her to devote herself to for always.

Maya is located in Seattle, WA. for contact information please email: referrals@olddoghaven.org
