Maya is a very special girl and she requires somebody with a lot of time and patience for her. Maya has chewing issues with her 2 back paws. We do not yet know the exact problem as to why she is chewing on her paws but she will have a full UK vet assessment when she arrives. The chewing can range from mild to severe.
One of Maya’s back paws is missing 2 toes however this does not hinder her walking, she is fully mobile. She may need to walk in boots long term, we will not know until she is assessed in the UK.
Maya currently wears a collar to help stop her chewing her paws. She needs supervision to make sure that she can’t reach her paws until her issues are assessed and resolved in the UK. When out on walks she does not need to wear her collar as she will not try to go for her paws then. She is not however enjoying walks at the moment as her feet are sore. When her feet are feeling ok she loves to walk. Her mobility is currently up and down depending on how sore her feet are feeling.
She is not happy with wearing anything on her paws at the moment and if bandaged up she will try to chew them. The chewing is very aggravated and would cause serious damage if she was left to continue. Maya growls and barks at her back paws. When boots or bandages are put on she can sometimes accept them or sometimes growl and not allow them to be put on.
When Maya arrives she will be put straight onto an allergen free food incase allergies are contributing to her issues.
Maya’s personality and behaviour could change when she arrives in the UK. Her paw issues could improve or worsen, we won’t know until she arrives here and this is therefore why we need a fully dedicated and committed carer for her until she has been assessed and fully treated.
Maya is overweight at 24 kilos. This is due to her current medication trials and we would look to reduce her weight by at least 4 kilos when she arrives.
Maya is good with other dogs and has shown signs of being good with children but has not been properly child or cat tested (although when walking past cats on the street while on a lead she has had no issue)
Maya is not spayed
