Nothing is tougher than cancer, except Maia, a brave little girl from Florida who the PuppySpot team recently had the honor to meet. Whenever Make-A-Wish receives a tail-wagging puppy wish request like Maia’s, they know just who to call. Make-A-Wish Southern Florida contacted the PuppySpot team, who jumped into action to bring Maia’s puppy wish a reality.
Maia has been in and out of the hospital with Malignant Neoplasm. She is incredibly brave, hopeful and would love a puppy by her side as she undergoes chemotherapy. When the time came to select Maia’s new puppy, the family fell in love with a Toy Poodle puppy named Camilla. She is an adorable sweetheart, and will be the perfect companion dog for Maia.
Once the decision was made, it was off to the vet for Camilla to receive her nose-to-tail health evaluation. Healthy, happy and ready to meet her new family, Camilla was escorted aboard the VIP PuppySpot plane from Indiana all the way to Florida.
There, Camilla met PuppySpot managers Gabriella Rosales & Katrina Clement, who spent plenty of time playing with Camilla, and acclimating her to her new environment. Once Camilla was rested and ready to go, Gabriella and Katrina rode with her to meet her new family.
The day only got better from there, as Maia’s whole family was extra excited to meet puppy Camilla! One of Maia's friends was even there to welcome Camilla and to be her new Tia (aunt). Maia loved meeting Camilla, who was overjoyed to see her new family, especially Maia, who she showered in love and puppy kisses.
Shortly after Camilla was settled in, we reached out to Maia’s family to check in on how things were going. They informed us that Camilla is fun-loving, sweet, and bonding well with the whole family, especially Maia.
Thank you, Make-A-Wish Southern Florida, for inviting us to be a part of such a special wish experience!
