Meet Miss Maybelle, our brindle bully girl who is full of social graces and southern charm. Maybelle was found wandering as a stray with one of her puppies soon after giving birth. She was heartworm-positive and needed some TLC, but is now on the mend, has completed her heartworm treatment, and is ready to start her new life. Maybelle’s being fostered in a very active home, with two teen girls and 4 other dogs, both large and small, and she adjusted quickly to home life. Her foster mom, Alicia, says that she’s an absolute pleasure to have in their home.
Maybelle is bully mix who’s about 2 to 3 years old and has a shorter frame, but weighs around 50lbs. She could stand to lose a little of the baby weight and has been described as pleasantly plump, so her foster family is watching her calorie intake. She’s a very laid-back pup inside the home, but outside she likes to play with the other dogs. She walks pretty well on leash, is crate trained and house trained, and her foster family lets her have free roam of the home when they’re around.
Alicia describes Maybelle as a very easy going, friendly, good-natured dog who loves people. Her favorite place to be is hanging out on the couch with her people. She loves attention and sharing affection, but is not needy. She’s really just an awesome dog who is going to make some lucky family so happy.
If you are looking for an all-around great dog who’s calm but playful, knows the rules of home life, and will be a great companion to your pup or kids, apply to learn more about Maybelle today.

You can also help save dogs like this one by becoming a foster, providing a rescue dog with a temporary home and giving them the love and care they need until they are permanently adopted. Every person who fosters is directly responsible for saving the life of a dog, because we can only save as many dogs as we have foster families available to welcome them into their homes.
