Rescue Story
Maya is just under a year old, a female Jindo-mix, rescued from the Hwaseong Dog Farm.

Ideal family
Maya would love a house with a yard, to get outside and play or a family who is willing to take her out for frequent walks would be good - walking around a quieter neighbourhood with a park suits her just fine. A home with other dogs might also be fine with her, but it takes her some time to start playing with other dogs. It would be better if dogs in the home were calm and chill, rather than being too proactive about approaching her.

With humans
Maya also typically does not seem to want to approach people first. She is also not interested in children - but this is partly due to her experiences before she was rescued. Given what we have seen of her nature, with time, she will be perfectly happy fitting in with the family herd.

With dogs .
Maya is not terribly interested in other dogs when she meets them outside - she ignores them, but she doesn’t appear afraid or try to back away - it’s more like they’re a nuisance to her. In some cases, she has become friends with dogs she met at home, and after this first meeting she will socialize with them without any issues.

With cats
She’s never been in the same space as a cat, but when she sees them outside, she always wants to chase them. We don’t think it is aggressive, and we don’t know what will happen if she gets close.

Energy level
Maya needs to go for walks at least twice a day, and she can run around and play for an hour or more. She loves it when you use her favorite toys when you play with her - she will want to play forever, but when you ask her to stop, she seems to understand and will calm down.

She sheds a lot, as is typical of jindo mix. She tends to bark briefly when a new person enters her space, but this will stop.

Needs help with
She's afraid of men, likely from past trauma - she is not aggressive, but will show fear and will back away from them.

Health Specifics
There are no specific issues, but Maya is a picky eater. This may be due to her character, rather than any stomach issues. You may need to give her time to adjust to a new home, and experiment a bit with her feed. Her vaccinations are almost complete, and she has not yet been spayed.
