My earliest memories are of being on the streets. In 2010 I was lost, out on my own, until Jason and Victoria found me and gave me a forever home. I like to think of them as my Human Family. We used to live in Venice California and life was pretty good. My days were filled with sunny spots, treats, and long beach walks. When it was nice out I got to play with my friends on the block, hang out at the coffee shop and lay in the grass. You don’t have to worry about me when it’s cold out as I’ve got plenty of outfits to choose from that keep me warm and dry. I loved my Venice life!
Exactly four months after we left Venice, while in San Pedro, Guatemala, My Family was volunteering at a spay and neuter clinic on Lake Atitlan. I wasn’t too excited when they were gone for the entire day, but I was even less excited when they got home with Maya in tow. Turns out she was staying with us. Forever.
It took me a little while to get used to being a big sister, especially now that she weighs a little more than four times what I do, but how can you not love this silly dog. She only has seven teeth, so her tongue is almost always hanging out of her mouth, but she has a ton of energy and loves to play. I’ve discovered that having a little sister is actually pretty fun.
Victoria & Jason
This is way before my time, but from what I’ve heard Victoria and Jason were both raised in New Jersey and ended up in Southern California in different ways. Victoria worked in the finance industry, and came to Los Angeles looking for a change of pace. Jason works in the film business and, after meeting Victoria at the Sundance Film Festival, moved across the country to be with his lady and further his career. They love the outdoor lifestyle here in Venice, and when they’re not hanging out with me they like to spend their free time riding bikes, camping, hanging out by the beach and kicking back with their friends.
