Maya is a year and a half German Shepherd Doberman mix. I am putting her up for adoption as I am military and have been re-stationed in Hawaii where I was unable to bring her with me. My wife and I adopted her from a shelter when she was a puppy and have kept her up to date on all her shots and medications. She has been spayed and has no health issues or concerns.
Maya is a fantastic dog and incredibly smart. She is very high energy and athletic, and needs both physical exercise and mental exercise. Her favorite activities are running and playing chase. She will occasionally play fetch but doesn't care a lot for toys.
Maya does very well with women but is leery of men. With a little patience there has not been a man she hasn’t become comfortable around, she just might bark at them for a little while. With children she hasn’t done very well, she is very fearful of some children or ignores them. Given her strong prey It would be important to supervise her interactions with any child but would recommend having her in a child free home.
Maya has a very strong food drive that is great for training but has at time led to food aggression with other dogs but never people. Maya does have a few issues that require a calm confident owner. She can become possessive over her owner when dealing with other dogs, for my wife this made her stressed which will stress Maya out. She does well though when you are confident. For these issues we have worked with a dog behavior consultant with that has helped Maya make process in these areas. She does not respond well to stern corrections but rather interruptions of her bad behavior. She responds well to lots of positive reinforcement which is important to maintaining her confidence level. Please email me if you are interested in adopting Maya (firstname.lastname@example.org).
