Maya is a charming 4 year old “Mastiff-Lite.” Her mother was a stunning Mastiff and her dad was, well, a neighborhood Romeo.
Maya has the Velcro Dog temperament typical of Mastiffs, and can be standoffish with strangers. Men who are unknown to her will require an introduction. She may make a chirping birdlike noise when unsure, but will warm up once she knows the visitors are welcome. Maya is a talker and will bark to be let outside or to alert you to cars coming into your driveway.
She gets along with all other animals large and small, including farm animals (she is friends with a mini-pig!) Maya is a versatile girl and is happy to spend time lounging by the pool or binge watching Animal Planet, or the show of your choice (just don’t forget the snacks). Maya is crate trained, but has been reliable when out for the most part. She will offer to trade her favorite bone for a tasty item in the trash though.
Maya would make a great addition to pretty much any home. As a Mastiff mix she encompasses all of the positive traits we love about the Mastiff breed, but also has the somewhat more active energy level of a hound type dog. She loves to fetch and play in the water. Squeaky toys are also a favorite. Maya has solid basic obedience and has mastered, sit, stay and down.
