Adoptable Dog of the Week - Maizy

If you love big dogs with big hearts, this adorable gal has a lot of love to give! Our Adoptable Dog of the Week is Maizy, a 3 year old Great Pyrenees from Louisville, Kentucky. She is spayed, up to date on her vaccinations, and fully vetted to go to a new home. Maizy can fit right in a family with multiple pets as she gets along both with cats and dogs, but she hasn’t had the chance to be tested around kids.

Maizy’s Tale

Maizy is your typical Great Pyrenees in all but in size – at 75 pounds, she’s considered to be a smallish, petite representative of the breed. Still, she’s a big dog and that’s something you need to be aware of before adopting! Loyal to a fault, affectionate, and somewhat of a gentle giant, this gal will shower you with love. At her foster home, she always follows her humans around and jumps at every chance to get on the couch for some belly rubs and quality cuddle time. She’s still opening up, and can only get sweeter and more affectionate from here! 

A playful, kind-hearted spirit, Maizy would thrive in a family that would provide love and guidance, and understand the commitment a large breed dog tends to require. She gets along great with other dogs and wouldn't mind a canine sibling (or a few) in her new family. While she does tend to chase kitties a bit if they run, she’s not aggressive – she just wants to be a part of their adventure – and loves spending time with felines, so a family with cats is also OK. Maizy hasn’t had the chance to spend time with children since in her foster home, so there should be a meet if you have kids – but having in mind her size, it’s best if the kids are a bit older.
