Mara - in Maine!
Posted April 2018
This beautiful girl is Mara, and she is the mom to the "Star Wars" puppies (luke, Leia, Han and Yoda) who came to us last year and all got adopted, she also is the mom to pretty lady Kelsey who just came north with her. All of them have done so well, we are just so happy that Mara was able to have heartworm treatment and come north. She is loving life in Maine and her foster family recently took her to the beach for her first time at the ocean!
Mara is very sweet with people and does well with other dogs , especially if they are calm and respectful. If they are too “in your face” she may ask them politely to back off. When Mara first came into our southern partner rescue she was very sick but in spite of it all was a great mama to her newborn babes. She has already proven that she is a fighter!
Mara doesn’t need to be crated at home but while you are getting to know her it would be a good idea to be sure. She hasn’t had a lot of experience with cats but when she did, she was a chaser so we think that a feline-free home would be best, but another dog would be great for her. She can be a little nervous when her people leave, or even try to use the bathroom in peace ; 0 )
She is 5 years old and about 48 lbs. Mara is very quiet, and not a big barker. She doesn’t play too much with toys yet but loves to sleep with her foster mama. She is housetrained, crate-trained and does well on a leash. At the beach she was on a long lead and had fun meeting all the new people.
If you hae interest in Mara or any of our cuties, please fill out the adoption application. There is also an FAQ document at the bottom of each page of the site with additional info about adopting, fostering, and getting involved with our rescue.
