Long summary:
Introducing Mayu, a delightful one-year-old cat-friendly petite German Shepherd mix with a heart full of love and an adventurous spirit! Mayu's name beautifully represents her gentle and soothing nature, making her the perfect companion for your family. If you're seeking an all-around amazing dog who can adapt to any environment, from the beach to the city to the mountains, then Mayu is the girl for you! She's even been to a drag brunch!

Mayu has already attended obedience classes and has mastered her commands with flying colors. Sit? Down? Done that. Heel? Place? Recall? Center? Thresholds? Cap it? Psh, hold the leash, hold onto your hats, and prepare to be blown away. She's crate trained, potty trained, and well-behaved indoors, making her an excellent choice for apartment living. Her new adopters will also receive one session with her current trainer to ensure a smooth transition.

Mayu is currently being fostered with two resident cats and absolutely adores them in a very respectful way. She sits well in cars and loves being the hot passenger princess in a miata. Her fun-loving personality and contagious energy will make each day an adventure filled with joy and laughter. Even my friend who is admittedly “not a dog person” was absolutely taken by Mayu.

Are you someone who enjoys an active lifestyle and wants to explore the world of dog sports? Mayu is an absolute gem for anyone interested in dog sports and outdoor activities. Rally! Agility! Obedience! Nosework!

While Mayu is a fantastic match for experienced dog owners, she also holds great potential for dedicated first-time dog owners. With patience, love, and guidance, Mayu will become your most loyal and faithful companion. So, if you're ready to open your heart and home to this incredible German Shepherd mix, don't hesitate to reach out. Mayu is eagerly waiting to embark on new adventures with her forever family. Give her the love and care she deserves, and she will reward you with endless loyalty, companionship, and unforgettable moments.

Due to her energy level and size (50 lbs), she would thrive best in a home without small children or small dogs. Mayu is spayed and up-to-date on all vaccinations.
