Maizy is an 8-year-old female Lab Whippet mix dog who is looking for a new, loving home in or near Ventura, CA. Her owners are heartbroken to have to rehome her, but circumstances have made it necessary.
Like many dogs, Maizy is fearful, and possibly a little jealous, of her owner’s baby son. Dogs don’t always know what to think about babies and toddlers. They make strange, loud noises, have a lot of funny smells, move in ways that dogs don’t recognize as like their owner, and they take up almost all of their owner’s time.
Maizy was her owner’s baby for so many years, and was very attached to her. When the baby came along, in Maisy’s view, she was replaced, which could also contribute to some jealousy on her part. Maizy has lived so long as the center of attention that she really needs a home where she can be the center of attention again.
Her owner has been doing her utmost to make sure that Maisy feels loved and gets plenty of attention and affection, but this doesn’t seem to change her behavior towards the little one.
As a result of this situation, Maizy needs a home where there are no small children. The little fellow is now quite mobile and toddling around the house, making Maizy’s anxiety increase. Maisy’s owner is devastated about the situation, but realizes that there is no choice in the matter. She is dearly hoping that a very good home can be found for Maisy with somebody who can spend lots of time with her and let her spoil you with her loving nature.
Maizy is such a special dog who is adorable, very friendly to adults and older kids, relaxed in most situations, a good walking/hiking partner, and requires minimal grooming. Her owners are hoping to find a home where Maizy will be loved unconditionally and taken care of for the remaining years of her life.
She would make a fantastic companion for active, retired dog lovers who don’t have small grandchildren visiting, but equally suitable for a work-from-home dog lover who enjoys getting outdoors and exploring this beautiful area.
If you are interested in adopting Maizy, please fill out the online meeting request form below. There is a modest adoption/rehoming fee, and it includes supplies and veterinary records.

A HUGE people pet. Absolutely loves just about every person she meets and is very excited to meet new people. She also loves being outdoors for walks, hikes, and general lounging around in the backyard. Her energy levels, which ones were very high, have become less as she has gotten older, so this would make her a great fit for an active senior dog lover.
As long as she is in a comfortable location with at least one person around, she is usually a pretty relaxed dog.
Maizy’s Favorite Toys, Foods, Activities?
Loves basking in the sun and getting belly rubs. Really enjoys peanut butter, cheese, and greenies. Maizy is relatively ambivalent towards toys. She used to play with them more but doesn’t as much anymore.
Cute Maizy Story:
One time we had some whipped cream and we were spraying little bits of it on her nose for her to lick off and she got so excited and was leaning back so far to try and get the whipped cream that she topped over backwards and it was hysterical. We have a video of it somewhere that I am not able to find at the moment but I might be able to later.
Tragically, with the arrival of their first born child, Maisy became increasingly anxious around the baby. As he has become more mobile and is now toddling around, exploring his environment, Maizy has become aggressive towards him. This is her way of saying “Stay away from me, I don’t feel comfortable near you”, but 1 year olds do not understand or notice the signals that dogs give. As a result, has become necessary to rehome Maizy into a situation where there are no small children.
Maizy would do very well in a quiet home with a strong routine, where she will be given adequate activity and lots of affection and attention from her owner. She is a very friendly, sweet and affectionate dog that has a lot of love left to give. Her owner is devastated with having to rehome Maisy, and would really appreciate someone who would be willing to keep in touch, and maybe even meet up for a hike once in a while.
