Maya was surrendered by her owner because of her health issues. When she arrived at Cortez she had a big tumor on one of her mammary glands, was extremely anemic, which required a blood transfusion, and she was diagnosed with Tick Fever. The tumor was removed and she is doing really good.

Here is what her Foster Mom has to say: Maya is very sweet and is my shadow. She is just happy as can be. She's always interested in meeting other dogs and shows no signs of aggression toward them. I have a Jack Russel and a Baja Special. Maya was very interested in the Jack when she arrived because he is the leader of the pack and he lets everyone know it straight out. Maya said "how do you do" and walked away. She comes when I call her, she has good manners in the house and just wants to be wherever I am. I put her in a kennel the first few nights. When I tell the pack it's bed time, I open the front door and they all go out and come right back in and Maya would go right to her kennel. When she came home from being spayed, she had a cone on her head so I let her sleep on her bed outside the kennel. When I leave the house, I put her in my bedroom and she is just fine on her bed but is always so glad when I return. When I need to take care of her incisions, she lets me do whatever I need to. Maya loves, loves balls. When we play pickleball she sits at the gate and is overjoyed when a ball escapes in to the yard. Maya is a sweet girl who wants to be someone’s girl.

Medical: Our vet has suggested medical retest for cancer returning every 3 months for up to a year. Local adoption is recommended due to the cost of possible treatment if needed in the future. If that is a non-issue and you would like to adopt Maya, she is ready anytime.


Before leaving Cortez Rescue, all dogs will be given a full medical assessment to insure optimum health, current vaccinations, and desexed
