Maya is a sable fawn female feathered Saluki and will be available for adoption as soon as she has been spayed. She has had shots and a number of tests in an effort to make sure she is healthy. The vet thinks Maya is approximately two years old, and her foster 'moms' have noted she is very sweet and easy. Her story is below.
We prefer not to transport her on a van nor would we fly her on commercial flights, so our wish is that her potential adopters will consider driving to Colorado Springs to pick her up.
For any information or for an adoption application please feel free to reach out to Janet Noll firstname.lastname@example.org
By Gina Hayden:
I guess I was a bad girl. When the man yelled at me to load in the truck I got frightened and ran back and the boy dog came with me. The man yelled and yelled and then he got in his truck and drove away.
Some other people tried to catch us but we were too afraid and ran away. We were all alone in the place called Wyoming and it was cold and the white stuff was falling and made us very cold.
Then I found a house and the people gave me food. They tried to catch me but I was too afraid. At night I looked in the window and it looked warm but I was too afraid to try to go in the house.
Then a lady named Dusty came and tried to catch me. But I wouldn't let her. I'm a saluki so I am fast. And I was afraid.
Then another lady named Kacy came and brought her dog. And her dog seemed happy and it led me into the barn and they caught me! But I was so afraid!!
Dusty put me a a wire box and took me to her home and it was warm and she fed me but she has little dogs and they barked and I was afraid.
The next day, Dusty put me in a wire box in her truck and took me for a long drive. When we stopped there was another lady named Gina. She made me get out of the wire box and she took me over to some grass. I don't like peeing on the leash thing but I had not peed in a long time so I peed and peed and peed. Gina said I peed a river. Then she put me in her car in a wire box and we drove a long time.
When we got to her house she put me in a big metal pen and I pooped right away. There was a dog house with a soft bed so I curled up in there. But she didn't let me sleep very long.
She put me back in the car and we went to a place called the vet. They weighed me and I weigh 47 pounds. Gina said that was good for a saluki girl!
Then we went in a room with a man who seemed very nice. He petted me and looked at my teeth and my ears. BUT THEN he poked me with needles for something called 'Vaccinations." AND THEN He poked me again and took my blood for something called "tests." Then I just wanted to leave that place and out at the front desk I stood up and put my paws on the counter so Gina would know I wanted to leave! So she left her stuff on the counter and took me out to the wire box. Then she went back in and paid for all the pokes!
Then she took me to the house of a lady called Daphane. They took me out to a place called a kennel because they said I have to be isolated for a couple days to make sure I won't make their salukis sick. They must love their saluki if they are worried about them getting sick. I hope they can find me someone to love me that much. Someone who will never take me to a place called Wyoming and leave me out in the white cold stuff!
I didn't mind the kennel. It was warm and quiet and I was so tired I curled up and fell asleep while they were still talking. The lady named Daphane said she would bring me some food later. I hope I can wake up to eat it!
