MAIJA is the one!!
MAIJA is a 12 week old shepherd mix . Its hard to tell how big she will get. Her mother was only 49 lbs.
This girl is awesome. She loves everyone, including cats and goats . She would love to share a home with a dog or two!
She’s fun to have around. Sometimes she picks up treasures ( a stick, a toy) in the House then takes it to her bed. She listens well. She is also now learning commands. She is crate trained and very comfortable in her crate. She’s a good girl who sleeps the whole night through.
What more can you ask for ?
Maija is the one you’ve been waiting for !!

Adoption Policy:

  • Complete an adoption application and submit it. You will receive an onscreen confirmation we received it.
  • Once your application is initially reviewed, we then contact your veterinarian and references. After that, a H.E.L.P. volunteer will contact you. Please be patient, this does take some time especially over a weekend. Please allow 24-72 hours for us to make contact with you.
  • All members of the family must be present in order to adopt. We want to make sure it's a good fit for everyone!
  • Because this is a life time commitment, once you meet the foster dog, there is a 24 hour waiting period for you to make sure that the fit is right for everyone. So many people see a cute face and want to take them home right away without really thinking about it. The waiting period also allows you to get supplies ready for your new one.
  • We do not ship dogs within or out of the state.


  • Puppies 12 months and younger are $300.
  • Adult Dogs over 12 months and younger than 7 years old are $250.
  • Senior Dogs over 7 years are $200.
