My name is Maisie (#3247). I am good with other dogs but take a bit of time to warm up for playtime. I am good at respecting other dogs when I first meet them. I am interested in cats but respectful and, although I like to try and chase them, I don’t get too close. I love kids and all the attention that comes with having them around. I love attention and want to be near my family; however, I am also happy to go lay down and take a nap while my family is in the room.
I am crate trained and quiet in my kennel overnight. I am also completely house-trained. I need a daily walk and some time and room to run off some energy daily. I LOVE to play soccer!
I have been working hard at leash training because “freight train” was my only speed on leash when I arrived from China. I am so much better now but still find myself pulling once in awhile and will need further training to make this fun for both of us! I am also somewhat unsure of strangers, especially men. A quick treat and I make fast friends though.
The best kind of family for me would be one with older children as I bond closely with teens in the house and like their activity level. I need a somewhat active family and with an increase in endurance and continued leash improvement, I will make a great running/walking/hiking partner. Most importantly, though, I think I will make a great family addition.
Adoption fee: $900 plus $35 microchip fee
Maisie is being fostered in the Portland area.
