- When Mya was rescued from the streets and went home with her foster mom for the first time, she had lost appetite for food.
- It was understandable because she clearly had a rough life on the streets but her mom never gave up on her and helped her heal.
- Now she’s extremely passionate for food and goes around the house carrying her food bowl!
The first time Mya, a brindle pittie, came home with her foster mom Briana Maiola, she was in bad shape and refused to eat.
It was apparent that her life on the streets of Rochester, New York, was pretty rough and she had a number of health problems.
But Briana took good care of her and she started to heal gradually until her appetite for food came back and it was quite intense!
“She hated food. We had to force-feed her for months until I decided to try a raw diet,” Briana told The Dodo. “She loved the raw food and started dancing with her bowl!”
Now, the 3-year-old Mya loves food so much she begs for it all the time!
When she’s hungry, she always tries to get her mom’s attention by going around the house carrying her bowl, wagging her tail, begging — and she always succeeds.
“She likes to bring them all over, outside, inside … we find bowls everywhere,” Briana said. “She picks up bowls for snacks or attention. She’s basically obsessed with carrying bowls.”
Mya can be very persistent but Briana doesn’t mind at all. Besides the pup had been through so much she deserves to get fed however often she likes it!
“Every morning, she throws her bowls against the bedroom door if we are late getting up and talks like a little Chewbacca until we feed her,” Briana said. “Some people might find this annoying, but I will never take her appetite for granted!”
Besides walking around with her food bowl, Mya also loves to cuddle with her dog sister, playing with her older dog brother, or bonding with mom which Briana loves as much.
“Every day she makes life better,” Maiola said. “She’s the puzzle piece we didn’t know we were missing.”
