Hello, my name is Maple

I am a two-year-old boy, they tell me I am a Kelpie something cross, initially they told me I was part beagle, but my legs just kept growing, so now we are not completely sure.

This is my second time being cared for by the Shari team, when I was a puppy, my 4 siblings and I were found by the side of the road on the Sunny coast, hence my name, as we were found near Mapleton. I was adopted by a family who loved me heaps, but sadly had some big life changes and had to rehome me. I am currently in foster care with one of my littermate brothers. We look almost exactly the same!

I am a very loving boy, I like to think of myself as a lapdog, am very loyal, and expect lots of pats and love. I also have lots of energy and need to be with people who can find ways to keep up with my energy. I am also very smart and need things to keep my mind busy too, I have recently been learning some new tricks.

I need a family that will be patient with my training. My foster family says l that I am a bit special at times, especially when being taken for walks on my lead around the neighbourhood, I cry/howl/bark when I see or hear other dogs. I just need some patient training. I love off lead walks and adventures with my brother. I feel more in control running in nature than I do when I’m being walked around the neighbourhood. I have just discovered the beach in the last couple of weeks too!

My foster family have older kids, who I adore! I get very excited with little kids and want to lick them.... they don’t always enjoy this I have grown up with another dog and enjoy doggie company. I have not been tested with cats.
