Staff at the hospital have been trying to make up for that. They are showing Maya a lot of affection, and in return she is starting to show them some trust.
"She'll let you pet her and love on her," West says. "She's a good girl."
Maya is even beginning to walk willingly on a leash. At first, she'd refuse; she'd have to be carried. Now, says West, if you put a leash on her, "she'll follow you. She'll walk."
