Maya – 5 month old female Belgian Shepherd Cross

Maya is a 5 month old female Belgian Shepherd Cross. Dogs living in scrapyards in Cyprus is quite common as they provide places of refuge for dogs among the discarded items, and the owners of the premises think thieves are less likely to steal things if there are dogs present on the grounds. That said, they are rarely cared for adequately and they often end up in shelters when they’re exhausted, dehydrated and starving.

Two females that had recently given birth were caught recently and were linked back to a local scrapyard in an industrial estate who said they were happy to surrender them into proper care. They also advised that both the dogs had had puppies, and it would be better if the shelter could take them on too as many of the pups had died from snake bites and heat exhaustion without proper shelter and safety. Only of four of them were left.

The pups joined the shelter and it looks as though their dad was probably another well known scrapyard dog in the area, a Shepherd who’s extremely difficult to catch and is, unfortunately, not neutered. The pups are a mix of Pointer and Shepherd and will be medium in size as adults. They are smart, active dogs and are looking for semi-rural homes outside of the city where they can enjoy the outdoors. They have not been around children or cats, but they can be rehomed with other active dogs.

Maya is a gorgeous girl who is confident, friendly and happy to socialise with anyone and everyone. She loves to chew on a deer antler and gets on really well with both the puppies in the shelter and all of the adult dogs too. She knows when to engage in play, and when it’s time out, and she loves being fussed over by the shelter volunteers.

Maya definitely has prominent Shepherd genes and will need homes who are dedicated to training from a young age. She will be an active adult who will need energetic lifestyle, and she will definitely need a home with a garden. Maya hasn’t been around children before but we think she would do well in a home with slightly older kids. She hasn’t been cat tested, and due to her energy levels we think a home without small furries would be better for her.

In the right environment, pups like Maya can make incredible companions and wonderful family dogs, but the time, energy and effort involved in raising a puppy should not be underestimated. If you’re interested in adopting a puppy please get in touch and we can assess your suitability.
