Surrender/Foster notes: " Maya is a wonderful pup, but has high anxiety in our very social, noisy household. She has a difficult time meeting strangers and seems upset by noisy, wiggly, new children and we are very concerned about her potentially having a dangerous interaction. We have kept all new children out of our house for 7 months. She will need a household without kids. We will happily provide all of our training to the new adopters. We've worked very hard with her and shes come an amazingly long way from the time we brought her home. She didn't appear to have been socialized with people or animals in her previous life, and wasn't completely house trained or trained at all. She's really doing great with her training and we'd like her new family to have as much info as possible. She'd like a home where her people are home often, she has separation anxiety and cannot be left in a crate or yard. She would do best in a house with a yard, she requires a lot of exercise but can't run off leash. She requires adults only who have experience with dogs with behavioral issues and no kids at all.

"We are hoping to find a new, loving home for our sweet girl - she's a part of our family and we absolutely adore her, but we feel that she would be a happier, less anxious pup in a quieter home without children.

She has a hard time with meeting new people in the house, and is especially anxious/nervous around new children (she occasionally snarls at our youngest daughter -- 6 years old -- when she's bothered while sleeping, but generally tolerates our kids and enjoys playing with them). Because Maya reaches her threshold so easily around new children who tend to be noisy and wiggly, we haven't been able to have children other than ours at home since we adopted her.

We've been working with a behavior specialist who believes that she can progress, but our hectic household is not ideal for the classical conditioning "set ups" that our trainer has provided instruction on, and we just don't see a promising way forward at this point. It's not sustainable for our family to not have children over indefinitely, and Maya doesn't do well locked in a crate or another room -- she gets very upset. We've sought a second and third opinion from other trainers who both suggested that Maya was a wonderful girl, but perhaps would do better in a different household without children.

Thanks so much for reading this."
