I just wanted to share some pics of my Maeven (aka GRROW Darla). It’s been nearly a year since we were blessed with her. We are so thankful and grateful for Miss Mae. She is a wonderfully old soul and brings me so much comfort. She’s a lazy pooch, but her presence is a strong one. I really feel like she rescued me. She’s like my own personal therapy companion. She’s so amazing with cats and children, other dogs too. Thank you, GRRoW.

Darla found the perfect home. More information to come.

Darla is doing very well. She is spayed, up to date on her vaccinations and healthy. She did have some tumors removed from her mammary area but all came back cancer free and completely excised. She is doing very well with her socialization and is approaching humans without issue. She is very good with other dogs after she gets to know them. She does tell them to get out of her face at first when they arrive at my house. She did this to an one year old inside the house but the next day they were playing in the back yard. She wants to play with other dogs so much. She will benefit from a shy dog class. She still likes to chew up our clothing if we leave it on the floor. She is house trained here but we have a dog door for her to go out. When she is gated in the office she does fine.

Darla is slowly coming out of her shell. She is coming up to us to be petted with her head up instead of down. So far she has learned the sit command when we are inside the house. She is becoming more and more comfortable in our surroundings. We have not ventured out much except our walks. She walks right next to us and will start to go to the end of the leash towards the end of our walk. She is starting to enjoy them more. She is more in her element outside. That is where she is most comfortable. She will run around, chew on bones and her kongs. She has been a bit of a stinker and is taking clothing items outside during the day. She also will chew up clothing, plastic bags and paper. She will take stuff off the table and counter too. We have a dog door which she uses when she needs to go to the bathroom. So she is now gated in the office. She has not done anything wrong when she is in there even though I have tested her by leaving stuff on the table. She is getting spayed on Nov. 13th. She is definitely a dog that will need an experienced home that will be able to help her become a confident and relaxed dog. It will take a lot of training, patience and time to give her the life she deserves.

We got Darla in with two other females from a "breeder". Darla had wandered onto the person's property so we brought her in too. She is very shy and un-socialized. I took her to the vet that evening to find she has worms and fleas.
