Maybelle has been with us longer than any of our dogs. She’s a wonderfully sweet girl and likely gets overlooked a lot because of her age. She was immediately interested in her new Kong and, even though she didn’t chew on it right away, I’m sure she will once we fill it with yummy peanut butter! Having durable toys that she can chew on or play with will make her stay here more comfortable and hopefully make her stand out and look more endearing to potential adopters, too. There are three pictures of her with her Kong included! Meet her:
