Community rallies to find new resident's lost dog


“We’re going to try and sweep the woods,” Flanagan said. “She’s quick and she could be three towns over at this point, but we’re going to do what we can.”

Maya is a rescue dog that originally came from the Dominican Republic. Flanagan said she came to the states four years ago after a woman who visited the Dominican Republic teamed up with a shelter and came home with her and two other island dogs. Flanagan adopted Maya from the woman and she has been a part of her family ever since.

Flanagan described Maya as a “cuddler” who loves people and has a very relaxed and happy demeanor. She added that Maya is also very skittish and will probably run away if approached too quickly, so people should avoid giving chase if they encounter her.

“Loud noises sometimes scare her, and being away from me for a week I think anything would spook her,” Flanagan said. “If there is a sighting they should call me.”

In addition to her honey colored complexion, Maya also has several darker patches of fur, short ears, a long tail and no collar. Anyone who finds Maya is urged to call Flanagan at 845-527-1425 or the Amesbury Police at 978-388-1212.
