Pet Details


Arya is a beautiful young black lab mix that will need a very special forever home.  Arya is high energy, intelligent, eager to please, and bonds strongly. She has bonded with the staff and volunteers that care for her at MH and can be protective of her people. Due to her fear of strangers, we are requiring three to five meet and greets (depending on how quickly Arya warms to you) prior to adoption. With patience and plenty of high-value treats, Arya's sweet disposition and playful nature quickly become apparent. Once Arya trusts you, she is very easy to leash up, handle, and has excellent leash manners. You can walk slowly or jog and she will match your pace!  She is a true treasure just looking for the right family with the commitment and patience to help her blossom. 

Arya has a positive history with cats in her first home, and reportedly has done well with and enjoys other dogs, so a home with a confident dog would be a bonus. Due to her fearful disposition of strangers, and strong need for consistent structure, Arya is not recommended to homes with young children. 

Arya is located at the Edgecomb campus of Midcoast Humane.  If you have any questions about this unique young lady, please call 207-449-1366 ext. 302 to schedule a day and time to meet her.  She will need to meet all family members including any canine siblings, before she is able to go home.  The shelter will set up a meet and greet schedule for you after the initial visit.  PLEASE NOTE: The Edgecomb campus is not open to the general public.

This animal’s adoption fee is $0 because they need a very special home! They may have medical or behavioral needs that will require their new owners to invest in them, or they may have been waiting a really long time for just the right person! Ask a team member for details, or visit to learn more. We recommend a donation to help support all of our animals as no animal is ever really “free.”

I am a part of Midcoast Humane's No Paw Left Behind initiative. This means that I have been available for adoption for over 30 days. Please read more about me here on our No Paw Left Behind facebook page:
