Maya is a golden oldie of a female Fox Terrier, who has had a difficult life to say the least. We hope someone will find it in their heart to finally give this loveable teddy bear of a dog a forever home to call her own.

Terrier SOS says of Maya:

This is Maya – a wonderful fox terrier that has had a very tough life.  She was straying on the streets of Spain when a very kind soul picked her up and asked for help.  We were contacted and knew her life had to change!

She had been used as a breeding machine – she had been left in a terrible condition – severe ear infection, mastitis, the start of pyometra, mammary tumours, horrific teeth, covered in fleas and the list went on.  She has had several operations, and lots of TLC and she is now ready to travel to the UK.

Maya is about 11 years old; she is deaf (as a consequence of the untreated ear infection). She is dog and people friendly and just needs a home that will love her to bits. She also had several lumps removed from the base of her tail. Some lumps have reappeared on her back legs, which are being removed, but she may have them return.

She is a super adorable girl and absolutely gorgeous.

Maya can be found among Terrier SOS’s dog’s awaiting travel to the UK.

Terrier SOS was set up to highlight the plight of terriers in Europe and, through a network of volunteers, find them a safe place, whether in rescue or foster homes. While Terrier SOS helps dogs in other countries, Spain is the main focus of its work, many of the dogs being rescued having been abandoned by British expats returning to the UK. In some cases, the dogs are brought back to the UK.

Go on, give Maya a loving home. If you’re not in a position to do that, please share this post with others. There are also other ways to help Terrier SOS, such as by donating or volunteering as a foster carer.
