Maybach was found wandering with our little puppy Bowie and one other dog in the Bayou St. John area of New Orleans. They appear to have been abandoned. Maybach is a very small teenaged pit male -- he currently weighs about 33lbs and is about 8 months old. Maybach is a super-sweet, happy, friendly guy who is learning his manners. He is red brindle with white and a mostly white face, except one adorable red spot around his eye. He's so handsome!
