"Hello! My name is Maple. My life's work is to greet you with unmatched excitement and cuddle you relentlessly.
I can play independently, but I love human and dog attention so much. My favorite outdoor activities are wrestling and laying in the sunshine. A fenced yard would be ideal, but I won't run away. I do love to run after small critters outside though. I love to chew, but I don't chew anything other than toys. I walk well on the leash (I could be great, I just don't have much practice). Car rides are awesome and I behave very well during them. I do well with dogs, indoor cats, and older kids. Part of my greeting process is jumping, but I'm learning to not be too rough. Thunder makes me nervous, but being near you makes it all better. I know simple commands and am well behaved around food. You can leave a bowl of food and I will graze rather than scarf it down - unless it's wet food! Also, I need sensitive stomach food or there will be gloopy poops and toxic farts! :) Speaking of poop, I'm house trained! I like to have company when I potty and to be able to take my time.
I would love to be your new best friend; solo or a member of the pack ❤️"
Maple has been with us for a year now and has struggled to adjust to our lives before and after our baby was born. We have tried everything we can think of to care for her in ways that help her. We have realized that we are not the best family for her. We want her to be loved in her love language (cuddles, quality time, and company more on her terms). She is in perfect health, allbeit a hefty hippo of about 60lbs, and microchipped (will need to be reprogrammed to knew humans). She is due for her rabies vaccine as 7/22.
