Maya is a 4 1/2-year-old American Pit Bull/Chinese Shar-Pei mix. She originally came to the Arizona Animal Welfare League on March 1, 2012, and then adopted exactly a month later. She was then returned to AAWL earlier this year when it was found that while she is very social and loves the dog park and other dogs, she isn’t a fan of living in the same home with them. Maya is a very shy girl and it takes a while for her to warm up to any new human friend, but once she does, she has a way of stealing your heart and making you fall for her.

Little brown Zoey is definitely all puppy, full of energy and so happy just to be alive. Curious about everyone and everything and just an awesome little girl. She even still has that wonderful puppy breath. She loves going on outings, car rides and chasing after toys, leaves or birds, etc. Zoey is a petite little girl with a big heart full of love and ready to open it up to anyone willing to give her a chance. She is a great little shopper as she demonstrated on a recent trip to Pet Club, checking out everything on the bottom shelf but never once taking anything in her mouth. She is a joy to be around and will bring a smile to your face and everyone she meets. Zoey loves other dogs so a home with another canine to romp with would be nice. Her forever family must be one that is ready to give her guidance and show her right from wrong. She is not completely house trained and needs some work on that, but she is a very smart little girl so she will master this in no time.
