Looking to rehome our girl, Maizie. She is an adorable 2 year old Great Pyrenees/Australian Shepherd mix (full DNA panel provided). She is very loyal to her “pack” and loves to play – biking, wrestling, chasing, fetch. She is fully trained and knows many commands, like sit, touch, spin, leave it, and more. She is very typical of her breeds, and is high energy with a guarding/herding instinct, but also loves to lay on the couch and get belly rubs. She is so goofy and has quite the personality. She will also be sure to alert you of any people or animals nearby.

Maizie needs a home with no other dogs or cats, no young children, and infrequent visitors. At least 2 adults is preferred. A large yard to run and explore is a must, and a physical fence or tie out is recommended (more rural is ideal, no apartments, please). She has never been around farm animals. She is an indoor-only pet, but loves to play outside.

She struggles with anxiety and can be reactive. We are rehoming her because she has shown aggression on a few occasions (snapping, snarling, growling, and warning bites). Maizie has primarily displayed aggressive behavior toward people if they try to touch her when she does not want to be touched. She will create a strong bond with her new family, but will not do as well around unfamiliar people, children, or in stressful situations (vet, car rides, etc.). She can resource guard high value treats/toys and needs to be traded in exchange for giving something up. She will walk nicely on her leash, especially if treats are provided, but will react when she sees another animal. She is very vocal.

Unfortunately she is not the right fit for us as we will be expanding our family soon and she will not do well with kids. We have worked with trainers and behavioral specialists and have come to the realization that we are unable to give Maizie a life where she can thrive, where she can be herself and do what she feels comfortable doing. We would love if someone who is more experienced can give Maizie the love, compassion, and patience she deserves. She does not get into any trouble and is extremely smart and trainable, just needs a low-key lifestyle.

Maizie is fully spayed, microchipped, house broken, and comes with all the supplies you could need – crate, bedding, collars, food, toys, and more if desired. She is around 50 lbs and up to date on all vaccines. We are heartbroken to let her go and would love to receive updates on how she is doing. We adopted her from HSHV when she was only 3 months old.

If you think you would be a good fit for Maizie or have any further questions, please let us know. We are more than happy to go into further details or plan a video call prior to a meet and greet.
