Mazie is a sweet female terrier dog currently residing at Cause For Paws of NC.
Mazie is already house-trained. She's vaccinated.
Mazie's current caretakers say:
Mazie is a sweet two-year-old shy girl. She loves to be around her humans and other dogs. Mazie needs someone who will be patient with her because she is extremely timid and needs encouragement to open up. Once she's comfortable with you, she is so loving and mild-natured. Mazie is crate-trained and sleeps in her crate throughout the night. She is also house-trained and walks great on a leash. She also loves kids, adults and to be close by at all times. Mazie is a sweet gentle dog who will make the perfect companion to someone who can be loving and patient with her.

Mallory is a female terrier dog currently housed at Freedom Ride Rescue.
Mallory already has had all of her shots, and she's spayed.
Here's what Mallory's friends at Freedom Ride Rescue think of her:
Mallory came to us as "feral." She is completely at ease at Freedom Ride Rescue, but she is quite timid and verbal around new people. She will require a lot of patience and someone who understands it has to be on her terms. Mallory is working on house-training, and she is great with both large and small dogs. Mallory will do best with a companion. She has a big personality and likes to be rubbed, but she does not like to be picked up.
