Mazie – Female. Briard/Terrier Mix. DOB: 1/28/11. 50lbs.
Mazie has never experienced the touch and love of a human and because of this isolation, she is unsure and finds it hard to trust.
Her beautiful amber eyes express her desire to be loved and part of a family. She’s come a long way since arriving here. She follows her kennel mate, Neptune, around and has discovered that humans are okay. Mazie has begun to trust a little and is now willing to let the staff approach her. She is more readily able to let someone put a leash on her and take her for a walk. Mazie now enjoys a good brushing and will even roll over on her back and look you right in the eyes. Even shy dogs with a painful past learn that people can be good and life can be wonderful.
Mazie doesn’t particularly like to ride in a car. She is house-trained with a doggie door and gets along well with friendly, well socialized dogs. She will do best with a patient, affectionate owner who will take special care with her. The potential adopter should expect to have numerous visits with Mazie at Living Free in order to establish a bond of trust. With time and love, Mazie will come out of her shell and be the wonderful companion that is part of her sweet nature.
