Maaya, pit bull terrier and black Labrador retriever mix

Maaya is a female pit bull terrier and black Labrador retriever puppy in the care of Bright Point Rescue.

Maaya will get along great with your other dogs. She is already house-trained. She is vaccinated.

Maaya’s current caretakers say:

Maaya is a puppy with a lot of energy who loves to play. She does not realize her size and strength and would be best suited for a playmate of equal or larger size (no small dogs ⁠— she would likely be too rough of a player for them). She is a cuddle bug and considers herself a lap dog.
