With significant, gorgeous brown eyes and a smiley experience, how could anyone say no to this 2-calendar year-old Labrador Retriever combine? Charming Maya is just a single of the hundreds of pups that made their way to the Arizona Humane Culture in January as injured strays.

The lovable pup was taken care of in AHS’ trauma clinic for slight wounds and a pup cold prior to becoming adopted. Sadly, Maya observed her way back again to the shelter a next time after her adopter’s landlord nixed the plan of owning a pet in the home. This is a fantastic reminder to ensure to do the proper research encompassing adopting a furry buddy prior to building the motivation.
