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 are in a foster home where they are making slow progress in accepting humans. They enjoy playing with the family's Great Pyrenees and are much more relaxed with HER than with humans.

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.
