MAYA is a darling 6-year-old border collie/Australian cattle dog mix. Like her border collie ancestors, she bonds strongly with her humans, loving to snuggle up, follow you everywhere, & roll on her back for a belly rub. Like her ACD ancestors, she loves to chase a toy (& probably any small, moving creature like a cat) & do silly butt tucks around the yard. She has a stocky body & when she jumps, it's with all four feet in the air!  Did we mention adorable?  

MAYA loves people & she has learned to be respectful of the other animals in her foster home with the exception of a bossy female border collie. Sometimes she will look at another dog with an overly keen eye or even posture, but a quick "that'll do" or "leave it" puts a stop to any temptation. So, MAYA would probably do best in a home with a male dog or a home in which she gets to be the only dog. 

MAYA has learned to walk on a Martingale collar/leash. She is crate-trained and has never had an accident in her foster home.  She loves to go on "puppaventures" in her foster mom's van. She will enjoy continuing to learn new things, & she is very treat-motivated.   

MAYA is micro-chipped, spayed, heart worm negative and on preventative, and up to date on vaccinations.

MAYA is being fostered north of Sacramento.
