Big ol' floppy ears, a little bit of drool, and a whole lot of love is what you'll get with Miss MAIZY, our Thursday Pet of the Week from It Takes a Village.

MAIZY is a four-year-old female bloodhound. This tan, droopy-eared girl weighs around 85 lbs. MAIZY was used as a breeder before being abandoned last year. She has been in a foster home learning what it means to be a member of a family. Her fosters have several other large dogs and she has also been around a small dog. MAIZY has done well with kids during meet and greets too. MAIZY would love to find an owner committed to keeping her healthy and happy. Her fosters say “she loves to run in the yard and then come inside to be a couch potato.” To adopt MAIZY, complete an online adoption application at ITVrescue.org.

Update: MAIZY, like a lot of bloodhounds, is having ear issues. We have surgery scheduled to address this. We are looking for a lower-activity home for her to recover in. For now, that means no young kids.

All of the animals at ITV are examined by a veterinarian, given age-appropriate vaccinations, microchipped, spayed or neutered and FIV/FeLV-tested.

ITV is open during regular hours now that the holidays are over. However, they have received so much support and interest over shut down, that they are still working diligently to review all correspondences. They appreciate everyone’s patience as they find the best matches for their rescues.
