Maya (who sometimes goes by Potato) is a rare Canadian Devil Hound, a breed whose bulging eyes evolved to see well in the dark, and whose fierce underbite serves to capture bats while prowling the caves of the Canadian wilderness.

Since being tamed and settling down in Seattle with her family in 2014, Maya enjoys sitting on her front porch in the sunshine, taking short walks around the block, and foraging for any crumbs and scraps that might fall to the floor. When she’s not lounging at home with her best friend Molly, Maya keeps the JA team safe from winged mammals, for which she is rewarded with treats and snuggles, and compliments about her velvety-soft ears.
