Since then her “mom” Susan said she now weighs 65 pounds, the ideal weight recommended by Dr. Bolynn. (Speaking of Dr. Bolynn, we have it on good authority that Maya is a top Doggy Day Care attendee.)
The Corbetts were previously parents to a Labrador who passed away in 2013. They had no plans to bring home another companion right away, but they decided quickly when the time was right they would adopt.
Jeff and Susan visited the Guilford County Animal Shelter with plans to bring home a different dog. But they noticed Maya cowering in the back of her cage. As soon as the cage was opened she lay on Susan’s feet.The rest of the story is history! While Maya loves to chase balls and run like many dogs, she is also a very loyal companion to Susan, who has Lupus. Maya has become very protective, and has a very good sense of when Susan is sick and will stay by her side and cuddle in bed.
Technically Maya is considered a rescue dog, but her owners think otherwise…”We didn’t rescue her, she rescued us”.
We’re thankful for Maya, as well as all the pets that enrich our lives so very much.
