All in the Family


Border Collie / German Shepherd Dog

This is Maisie who we adopted from a no-kill shelter. She had been brought back three times to the shelter. We had a little problem in the beginning with her but she settled in just fine. We love her dearly & can't imagine why she had been brought back to the shelter so many times. She loves to play and be chased, chase squirrels and go for long walks with her mommy! She fits into our family so well. Maisie loves everybody & wants everybody to love her in return. I can't imagine life w/o her!

Mar 27, 2010 pmkeeney
I LOVE Maisie's ears, but this picture is just too cute. She just tuckered herself out playing, no doubt. Lots of hugs and puppy kisses!

Maisie looks so happy with her toy. I am glad you were able to give her a permanent home. I couldn't imagine having to back to a shelter three times after thinking you might have finally found a family. It's great that she gets the love she deserves.

Too cute!!!!

Jul 2, 2010 Astroskylark
I love the ears and the slightly cocked head... As if she's saying: Who wants to plaaay?
Jul 2, 2010 Proves
The big smile says it all....she is happy, happy, happy. The people that returned her to the shelter didn't realize that they had a diamond in the rough. Great for you because she is now part of your family and real jewel. THANK YOU FOR ADOPTING HER!!!!
Jul 13, 2010 BonnieBoo.
Maisie is so pretty! I like that name :) Her mix is adorable! She is going in my favorites!
Jul 17, 2010 KatieLovesTess
She look so cheeky !! But adorable at the same time i bet she gets what ever she likes!
Jul 24, 2010 UrsaDad
After a faltering start, it looks like Maisie's found her niche. And it's a comfortable one. I prefer a good coffee and a danish, but this works too!

"They'll never find me here!"
Jul 30, 2010 janaS
Oh my God, tucked in just like mommy. It's obvious she is part of the family and well loved and taken care of. She definitely has some German shepherd in her. Lucky has a doggie bed (but insists on sleeping in mine at night over my legs under the covers)but Flo has an old human pillow and plush ex-blanket which he sleeps on, head on pillow just like yours. :)
Jul 30, 2010 janaS
I love this pic too, she seems so fun-loving and happy. I think she was meant to be with your family. She's still a youngster too (no more than 3 I'd guess), maybe the vet will be able to give you an idea. Many long, healthy and happy years to you all.
Aug 3, 2010 barb_dozer
OMG she is so cute!!! I cannot imagine why someone wouldn't and couldn't just LOVE that face!!! But it just means they weren't the right family for her and she kept coming back and waiting for you! She is adorable and looks extremely happy in her new life, family & looks very loved!!!

I really don't see how anyone could take this face back THREE TIMES. Jeez, what's wrong with people that they can't recognize utter awesomeness? Congratulations on getting the privilege to own sucha beauty.

Maisie is so gorgeous!!! She must be a smart girl, being a BC/GS mix. Boo sends lots of "special kisses" to Maisie the beautiful girl! Thanks for commenting on my pup!
Sep 5, 2010 yankigal
Awwwww....Maisie is ADORABLE & sounds like a sweetheart....and what a nice ending to her story!! It's so nice to hear stories like this because somehow, things worked out perfectly for everyone. Her pictures were all great but this reminds me of my little McGee because he is always covering himself like that and playing hide and seek with us!! Too cute!!
Sep 18, 2010 Alibee
what a cutie! I bet Rafa & Maisie would get along really well.

Aww she is so adorable!! I hope you have a nice life!
Nov 17, 2011 Jillandbronx
She is so cute! It looks like she could be related to Bronx! Lol
Nov 20, 2011 Missmilamae
My heart aches when I imagine what Maisie was thinking each time she was returned to the shelter. Thank you a zillion times for adopting, it is obvious that she is wildly, ecstatically happy with you. Thanks for your kind comments about my dogs also. I can relate to the "hyper"ness of your Maisie as my Dolly is the same...must be the Border Collie side of them. Couldn't live without it though...better than TV!!!
Nov 30, 2011 MissyMiss
aw thanks for your comment on my Missy! You're Maisie is so adorable, looks kinda like my Miss! :D
Dec 10, 2011 tacos1
So cute! I just love her ears!

Cute puppy. Quite a difference in looks between this one and an adult photo of her. Glad she ended up finding a forever home!
Jan 1, 2012 virgilsmama
Maisie and family, thank you for commenting on my sweet babies. I love your photos, all of them, but this is the best! This is how the pups should live, in comfort and obviously in love! Best of life to all of you and Happy New Year!
