Mya has found her forever home. This was her story...

She is a super sweet and gentle girl.

She is wonderful with men, women and children.

I have taken her to the dog park daily and seen a great improvement in her social skills with other dogs. At first she was really nervous of dogs sniffing her and would run away scared barking at them. Now she is much more confident and happy to interact with the other dogs. She at times still doesn’t understand the dog body language and barks and runs away at some that simply want to play with her, or she sometimes tries to play with those that obviously don’t want to play. But she is learning and her personal growth is wonderful to see.

She is needy for attention and should ideally be with someone that is home a lot for her. She barks when I leave and I believe has separation anxiety issues, but lately I have also noticed an improvement in her that way as well as now when I return home she seems happy and content, no longer worked up and anxious. Although part of that may be in part to having a good relationship with my boy Pyr Misha who is confident and so easy going. I hope his calm demeanor is rubbing off on her.

She is a barker and natural guardian, but does stop when you tell her to. She is light boned, and solid white. When she is happy her whole body wiggles and she smiles to. So cute. She will let you take bones, treats, toys and food away from her without any issue. However she is protective of her food at dinner time around my other dog. She growls at him and a few times even went after him when he goes near his own bowl. I have been working on her regarding this and it is improving, but it is a slow process. She does have allergies, not sure yet what they are, the poor girl chews her feet and scratches her face. I hope to get it figured out so it can be fixed for the poor girl, but in the meantime a simple dose of Vanectl P seems to alleviate her itch.

She likes to sleep with you in your bed. I personally don’t allow that, but every once and a while I’ll allow her some snuggle time on the couch which she gladly obliges to. One of her favorite things to do is go between your legs if you are standing, this is comforting for her and she enjoys a back rub while there. Men beware, she has bumped hard with her nose in that area to get you to open your legs for her to go thru. It’s a funny little quirk, but apparently she was taught to do this when coming inside so that her paws could be wiped down. She knows, sit, come, down, off, shake paw. (Stay we are working on.)

Mya is super sweet and loves being a good girl. If you can provide her with lots of time and love she'll love you so much and be your shadow and best friend.
