Farmer Maria hails from down south. We think she is half Carolina dog and AmStaff. She came north by way of an organization called Three Diva's Dog Rescue. The Divas' helped her raise 14 fabulous puppies in Fair Haven, Vermont. Maria and her pups have an annual birthday party in Vermont.
Maria's job is to keep the farm free of vermin and geese. She welcomes human visitors with a smile and wag, and will power lean in for a hug and pets. She is great with kids of all ages. She has worked as a therapy dog in the past, and Baylee is being trained to take her into more situations where she can be petted while brightening everyone's day.
Maria welcomed home Luca, a cattle dog, Husky, Great Pyrenees and probably something else too, southern rescue dog. He kicks birds of prey off the farm, and keeps us laughing with his antics. Maria taught him how to hunt last year and now he is a proficient Vole Eradicator. He has learned many manners in the last year and a half.
