Shelter Staff made the following comments about this animal:
Maya is a perfectly sized stunner who has tons of love to offer! She’s just not going to show you right away. In fact, she is extremely nervous when you first meet. Her kennel is her safe place, and it’s clear she’s not too sure of the outside world.

Once she settles in the playpen, she will take time to inspect her surroundings. Maya prefers you keep your distance during initial intros, but the longer you spend time with her, you’ll see her start to relax. Eventually, she’s fine with a little petting.

Because of her shyness, Maya didn’t reveal a lot about her personality, but she wasn’t successful in hiding everything. She exudes gentleness. She is polite when she takes treats, and her lovely golden eyes are soft and tender. She wants to love and wants to be loved, but her current environment prevents her from letting us know the real Maya.

But that’s an easy fix. She needs an understanding soul to take her home and love her. And that will take away her fear in a heartbeat!
