I would love you more than you can imagine.
Maynard was just 3 months old when he, his mom Violet, and two siblings were picked up by animal control in rural Oklahoma. They were picked up from a property where they were in the pasture with goats. Animal control had to use a "catch-pole" to catch them because the whole little family was showing a fair amount of fear-based aggression. Sadly, the animal control officer made the decision to euthanize one puppy, saying s/he was too aggressive. It's really hard to imagine a 3-month old puppy being so aggressive that an experienced person couldn't have dealt with the issue, but seeing that the "shelter" was willing to put down a puppy, one local person volunteered to foster Violet and her remaining two puppies until she could find a rescue to take them in.
When we brought them here, the puppies (whom we named Nell and Maynard) were very frightened, and they tried to avoid my attempts to touch them, but they were never aggressive. They simply acted like feral pups who had ZERO experience with humans, other than their very unfortunate interaction with animal control.
Maynard and his sister Nell have been in our rescue for more than 6 years. They are house/potty-trained, crate-trained, and they will walk on a leash reasonably well. But they still do not really want any interaction with humans. They appreciate having a routine, and they enjoy playing with other dogs. But they will avoid humans if they possibly can. They tolerate when we pet them, but it's hard to say they actually enjoy it.
If you have the patience and compassion to love Maynard and work with him to overcome his difficult start in life, please complete the application on our website at www.bluebonnetrescue.org.
